battery charger - which type?

6 posts in this topic

Just got a couple of new batteries for my boat to power my trolling motor, lights, fish finder, etc. The charger I have now will not give me a correct reading on how charged the battery actually is, it is giving it juice but the charger isn't recognizing the battery's charge.

I think I need a new charger- what do you guys recommend? My batteries are Napa Marine Deep Cycles with 80 amp hours.

Or are certain battery chargers better than others?

I have a Minkota and have good luck with it. Im on my 3rd year with it and I had another minkota on my old boat for about 6 years.

Dual Pro and Guest would be others to look into.

I have a Dual Pro in my boat now and think it's top of the line. I previously had a Guest and had no complaints with it either.

Feel free to check out Pro Fishing Supply if you want, I carry several different chargers from Dual Pro, Guest and Minnkota and have excellent pricing on all of them.

BTW Minnkota just came out with a rebate on their Charger models 210, 220, 315 and 330. I think it's a $25 rebate on each model and goes through the end of the year.

Dual Pro!

Are you considering a 3 bank charger to top off your starting battery?

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.  
    • Inaugural concert attendance (estimated):   Obama 2009: 400,000 Trump 2017: 10,000   Also Trump nodded off because it was so great.
    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
    • That a shot at me being former military?
