My dual pro pro charger is original to my 2004 Skeeter and it works perfectly.

I've got a 20i, too, and my charger is a MinnKota Precision MK460PC. The best there is!

I just recently upgraded my 3 bank charger so I did a lot of research and went with the MinnKota. My second choice would have been the Dual Pro. As a bonus MinnKota had a rebate on their units at the time I was looking for one.

One final tidbit...spoke with MinnKota tech support and they said it is not necessary or advisable to leave the unit plugged in 24/7. Charge your batteries as soon as possible after use. When charging is complete, unplug the unit.

Must be a difference between them and DualPro. DualPro has a maintainer mode for use during storage. Hard for it to maintain(condition) a battery if it ain't plugged in to the wall.

My understanding was that the MK460PC would maintain, however it has a timer that shuts it off after about 24 hrs. I don't know if it's true or not, that's just what I was told.

I was going to look at the one that power Pole has coming out. It is suppose to charge all batteries and then when running your motor, when your cranking battery is full it will start using the motor to charge the other batteries

This is what I was told by an independent trolling motor shop.
