Charger Recommendations?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good charger for an Interstate Deep Cycle Battery. It is being used for a 12V Trolling Motor and not sure what to get and how much to spend. Here are some of the specs.

 

BCI Grp#: 24M

 

Type: SRM-24

 

RC Min. 25A: 140

 

Hrs. @ Ampere Load: 5 - 16.4; 15 - 4.6; 25 - 2.3

 

Thanks,

 

Dirk

you want an Intelligent Battery Charger on-board or portable

it should have minimum 5amps, 10 is better, it drops the amps when battery reaches about 85% full to charge the way manufacturers want

 

a dead 100 amp battery at 5amps charge takes 20 hours to charge

the same battery at 3.3 amps takes 30 hours to charge

10 amp charger...10 hours, I like to fish all day and get up in the morning and fish again with a full battery

If you can get the srm-27

 

the 24 class batteries will not last very long the 27 class are far superior, you will be dissapointed with the 24

 

lets put it this way I pull my skeeter around with a 27 class on one battery all day long and I carry 2 in my 12 volt system

 

and dont buy the canadian tire or bass pro on board chargers

 

by a guest charger a little more money but will last your lifetime
