Hello , I'm about to renew my house bank and charger , my boat is a Nicholson 44 with 24 v system I plan to use 4 T105 for house bank and 2 12V for starting ,IOTA has one model DSL-27 -40 is a 24 v unit 40 amps . the question is if this charger is a good choice or any other recommendations. Thanks.

Yeah,the Iota is probably a good choice.

Four T-105's in series (225AH @ 24VDC) is probably a bit on the smallish side for a Nicholson 44, unless you're real miserly about electric consumption.

Yeah, I thing anything you can do to build a larger house battery bank would be helpful. T-145's would be an improvement over T-105's, if you have the space for them.

260AH @ 24VDC is equivalent to 520AH @ 12VDC, and that's a pretty workable house size for a CN44, IMHO.
