24 volt charging ??

9 posts in this topic

I just got a 24 volt minkota trolling motor. This is my first time dealing with 24 volts. I have 2 battery chargers. My question is when I charge the batteries- do I have to disconnect the batteries and charge them seperatly? What is the proper way to charge the batteries with out an on board charger? Thanks for any help!

the proper way is to charge each one the best thing is to get a duel on board charger all you have to do is just plug it in

You'll need a 2 bank charger or will have to disconnect and move wires.

Run one bank's wires to one battery and the other bank to the other battery and you should be in business.

as the two posts above have said, its just best to get a dual charger... you will be glad you did! Heck, get a 3 bank and hook up your starter battery as well.. I have a 10-10-3amp and love it.

A good point Deitz... it fyou can swing it it's nice to have the piece of mind that your starting battery is charged too...

These on board chargers are the way to go. The boat I purchased had a 2 bank already installed. One does the 24v the other does the starting batt. It is so easy to just plug it in!

Do you have a 24 volts charger on one bank and 12 on the other bank then? Otherwise, how is it charging both batteries with one bank? I wasn't aware you could do that and other way...

I just read about Stay-n-charge for the 24 volts- does any one have any comments on this set up?

They work pretty good... I don't have any experience with the 24 volt system but a friend had the 12V system and it worked pretty good.

The drawback is on an overnight fishing trip when you leave your boat in the water you have no way to charge your batteries vs running an extension cord out and charging them.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?  
    • sheez reb................i hadda clean all your slobber off the inside my screen when i opened this thread!!!!!!!!!!
