CHARLES MARINE

5000 SP Series Electronic Chargers with Battery Type Selector Switch

These chargers are the only Marine UL Listed chargers available with modern 3-stage charging and automatic temperature compensation (except for 15A, 12V model), which deliver the greatest charge when the battery is most able to accept it, prevent overcharging and extend battery life. Chargers are ignition protected, so they're safe for engine room installation and they feature virtually no F/EMI interference, are AC/DC fuse protected and meet FCC Class B requirements.

Restore up to three banks simultaneously. Allows selection of charging cycles and voltages for lead acid, AGM or gel batteries. These units also act as a power supply providing constant voltage to DC components such as bilge pumps or DC lighting. Chargers are designed with corrosion resistant components and have a heavy-duty enclosure and heat sink for durability. Convenient design features an easy-to-read DC ammeter, access to terminal connections and fuses and exterior slots for easy mounting.

Comments about 5000 SP Series Electronic Chargers with Battery Type Selector Switch:

I have had this in my boat since 1998 and it's worked perfectly. I had to replace a fuse today, second time ever. It seems to be a great unit based on my experience with the C-Charger 5000 30 AMP

        Comments about 5000 SP Series Electronic Chargers with Battery Type Selector Switch:

        I bought two 5000 series Charles chargers neither ammeter works, so there is no way to know if they are charging. I sent one back and the next one came back with a defective ammeter. No light no switch now no ammeter. These are junk and should not be used on a boat. Charles Co. has offered no help. Three for three are defective. A coincidence? Good luck with this product. Do not buy Charles.
