Pro Mariner (the American company)

In the other thread (some electrical design questions) I was trying to find the American company that supplies chargers and stuff that is designed By Charles Sterling ( I buy my stuff of Sterling Marine UK)

Well here they are http://www.pmariner.com/productFeature. ... tNum=61230 Seen it at $550 which seems a bit steep in uk I got mine for less than £250

That leads directly to the Equivilent charger I have from Sterling, I can vouch for virtually all the stuff they sell (I have used nearly every item !!!)

Hi Sonet

They are the usual convertor, but you have to buy a seperate IQ Smart controller to get the three stage charging. Or specify the extra unit to be built in. As far as I can tell all switch modes provide clean power.

Just for comparison how much is the 3 Stage 30 Amp (built in) version?

George,
30 Amp is $130. With the Smart Controller $165. I can appreciate your point in getting a quality converter. I am an electronics nut. I also work with huge DC plants at work. 5000 AMP -48V (Telecom) and know how mean DC can be compared to AC.
I like the Iota because it is, with the Smart Controller basically a switch mode rectifier. Also all connections to the battery and load is with 4/0. (I will install a breaker inline)
I am using a industrial AGM VRLA 110 Amp battery. More $ yes, but not having to worry about it crapping out until 7-10 years Priceless.

A good site to explain the difference in battery types and chargers.
