I'm upgrading to a 4 bank on board charger. Was leaning toward the Minn-Kota MK440D but wanted to see if you guys had any suggestions??

I've had good luck with Dual Pro either 10 or 15 amp banks.

Noco charges. I have two 2 banks. I have heard their 4 banks have had issues but I dont know becuase I don't use a 4 bank. I just did not have enough roon for a big 4 bank. I have had them for 5 years and still going strong..

Good choice, I've had 2 Dual Pro Chargers that failed because they couldn't stand up to the shock on Lake Fork in a 30MPH wind. Went with the Minn Kota charger and it hasn't let me down.

I had a MK 460 PC charger on my last boat, very happy with it. Just don't have enough room for it on my current boat.

The Minn Kota MK-460PC will not only charge your batteries but condition them as well. It also has a temp sensor built in so if your boat is in the garage in the summer and it gets above a certain degree, the charger will cut-off and or will not kick back on when the batteries drop thus keeping the charger from boiling the batteries. The Minn Kota chargers will also charge other type batteries such as AGM, Gel, or Flooded.

I just installed an MK210D on my boat. Only have 2 batteries. everything is working great. Also, Minn Kota is running a rebate right now. Depending on the model you will get $25 or $50 back and you can register the rebate online. Took me less than 5 minutes to do. Shop around for the best price. I ended up getting mine on Amazon for $68 (new). Normal retail was $149.
