4 posts in this topic

What brand of on board battery charger's have you guys had good luck with, I need a new one, my 3 year old $409.00 dollar charger went out with no warranty left. frown.gif I need a 3 bank and prefer a 30 amp unit. Thanks for any comments.

the minnkota chargers have a rebate on them right now, the 30 amp is a $45 rebate. 3 year warrenty on em. just bought a 2 bank and it sure seems like a solid unit.

I have the MinnKota 3 bank charger. I'd suggest you purchase the lowest ampere trical charge, preferably 2amps or whatever it's called. The lower the amp, the better charge your battery will get. It will take a little longer to charge, but well worth it to save money on getting new batteries.

Do a search in this forum and the boat & motors forum. This topic has come up a couple of times already this year with lot's of good information in them.

If it were me I'd buy a 3 Bank Dual Pro Charger.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
