Noco Genius Gen2 20 Amp 2-bank Waterproof Smart On-board Battery Charger (3005.9016) 1707

Review for noco gen2 waterproof battery charger

Price was $159.95. As A Charger It Gets The Job Done And Floats My Sla At An Appropriate Voltage After Bulk Charging. No Concerns With Its Ability To Charge. My Issue Is That This Device Fails Miserably To Comply With Part 15 Per The Fcc Guidelines. This Device Using A Switching Power Supply Is Absolutely Filthy Emitting Rf Crud From 100 Khz Through 140 Mhz. This Device Causes Interference On 160 80 And 40 Meters And Completely Wipes Out 20 15 And 10 Meters. Birdies Galore Up On 2 Meters. There Is No Way In Hell This Thing Should Be Allowed To Be Sold In The Us. I Gladly Would Have Paid The Extra $3 For Them To Build In Sufficient Filters But Noco Had To Cheap Out. If You're Looking To Use This For A Battery Application Where It Will Be Used In An Rf Environment Look Elsewhere.

Needed a charger for my new boat that has two batteries. The boat will stay in the water all winter and have had more than my share of dead battery problems. Have used a noco's charger to maintain my car battery over the winter months and never had a problem. Bought this one and it installed easily. Charges both batteries and has worked great so far. Very happy with the appearence, ease of installation and reliability of this unit.

This was not my first purchase of this item. I had two previously and have used them for multiple purposes. Right now my latest purchase of this item is serving as the auxiliary battery in my camper van, charged by either the vehicle's alternator (with a sweet isolator setup so my starter battery doesn't ever drain from various camper component draw, and also the aux battery charges via alternator while the engine is running). I also have this battery connected to a solar charging system in my camper van, and it performs fantastically. I have actually purchased a second bluetop to provide more power in my vehicle while i'm camped and running various lights, devices chargers, and other electrical components without the engine running. . No question, optima is not messing around. They make incredible batteries that absolutely live up to the claims made on their website. They even provide instructions on how to restore a "dead" battery after years of use and extreme discharge. That says a lot. . Bottom line: you get what you pay for! -Notice from H. Meyer, Leicester

These are great but pricey. I replaced my boats 2 batteries and along with some fresh cables and a connection for a solar charger with these. They're raw voltage stays in the high 13's and i'm reading 14. 3 when the engine is running. Certainly starts the boat right up. No need to worry about acid spills and corrosion (i sprayed the finished connections/posts with a couple of heavy coats of boeshield). Running the tilt/trip to raise or lower the engine when it's off doesn't even show a voltage loss. Anyway, plenty of power, rated for deep cycle and starting.

- F. WandaSmaller overall dimensions compared to other rv batteries. This is great for older campers with very small battery compartments. Was packaged very well. High quality for the price.

I bought two of these batteries for my 24vdc trolling motor, not sure if i bought a great trolling motor or if these batteries just make it work really good. I have a 26' triton with a minn kota powerdrive v2 trolling motor and i can go two full days and still have juice left over. Whenever i replace a battery in my cars trucks or boats i replace them with an optima battery, i've always had good performance with them.

Used this to float charge a gas backup generator (push start is only as reliable as the battery that cranks it over) only gripe would be that the led indicator blinks a little too frequently - on smaller batteries this will eventually begin to take its toll when untethered from shore power. -Notice from V.

The quality of their products is above and beyond any i've seen out there that is within my budget. They make their products robust and i really like the design and how they thought so many things through. . 100% recommended!

I installed this on a honda 3000 watt generator which has a battery for electric start. The battery would routinely go dead and i usually had to start it by hand pull. The main problem was i would forget to charge the battery on a schedule. I replaced the battery after 6 years and decided to install this to help remind me to charge the battery. . I connected it to the battery and wired it so the battery indicator is on the front panel of the generator. Now when i walk by it i can see it flashing green, yellow, red. When it flashes yellow i connect it to the charger. Now every time i walk by it i check to see the color of the flash. Great way to remind you to charge the battery.

I just received my noco g111 battery tender today plus i ordered this 12 volt plug connector as an add on. . So far the tender is working fine. This device should make the tender much easier to use. I say that because with this connector i will not have to raise the hood of my truck and connect to the battery to make the tender work. . Out of the box i saw nothing wrong with this device that would prevent it from working. No frayed insulation or anything like that. It's heavy for it's size which tells me that they used a heavy gauge wire in this and that's a good thing to me. It tells me it was not chaply made. There is no reason that this should not work. . If by some weird twist of fate happens (which sometimes does to me) that this does not work i'll come back here to edit and update my review. I am testing my tender for the next few days. If you don't see an update no news is good news here.

