Electricity on the vessel is one of the most important things on it. Especially important is storage of the electricity. The most common way of storing the electricity is the electric batteries. Without electricity on the board, it is not possible to start the engine, to use the anchor winch, the navigation tools, autopilot, to turn on the lights, to listen to the radio, to cool the beer and to use the electric toilet.
Until recently I was convinced, that the electric energy on my sailing boat was well-taken care of. I changed batteries three years ago and I expected that electric system on my sailing boat would function well. At that time I also integrated a solar panel and was certain, that the solar panel would solve all my demands for electric energy. But already on my last holidays, I had a feeling that I had to charge batteries more often with my engine, especially because we rarely made stops in marinas.
