Minn Kota® Debuts New Portable Digital Battery Chargers at ICAST
technology to optimize charging and extend battery life
RACINE, Wis., July 12, 2017 – Getting the most from expensive marine batteries requires optimal charging, which is something Minn Kota® has perfected for years with their digital on-board charging technology. Now that digital advantage is available in two convenient, portable, single-bank battery chargers.
The new portable digital chargers have a built-in digital microprocessor that is the “brain” behind their performance. Among other things, the microprocessor facilitates automatic temperature compensation. High and low outside temperatures can greatly affect a battery’s ability to take a charge, often resulting in under- or over-charging which can damage expensive marine batteries. Minn Kota’s Portable Digital Chargers sense the outside temperature and automatically adjust the charge profile. This self-regulation ensures a faster, more precise charge every time. The benefits to anglers are extended battery life, maximum power for cranking and improved cycle life for marine electronics.
Minn Kota Portable Digital Chargers also recognize when the battery has achieved full power, and shut off automatically when the charge is complete. The new models deliver 5 or 10 AMPS of total output and work perfectly on flooded/wet-cell, maintenance-free, and AGM batteries. Anglers will appreciate the portable chargers’ light weight, generous carry handle and ease-of-use on all their on-the-go fishing adventures.
The 5 AMP MK-105PD will retail for $59.99 and the 10 AMP MK-110PD will retail for $84.99. For more information visit MinnKotaMotors.com.
