    Comments about West Marine Automatic Portable Battery Charger, 40A with Engine Start:

    Charger works great, the price is good.
    I tested the connections with my multi-meter and the charging side is isolated from the AC side like it should be on a marine charger.
    The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is the instrutions insist you disconect the battery from the boat before charging? So you can't just plug in your boat and forget it.
