    Well, original grady white charger lasted 15 years and Promariner prosport 20 lasted 2 years. Thinking about going with the Genius. Anybody running one of those?

    I would run Run a Pro Charging Systems PS2, 3 or 4 depending on how many batteries you have. They do the job well and last a long time.

    I use a Genius single bank and have nothing but positive things to say about it. I use it on a AGM for a Minn Kota. Charges Fast, doesnt overheat. Safe to leave unattended. Battery maintenance modes, and waterproof.

    I have a half dozen genius charger/maintainers. I use them on everything from quads and dirt bikes to my Duckworth and Toy hauler.

    Not waterproof Dick. Good for your garage but not for boats and for maintenance of batteries installed in boats

    Minn Kota, CTek, and or I got a charger for YOU. Free 3 bank waterproof sealed one. Came off of a Defiance boat.

    Josh, headed to Norm's tomorrow night.

    You pay for these but they are made in USA, going to last longer than the Genius units.

    I was only joking Goat

    I transferred my Minn Kota 4 bank charger to Dave Johnson at Norm's Christmas Party. Josh has it or soon will..Free. someone gave it to me so I passed on the deal.

    Yes I'm a hoarder but I will give stuff away. I just can't throw shit away that someone can use.

    Will not Hijack this thread, but it's all good, some tweaks to a new model for them. The process has been very educational and the Service manager at Tom and Jerry's is a fucking Superstar!!!

    I have 2 NOCO Genius’s in my boat. One in the bow compartment for the two trolling motor batteries and one in the stern for the house and crank battery. Plug and walk away.. zero issues.

    I have the Noco Genius on my boat too - charging the house and start batteries. Just realized after reading up on it on the Blue Seas site that I need to install a relay to automatically shut down the Blue Seas ACR when the charger is plugged into shore power.

    I have the dual battery NOCO Genius hooked up to my 220 OP dual AGM batteries. So far they are warm and ready to go every time I head for the water. I did not mount inside the transom yet since I am going to put my ocean pro up for sale so i can find a trailer able offshore rig with a cudy and standup head. (wife demands) it will cost her more boat and amenities translated to more money and fun for me. Haha it only took her a couple years to come around to my way of thinking. Bottom line is I like the Genius so much I am keeping it for the next boat.

    yes. It will activate the relays to isolate the batteries so that each one can be tended individually. at least that's how I hooked up my blue seas charger.
