on board battery charger

Post by richg99 » 20 Mar 2017, 15:26

I have a 5 amp for both a deep cycle and a regular starting battery. I put it on a lamp timer. It is set to charge an hour or two every day. I set full a full 24 hour charge after heavy usage, though.

I have a Pro Mar single bank I had intended to use, now I am thinking of just mounting a charger on the side of the shop wall and using it. I don't want any more weight in the boat than absolutely has to be.

I have a Minn Kota 330D on my boat and love it. Probably one of the best investments I made for the boat. This a robust charger at 10 amps x 3 banks. I went this route because I routinely drain batteries dead trolling and want a complete charge as quick as possible. I have a 24V trollingmotor system and a starting battery.

Has anyone seen or used this before https://www.bluesea.com/products/7650/A ... Kit_-_120A, I thought it would be nice to charge both battery's while under power of the outboard and not using the trolling motor.

I will be putting one in when I start the wiring of my renovation. I have used switches like that in other vehicles but not on a boat.
