Re: Using a 17.0Ah battery on FiOS battery backup
Thank you for the valuable information directly related to my situation.
I'm similarly inclined to believe the charging circuitry is designed to work best with a 7Ah battery. Putting ourselves in the shoes of the designers who made specification decisions years ago, we likely can assume - with confidence - that they did not take into consideration our desire to use larger capacity batteries with their charging system.
Your suggestion to use an independently maintained external battery connected to the AUX port sure solves the problem with minimal fuss. I think I will go that route. Any suggestions on a type of charger for the external battery?
Thanks again, birdfeedr!
