battery charger

10 posts in this topic

MinnKota --

Do you guys like the Kota brand on-board charger? I got the Dual Pro from Skeels last year and it was a great one.

Now I have to get a new one because of the whole new-boat thing.

Which one do you guys use and why?

Some say to stay away from the 20 amp per cell trickle because it will kill your battery.

Hey Da-hitman I would maybe put this under Expert/Equipment, it seems that gets tons of hits per day and I think you would some answers quick, sorry to say not everyone checks the DL forum.

Minn Kota's are fine, 10amps would be sufficient. Dual Pro makes a nice charger, but I think you'll be ok with Minn Kota.

We have the Minn Kota charger and it works fine with our 24 volt system set up for our trolling motor. I have no complants with it.

The guy we are buying it from keeps saying that the MinnKota is better and if there are problems with it they are easier to work with.

Hard to tell if he is just trying to sell that one because it has better profit levels or spiffs or what?

Maybe he just likes it better - -I don't know.

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.

      What's the Ice thickness on Blue now?  I'm considering driving out tomorrow on Blue. Has anyone fished Crappies or Sunnies Mon, Tues or Weds this week?
