Re: Deep cycle bat charger

Maine Sail: In a earlier post you recommended a ProMarine ProNautic "P' 40 amp battery charger. I've seen these chargers advertised for sale on the "net" for around $380. Is this a good price? Secondly, the same company's 50 amp charger is approx. the same price but the one on sale failed to have the "P' designation. What is the significance of the "P" designation? Thank you.

What is .5 volts between friends ?
