What On-board chargers are y'all having good luck with?


I have two Minn-Kota Digital MK330D go out on me, both just a few months after the warranty run out.  So I am staying away from them.

My best luck has been with Dual Pro.  I have a Noco now but it had to be replaced before a year.

I hope your MKs were the exception rather than the rule.  I recently added a single bank 10 amp to charge my electronics batteries.

Sorry to hear your bad luck. Been running a MK PC345 last five years - no complaints here but I understand your position.

I had previously run 2 Guest units. First one was a 2 bank which lost one side and was out of warranty. Guest offered me a deal on upgrade and I went with a 3 bank which lasted me 12 years thereabout before lost the crankin bank (lower power- 3 amp). I limped along using a auto charger on the cranker until I finished researching and went with the 345 because Guest had retooled and wasn't sure how they currently stacked up - think they had changed hands or names.

Good luck researching and better luck in your charging future.  o/

I have a Dual Pro 3 Bank that came with my boat. It's 13 years old with no hiccups at all.

I also had a Dual Pro in my previous boat that I also never had any problems with. I will not buy another brand, based on the fact that I have had absolutely ZERO problems with either of mine.
