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...

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
