chargers

There is another solution for quality chargers that are used every day. I have a three bank charger on my bass boat. I am showing a relatively inexpensive charger that will charge two banks at the same time. If you need more current you can spend more and get higher capacity. This charger will bring two batteries up over night easily. If you have a large bank then you should consider a bigger one. You can get these in single charger models as well. They are smart chargers and I leave my boat plugged in 24/7 and have not had a battery boil.

That looks like a good charger, but I'm sure you pay a premium for the marine option.

I bought a Power On Board Smart Charger from Sam's Club for $50 in `07. It developed some LED problems and I couldn't tell what mode it was in. It had everything. Recondition, Equalize, Alternator Test, Voltage, Wet, Gel, AGM, 2/10/25, Float + 75A Start mode and Temperature Compensation. All that and good instructions too. It was a model # VEC1095APOB and I think it was sold by B&D , Vector and others. I liked that charger.

Edit: Found and ordered one from Amazon for $55.

Hi Mike Canter,
With the following quote from your post, we are on the same page.

"Now you could hook it up to the WHOLE house battery bank and to the WHOLE chassis battery bank and treat them as two 12 volt batteries and have it switch back and forth between those two banks then you would need a 12 v charger."

One for the house battery, one for the starting battery, note the use of singular in both cases.

Re; The house (half of this applies to starting as well)

If you have two six volt batteries in series,,, that is ONE 12 volt battery.

(The half):
If you have 2, or more, 12 volt in parallel, that's one 12 volt battery..

In both cases I left the word "Electrically" off the sentence.
