Anyone use the Schumacher SS-15A3-OB?

Schumacher makes an inexpensive 15A 3-bank charger (model SS-15A3-OB). It charges one bank at a time at up to 15A for a few minutes then moves to the next bank, skipping banks which are disconnected or fully charged.

I have two banks at the moment, but I also have a trolling motor for the dink. I was considering buying this charger and wiring two pairs of leads up to my main batteries and the third pair to some well-protected posts that I could use to run charging cables to the trolling motor from time to time.

I have a 15A breaker for my charging circuit, so this seems like the best option for me, as opposed to a 5/5/5 charger which would take forever to charge my batteries or a 5/5/10 which would require a new breaker.

Does anyone here have any opinions about these chargers?