The F.A.Q. for Noco Genius Gen2 20 Amp 2-bank Waterproof Smart On-board Battery Charger (3005.9016)

Purchased to charge my starting and deep cycle batteries on my j16 carolina skiff. Very compact and worry free. I liked the fact that i can keep it on the boat tucked under the center console as it is waterproof. Very easy to use and hook up. Now when i come home all i have to do is plug it into the wall. You keep it plugged in at all times and it keeps a trickle charge on the batteries to keep them in great condition. I love this charger. Well worth the $100. When you have a battery that costs $200 it is well worth taking care of.

A number of questions have been asked here.

Q&A

(0) Question: where is the charger getting power from does it have to be plugged in?


(1) Question: will leaving a battery connected without ac power running damage the charger?


(2) Question: can the gen 1 10 amp charger be left permanently attached to a marine battery even when the battery is in use and being charged by an alternator?


(3) Question: there was no warrenty info sent with the noco 4 amp onboard charger, contacted noco 'no response'.


(4) Question: can all 4 batterys be chaged if thay are still hooked up together.

(6) Question: i would be using this with two marine deep cycle batteries to power a 68lb thrust 24 volt trolling motor. would you suggest the 2 bank 8amp or 20amp?


(7) Question: what is the maximum charging voltage on these noco chargers? i want to keep it under 15v if possible for my agm batteries.

Answer:

Click the marked text to copy link to Clipboard

I honestly don't get what people are so worked up about over this unit and saying they're disappointed in it. I love it! i have a 30' baja outlaw with twin 5. 7l engines, running a 4 bank of deep cycle marine batteries for the engines and other things on board. I have this charger securely mounted in my engine bay, and i ran the power cord into my cockpit area for easy plug in accessability. First thing, this unit is heavy! quality components are rare to come by these days, and this unit far exceeded my expectations. Yes, this unit only checks the integrity of your batteries once every 24 hours. That's after it fully charges your batteries! why would you need it to check more often than that? if it's in charging mode, there are indicator lights for each battery and it's status. As each battery charges up to 100%, the light goes green. Only then does it go into maintenance mode, where it checks it once a day. Unless you just leave your charger plugged in 24 hours a day, how often does it need to do a maintenance check? i quite often bring my boat to the house on thursday or friday, plug it in overnight, saturday morning it's ready to go with all 4 batteries in the green, and we go for the weekend. When you store your boat for the winter, most people don't leave their batteries in the boat anyway, so pull them out and put them on a battery tender or similar in your garage to store them out of season and keep them fresh. That's just my opinion, but i don't understand people complaining about the daily check. Then you'd hear them complaining that it draws too much power and their electric bill was too high! . . Bottom line, purchase this charger, or any noco genius charger, with confidence that it will keep your batteries maintained and fresh.

Best noco genius gen2 20 amp 2-bank waterproof smart on-board battery charger (3005.9016) in review

Great on board charger! i have wanted one for a while. Finally broke down and got one. So nice, weather proof, smart charger much better than my automotive charger. Was slightly larger than i thought. Not a problem, feels like very durable construction.

While I Haven't Had It Very Long I Am Happy With The General Appearance Of The Material Used In The Manufacture The Size And The Connection Cables. It Works As It Should As Of This Time And Is Simple To Install. The Different Manufacturer Unit I Had Before (from 20 Years Ago) Was Rough On Batteries If Left On For Long Periods Of Time And I Would Only Plug It In Just Before A Trip And That Worked Fine But Is A Pain. I Talked To A Lot Of People Before I Bought It And Looked At A Lot Of Reviews And It Scored High For Price And Function And Everyone Claims That It Will Not Harm Batteries If Left Plugged In. Only Time Will Tell But I Don't Doubt That Newer Technology Probably Is A Lot Better.

Awesome charger. . I have 2 of them on my boat, a 2 bank 20amp charging my optima bluetop d31 engine batteries, and a 1 bank 10amp charging my 200ah agm house battery. I have them permanently wired to the individual battery circuits, and on a separate ac breaker which runs off my shorepower block. After a few days at sea, using the winches, accessories etc i get back to port with my batteries fairly drained, these chargers always have them back to 'green' for the next day. I compared the specifications of this smart charger and called optima and universal battery to make sure their float charge specs as well as rapid charge specs match and they do. . The overall construction and form factor of the charger is excellent. Durable connections and strong case, very glad i went with this unit and plan to upgrade my 10a single bank to another 20a dual bank when i add another 200ah ub4d battery. Highly recommended.

