Dolphin charger vs Iota - cost

Hi All, I see people here recommend the Iota marine battery smart chargers, which are under $200 for a 45 amp version. What is so different about a Dolphin that makes it $807 for a 40 amp version?

Both are made for marine environment, both are about 40 amps, both are intelligent staged chargers.

Does the Dolphin have an advantage worth $600 more? Maybe it can charge more than 1 battery or mixed chemistry batteries? Sorry for the basic question but I am having trouble finding these functional details.
