I'm looking at buying one of two chargers.... The Minn Kota MK330 or the MK330PC. Thoughts concerns experiences etc... I'm only charging two trolling motor batteries and my cranking battery.

I have the 440PC and I really like it. In fact, I purchased the 440D originally but the sucker weighed 20 pounds and was going to be a booger to install inside the battery compartment. I spent another $50, saved 10 pounds and got the PC. Super easy to use. I would recommend the PC hands down.

That's one of the biggest reasons, the MK330PC weighs 8 pounds plus it's small size and warranty.

It depends if you are running AGM batteries. More current is better so the 345 is better. Enersys recommends that if you are using AGM for deep cycle to charge batteries at 40% of RC of the batteries in that case you need to parallel 2 battery chargers. I am making a second charger portable so that I can set it on the back deck and use clamps instead installing a second charger.

I picked up a 460PC this summer after several recommendations from fishing buddies and the forum. I’ve been pleased so far. It’s slimmer than my old dual pro so I can mount it on a wall in the battery compartment and free up some space. I like the fact you can program the battery type quickly. Coach
