    Hi not sure but if you give Glenn or Ian a ring during the day they should be able to tell you.

    If I may..

    No, you will not have to change the alternator
    The charging rate is not affected by the size of battery, only how long it takes to fully charge.
    The change from 80 Ah to 110Ah will make not a jot of difference to the performance of the alternator :Smile:

    As a by the by, almost all modern alternators are rated at 40A + maximum charge rate
