1985 944 Overcharging

Electrical

When my battery recently died (prematurely) I noticed that it was being charged with 17v. I assumed it was a bad voltage regulator and replaced it. Now it reads 16v at the battery cables. Is that OK? Am I ruining another battery? Is the alternator faulty (rather than just the regulator)?
