    Default Best Battery Charger

    Hello all,
    I am looking to upgrade my boat, and need some advice on battery chargers, what is the best 2 bank battery charger for the money?

    I bought a Pro Mariner earlier this year. It has done a great job. The one I got is a 3 bank charger. As it finishes a battery it will divert it unused charging capacity to they other banks to allow them to charge faster. It only takes a couple of hours to bring the batteries back to full charge
    :I would like to thank the builders of docks for giving me a place to fish and lose tackle

    As long as you get a digital/smart battery charger, you're ahead of the game. IMHO

    If you're cramped for space to mount the charger, check out NOCO Genius Genpro 10x2 ($200/Amazon) (*they're made in USA, if that has any persuasion on your purchase)

    I have a Minn-Kota 220 in my boat, but only because it came with the boat when I purchased it from a friend. My buddy has NOCO chargers in his boat, and I just got a friend to purchase a NOCO for her trolling motor battery on her pontoon. IF my MK220 ever gives up the ghost, I'll probably replace it with a NOCO.

    I have a genius one bank for my little Jon, just cuz I donít remember to take care of a regular charger after so many years of having one on my other boats. That one has a pro mite 3 bank that i bought in about Ď09 and has never missed a beat. Both are worth the money.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    Minn Kota Precision 212 . Can set to charge all types of batteries . I was told not to go less than 6 amp. per lead . Have never not been ready the next day even after trolling the day before on 24 volt system .

    I had 2 pro mariners and they both gave up the ghost. Been more than satisfied (so far) with my minn kota. BTW, all were 3 bank chargers.
    Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.
