Great service from Yandina

I have to thank publicly the folks at Yandina for going WAY above and beyond with their customer support!!!!

2002 or so I installed a West Marine branded 150 amp battery combiner. It was made by Yandina (

Here we are in 2016 and although the unit was still working, I had broken the case and had taped it up to try to keep it working. The tape job was at least 6-7 years ago. Note there was no case on part of it.... Only gaff tape (theater tape from years of concert touring).

I removed the engine for a rebuild a while ago and took out a bunch of stuff so I could paint the engine room.

They took the thing back and refurbished it and PAID the shipping back to me. A 15 year old marine electrical part. Good luck if it was balmar or xantrex.

Now if the above isn't proof that the product works, and the company is stand-up more than most in the yachting industry, I don't know what is.

West Marine doesn't carry the stuff any longer, but you can and should buy from them directly!!!!


And back to your regularly scheduled program.

Along those same lines, 12 years ago when I bought my '75 Cal 34, I bought and installed a Yandina manufactured Combiner. It has sat their quietly separating then combining my batteries (during charging) for the entire time without a hitch. Excellent product!

Great products. I bought a 130A combiner from WM in 1998. Still going strong.
