Battery charger

Charles 5000 SP Series Marine 100 amp 3 bank battery charger. Very lightly used, looks new. I had it in my cruising motor boat for 2.5 yrs then removed it before selling it. So it includes everything needed to connect this to your 3 battery bank DC electrical System.
Includes:
Charles 5000 SP Series Marine 100 amp charger
3 Blue Seas Fuse Mounts with 125 amp fuses
3 27" 2 AWG red cables with ring ends. Used to connect fuses to each battery
3 13 foot #2 AWG red cables with ring ends. Used to connect battery charger to fuses.
1 14 foot #2 AWG black cable with ring end. Used to connect battery charger to negative ground, usually the engine.
1 19 foot Marine grade #12 AWG power line used to connect AC power from circuit breaker to battery charger.
1 20 amp AC circuit breaker.
Just the charger sells for $1399 new on Amazon


$800 + Shipping


PM me for additional info.

OK, how about $700 + shipping and I'll throw in a almost new 25' 30 amp shore power cord and a Marinco 15 amp to 30 amp adapter, also almost new.

OMG that is one heck of a deal. If I didn't just install a charles 5000 80 amp unit I would grad this up. Don't go any cheaper, it will sell. Any cheaper and I going to start crying.

I thought it would be grabbed up quickly at the original price. For several years I used the OEM 30 amp charger that came with the boat and after cruises to the Bahamas and the Keys it was obvious that charger was inadequate. I'm sure many other boats come equipped with small chargers, so here's an opportunity to upgrade that small charger that will reduce generator run times and make your charging system far more robust.

This Charles charger is made by one of the most respected battery charger companies in the marine industry, is a smart charger 3 banks, with 3 modes of charging and can be adjusted for AGM, Gel Cell or Lead Acid batteries.
It comes with everything shown. I think the Blue Seas fuses, one for each bank, cost about $35 ea.

I'm sure it will sell, this just might not be the right time. I'll try again in a couple of months.

Sorry for the delayed response. I was visiting grandkids in N.M. over Xmas and I messed with the security settings on my laptop and that somehow prevented me from logging on to Trawler forum.
Anyway I'm responding to Al via PM.
If he doesn't want it I'll be back.
And for Dave Baker, yes it's still for sale, someone responded to the original msg almost 2 yrs ago.

Thanks for the PM, Tim. I found the specs online listing the AC input current as 20A.

Unfortunately, this is too high for my 'lil Honda generator so I'll have to pass, begrudgingly. Someone's going to get a great charger at a great deal.

In case you are not aware, some chargers (not sure about a Charles) can be set to limit the input or output amperage. Either should make it compatible with your generator.

Is the charger still for sale? It's difficult to tell from the threads. Thank you.
