Are you looking for an on-board or portable charger? I just bought a Pro-Mariner on-board charger. Haven't had a chance to install it yet, but I'm sure someone here will give you a review of them. In the past, I've used a MinnKota portable charger and I really like it. Simple and fast. I'm sorry, but I don't remember the amps off-hand. I can check when I get home.

I just installed a 12 amp two bank ProMariner in the boat. It has these features.

1. Distributed On Demand Tech. Basically it will distribute the charge to what needs it most. For expample it may put 10 amps to the trolling battery and two the the starting/lights/live well battery.

2. Automatic Multi Stage charging. Charges, conditions and maintains battery. Can be left plugged in for extended times without battery damage.

I ran the plug to a bulkhead so I can plug it in without climing in the boat.

I don't know if this one is better than others but the two featurs listed are good things to have.

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
