Re: Battery Chargers

I have the Magna 4124 inverter-charger. 105 amps DC charging capacity...though that is a bit much for my battery bank. I got the remote control module which lets you program just about any charge profile you wish. I imaging the battery charger only version will have the same charging capabilities. I had no issues with the unit for first 8 months then the charging routine developed a mind of its own. After some phone troubleshooting the tech rep figured out the charging control board had failed and had the unit replaced under warrantee. No issues since.
I got the inverter-charger unit so it could act as a whole house supplier of 230v/50hz AC. Our little 600w inverter is ok to run the ice maker and charge phones but not much else. With the big inverter we don't have to start the genset for short duration high power loads like a shop vac, microwave, toaster.... It wires in at the Amel auto transfer switch and is invisible. If we are not using it I turn it off at the remote control panel.
The remote control is also handy. On the inverter model it can display the internal temperature of key electronic components...especially important if you install the unit in the engine room as I did. (FYI no temperature issues when located in the forward port corner. On Annie this is the area where air is introduced to the engine room.)
I purchased the unit through Marysville Marine distributors.
