Re: Battery charger - small, medium, or large?

Chuck,

Thanks for the reply, but it's not for me. :)

I was just talking about the merits of the size/cost of chargers in real life usage. I have 300 Ah on our 27 foot Nor'Sea and have cruised...

Re: Battery charger - small, medium, or large?

Why not get a Sextant by Davis? You can get the "basic" plastic one for $60.00. Play with it to learn and have fun.
