The Minn Kota Digital Linear Onboard Charger features digital control, 2x faster charge times, enchanced status codes, advanced maintenance mode, multi-stage charging, and automatic temperature control. In addition, this marine battery charger features waterproof, shock- and vibration-resistant aluminum construction; saltwater-tested and fully corrosion-resistant; short circuit, reverse polarity, and ignition protected; and for use with 12V/6-cell batteries (50–130 amp hour rating). Dimensions: 12.5'' x 7.5'' x 4''.
Microprocessor design protects your batteries so you can stay on the water longer. It monitors temperature and state of charge to create a faster, regulated, more precise charge.
2X Faster Charge Times
Up to 2X faster charge times in high heat conditions.
Enhanced Status Codes
Provides comprehensive feedback on charge stage, maintenance mode status, error notification and full charge.
Advanced Maintenance Mode
To prevent damage to the battery during long-term storage, the new on-board chargers feature an enhanced maintenance mode that automatically shuts off 24 hours after the battery is fully charged. The charger continually monitors battery voltage and will automatically turn back on to maintain full charge.
Ensures a full charge while at the same time preventing overcharging, which can damage and shorten the life of a battery. This technology automatically controls current and voltage over three charging stages: bulk, absorption, and maintenance.
Automatic Temperature Compensation
Constantly adjusts output voltage based on ambient temperature. This optimizes the battery gassing threshold to allow the battery to efficiently reach a full charge in any conditions. This feature also protects the battery from boiling due to overcharging at higher temperatures.

Per the manufacturer, "For a flooded lead acid battery, there are many factors that contribute to its life span. The more the battery is drained and charged, the shorter its life, on average. The biggest factor shortening a battery's life is not charging it after every use. The key is to top them off with a charge after a day fishing. Also, make certain the battery has the proper fluid levels in each cell.
Our digital battery chargers do an excellent job of maintaining the life of the batteries. Our new precision chargers are a step up from the digital charger because of their line voltage compensation, mild equalize & deep equalize modes, plus you can charge AGM, Flooded, or Gel batteries. The digital chargers only charge Flooded and AGM batteries.
Typically, you should get 3 years out of your batteries if properly maintained and charged. I have heard some guys get 4 years life."
