Ctek charge controllers

I'd like to hear from folks that have used Ctek brand of battery charge controllers, Battery Chargers - CTEK Battery Chargers . I've looked at the Ctek Smart Pass in combination with Ctek D250S Dual. It appears that this combination may take input from solar panels, tow vehicle alternator and shore power converters to properly maintain any lead acid battery with 4 stage charging. This seems like a good way to charge batteries using a single set of multi-stage rules opposed to potentially conflicting staging rules induced from having multiple charging sources, shore power, solar, alternator, etc. each with there own staging rules, (voltages).

No experience with the models that you are looking at, but I have used a C-Tek charger for several years for the race car. Awesome product.
