I bought this one around Christmas. It has been great and I run pretty much all Minn kota and Humminbird electronics so it keeps everything covered if there is a power surge since I never unplug any of my electronics. The 10 amp is plenty for an overnight charge as well.

had triple procharger since 1998......never a problem....back in mid 90's I had triple pro charger on my boat and one of the banks went out 3 days before I was leaving to go to mexico...called triple pro and they overnighted me a new charger and told me just send old one back when you get back from your trip...and they paid for shipping costs both ways....

My boat has a dual bank charger made by Charging Systems International. It is 17 years old and still working. I called them last month and they verified the date by the serial number. He stated that all of their chargers, except one, is still made in the USA. http://www.dualpro.com/

I'll second Hodges Marine, cheapest price also faster than quoted arrival date, AND a follow up call to make sure all was well.

I've heard some good feedback on NOCO chargers.

I would not recommend that charger. I've got the next step up of that series and already lost a bank, my last one went out twice as well on my previous boat. I know that a lot of guys are having to get these chargers replaced in their new Skeeters. It's an issue. I'm replacing with a Noco Genious charger even though my Minn Kota is still under warranty. I dont like the hassle of having to swap out these chargers every year year or so even though it doesn't cost me anything but labor. It will go down one day when I most need it.

Another vote for dual pro. I had a MK and it screwed up, and ended up zapping my batteries. I guess the float feature went out. MK told me since I was a year out of warranty to just throw it away, they cant repair them. Which sucks since they are so expensive...
