Introduction

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the Commercial Marketplace. I'm a long-time member and contributor to TF. I've worked in the marine industry for over three decades, first as a marine mechanic and electrician, then as a boat yard manager. I've been a consultant for boat buyers, those building boats and the industry for the past 13 years.

Steve,
I need to replace a charger/inverter on my Mainship 400. I thought I would ask you as you may see many more of these than an owner who may install one or two in a lifetime.

I'm looking at Magnum MS2000 and the Mastervolt Combi 12/2000.
Any opinion one way or the other?

It depends a lot on the application, how large is the battery bank, how quickly do you want to recharge it, is it used primarily for dockside maintenance or while at anchor via the genset?

Magnum and MV both make good products, but there are others, (you might consider Victron as well) . Any charger you select should have 'on the battery temperature compensation'. More on chargers here https://stevedmarineconsulting.com/w...ugust-2014.pdf
