    Can anyone recommend a mains battery charger suitable for leisure batteries?

    looking at paying around £80 - £100 for a good quality charger.
    I have 2 x 113AH gel leisure batteries.

    i replaced my standard charger with one of these.

    i have a 330ah battery bank.

    the 18amp 4 stage version will be more suited to your gel batteries.


    amperor 25 amp 3 stage charger



    you could fit it in the van or use it free standing.

    Hi

    Good suggestion from pappajohn ..

    Another excellent charger is the 20A Sterling Pro Budget, ( scroll down on pappa's link) which can also be used as a 12v 20A power supply..
