Squadron 42 Battery Life

Post by waggysenior » Tue Apr 02, 2019 5:42 pm

Hi All
My 2013 Squadron 42 is showing signs of imminent battery death, (charging OK but charge depleting very rapidly, even under negligible load). Anyone any experience of what sort of battery life is realistic to expect please? I'm pretty sure the existing batteries are the originals, so coming up to six years old now.
Thanks

Not sure what life should be, but I purchased a 2015 Squadron which is on its second set of batteries.

Having now changed the batteries I'd say these are its third set at 6 years old, so looks like three years per set of batteries is realistic. Doesn't help that the Marina's shore power is unreliable and only works erratically, hence variable charging, but that seems to be 'the norm' in some parts of the Med.
