I wanted to get a few opinions.

I have a 3 bank charger that just went out on me. I wanted to hear from a few of you as too which brand would be best as far as charging ability, longevity, durability, best for the money? I see some of these can get up to $300 bucks I was thinking $100-150. Plan on getting on in the next few days, any advice would be helpful?

Well I'm a believer in you get what you pay for. $300 is about right for a good quality brand. I've had 2 dual pro chargers in my boat since I bought it and when the second one went out I decided to give the Minn Kota charger a shot. Bought it from Low Cost Boating Store on a Thursday morning and it shipped that day and was on my doorstep on Friday.

The 5 amp per bank is a bit more in line with what you want to spend.

I heard a lot of good comments about NOCO chargers.

I'm on my second dual pro. The first one was my fault. I didn't secure it REALLY well and it shook the epoxy loose and allowed water inside. They warrantied it and the second one is mounted much better and has been working great at charging three grp31 bluetops.

That said, I install MinnKota chargers into the hot rods I build at work. I like how the plug fits the optional "socket" mount.

My first Dual Pro developed a short and kept tripping the ground fault to the shop. The second one lost all of the leds in the light bar from a couple of trips to Fork in 25-30 mph skipping waves. So decided to put the MK 3 bank on to charge all three at one time.

Noco Genius--My Duel Pro had a bank go out so I replaced it with a Noco Gen 3 ($289). I've had 0 issues with it in the 5 years I've had it!

There's a guy on The Hull Truth (chargerman) I think, that sells reconditioned chargers for about half the original price. I bought one from him three years ago and it's still working great.
