    Steve,

    According to East Penn (Deka and MK battery brands), a fully charged and rested (no charging or discharging for several hours) 12 V AGM battery should read 12.8 V or higher. For a 24 V system, that would be 25.6 V.

    See: http://www.eastpenn-deka.com/assets/base/0139.pdf

    I also have a 24 V x 400 Ah AGM battery bank (Deka). The batteries are three years old this month, and they're doing just fine. :cool: I use OutBack's FLEXmax 80 charge controller with the optional remote battery temp sensor (BTS), and I use the following charger settings:

    Absorb Voltage (ref 77 F): 28.7 V
    Absorb Time: 2-1/2 hours
    Float Voltage (ref 77 F): 26.7 V

    HTH,

    what jim has said would apply to lifeline or sunxtenders too as my voltages are similar.
