Default Onboard battery charger

Hi guys I'm looking for a onboard battery charger for my 2015 30 seahunt gamefish, it's a 3 bank charger, not looking to break the bank, just want to be able to charge them over the winter while she is dry docked, been looking at the pro mariner prosport 20 but hear mixed reviews, anyone with experience with this unit or any other in the same price range would be appreciated, thanks in advance

I have had a 3 bank Powermania since April. Amazing fast recharge to my AGM batteries. I notice a lot of premium, high-dollar boat builders are using Powermania, yet they are reasonably priced!

Powermania are top notch chargers. I would talk with Brian at International Marine Service, he can make sure you get the right size charger for your batteries and a great price for it as well.

Powermania is really good.

Charger Guy is not longer doing any chargers. He was a greta asset to the forums but has now retired.

Hello. The Pro Mariner and Sterling chargers are pretty good, good value, just remember to size the charger appropriately, minium 10% output for size of battery bank being charged, so 200Ah battery bank, minimum 20A charger, also choose one of the smart cahrgers, so they don´t divide their charge equally, they can charge the most discharged and maintain the others, also they allow you to select the most appropriate charge profile, AGM, lead acid, gel etc. Hope this helps.

We sell the entire Pro Mariner line. I just like the Powermainia product better.


Here are the Pro Mariner:
