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.

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.

      I have never fished it in the winter. Do not know of anyone that has either. Should be good though! Cliff
