I hope I can be some help for the plan/testing, having had a deep cycle battery and alt delete running for almost a year. So my questions are in that spirit: Won't a 210 ahr battery need at least a 90amp charger or an equally powerful alternator to get a true full charge? With less, won't the battery degrade in its ahr capacity kinda quickly?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
