New charger recommendation?

Looks I need to replace two 8D batts and a Charles 35amp charger. Who has a favorite charger brand/model that I should consider?

Re: New charger recommendation?

Alright I will bite and throw out a brand you have probably never heard of..

The PO of our boat installed an Quick SBC charger over 10 years ago. The thing has been a tank. It has been fed voltages ranging from 90V to 300V AC and it never skips a beat. Until we bought our boat, I had never heard of that company. Now, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one (considering all our cruising friends with Mastervolt, Xantrex and Victron seem to only get 3-4 years.)

Re: New charger recommendation?

Following this thread with interest , I need a new one too . Actually I have had a Guest Pro 3 stage 10 Amp for quite some time and it is still working well . We have a 225 AH house bank (T105's) in a series . I have read that you should size a charger at 10% of the AH's , so I'm thinking of one of these .
