Re: Charger Recomendation

A year or so ago I installed a Charles 5000SP and have had no problems with it at all. My only frustration might be that the battery type selector switch is on the back and hidden when mounted. OTOH, that could be a plus as it won't easily get switched.

Marine: 5000 SP Series Battery Chargers

My previous charger was a Xantrex Freedom charger/inverter. It failed, and probably lowered the life expectancy of our batteries.
