Can I get too big an onboard charger for my boat?

5 posts in this topic

Found a real deal on a Minnkota 460 Onboard charger. 4 banks, 15 amps each. I've a starter battery for my 75hp, and three deepcycles for trolling motors. I'd like to say I fish alot, but that kind of comes and goes.

Will the a15 amp chargers adversely affect my batteries? The charger should start high and taper down to maintenance level...any thoughts on the idea of having too big a charger? Is there such a situation?

From the respones on the other post, as long as it's an automatic shut off, doesn't overheat the batteries, you should be fine.

Too big a charger? That is like a car that is too fast or having too much money.

The charger your refer to is made for your intended purpose.

Thanks for the comments - never can be too sure, especially when I'm doing the thinking...

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
