Battery Charger / Maintainer
Some one recommend a battery charge -maintainer for me. I want to plug my battery charger / maintainer into shore power at my marina and comeback a week later to a battery ready to go.
My power needs on my small sailboat are quite modest. (basically, Stereo, VHF, Depth, various Lights, Bilge pump,) All I have now is a single 12V Marine battery. I might move up to two batteries sometime in the future, maybe next summer.
I''ve looked on line at several.... but, there are oh so many to choose from. And, the price range is from somewhere around $35. and on up.
What little I know, is that I think I''d like something that is water proof, won''t boil out the battery (senses when it is charged and then backs off) and doesn''t drain the battery down if the DC power goes off.....and??? ,well, what else should I be looking for?
Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