K. Cassella, Oklahoma says

I Purchased This Charger About A Month Ago. It Worked For About Four Days After Being Correctly Installed In A Dry Boat In A Warm Freshwater Environment. It Gave No Warning Of Failure No Smoke Or Odd Lights Or Heat. Just Quit Working Completely. Absolute Garbage.

This Will Fix Problems In Your Battery's Charge. I Had Wired 2 Batteries In With A Switch And Used To Charge The Batteries By Turning The Switch To Parallel And Hooking The Charger To One Battery (basically Like Hooking Positive To Positive Negative To Negative On The Terminal). That Worked Decently Well But I Knew It Wasn't Ideal. This Charger Charged One Battery In About 2 Hours Using The Smart Technology And The Other In About 4 Days (on The First Charge After Hooking It Up). Now After A Day Of Boating I Plug It In And The Next Day I'm Good To Go. In Short I Love That It Has Smart Charging And Works Well. No Problems

Second One Ive Bought So Far And Im In Love. Noco Is The Best Of The Best. Keeps My Xj Charged And Ready To Go At A Moments Notice. This One Was Bought For My 96 Ram Which Is Not My Daily Driver. The Only Problem I Have Had With It Is It Will Set My Alarm Off After A Little While Of It Being Plugged It. It Makes The Alarm Think The Shock Sensors Are Being Triggered. Not Sure Why But It Still Gets The Job Done. In The Process Of Switching All My Battery Charging Needs To Noco. I Highly Recommend You Get A Extension Cord Adapter So All You Need To Do Is Walk Up The Vehicle And Plug The Female End Of An Extension Cord In And You're All Set. No Need To Open The Hood At All! Just Make Sure You Mount It In A Place That You Wont Forget To Un Plug It When You Go To Drive Off. (ex. My Ram Is On The Rear Bumper And The Xj Is Mounted On The Front Fender.

I installed this on a 2015 everglades 230cc to charge my 2 optima blue tops on separate banks. One starting battery on a bank and one deep cycle battery on a separate bank. You will read others trying to charge 4 or more batteries with this item calling a "bank" more than one battery wired in series or parallel, which is a traditional definition of a "battery bank". Noco designed these to charge one battery per "bank". A "bank" being one battery per noco definition. I know. Confusing. If you have 4 batteries on what you consider a traditional "2 bank" set-up, then spring for the "noco 4 bank" charger as they consider a "bank" one battery! . I did a great deal of research on this item and chose this over any other "trickle-charger", even over the optima one. It is very easy to install and can be installed in any manner as far as upside down, right side up, whatever, so you have options. It came packaged well with all the instructions. I suggest buying the noco power port receptacle that installs on the interior of the boat to assist with the ease of connecting the power cord from your home or dock to this unit. It sells separately for about $16. Other than that all you need is simple tools and some zip ties.

I Honestly Don't Get What People Are So Worked Up About Over This Unit And Saying They're Disappointed In It. I Love It! I Have A 30' Baja Outlaw With Twin 5. 7l Engines Running A 4 Bank Of Deep Cycle Marine Batteries For The Engines And Other Things On Board. I Have This Charger Securely Mounted In My Engine Bay And I Ran The Power Cord Into My Cockpit Area For Easy Plug In Accessability. First Thing This Unit Is Heavy! Quality Components Are Rare To Come By These Days And This Unit Far Exceeded My Expectations. Yes This Unit Only Checks The Integrity Of Your Batteries Once Every 24 Hours. That's After It Fully Charges Your Batteries! Why Would You Need It To Check More Often Than That If It's In Charging Mode There Are Indicator Lights For Each Battery And It's Status. As Each Battery Charges Up To 100% The Light Goes Green. Only Then Does It Go Into Maintenance Mode Where It Checks It Once A Day. Unless You Just Leave Your Charger Plugged In 24 Hours A Day How Often Does It Need To Do A Maintenance Check I Quite Often Bring My Boat To The House On Thursday Or Friday Plug It In Overnight Saturday Morning It's Ready To Go With All 4 Batteries In The Green And We Go For The Weekend. When You Store Your Boat For The Winter Most People Don't Leave Their Batteries In The Boat Anyway So Pull Them Out And Put Them On A Battery Tender Or Similar In Your Garage To Store Them Out Of Season And Keep Them Fresh. That's Just My Opinion But I Don't Understand People Complaining About The Daily Check. Then You'd Hear Them Complaining That It Draws Too Much Power And Their Electric Bill Was Too High! Bottom Line Purchase This Charger Or Any Noco Genius Charger With Confidence That It Will Keep Your Batteries Maintained And Fresh.

Installed it on my 18 ft center console in the compartment my batteries are stored in. Took about an hour to install. I did swap the included screws for my own stainless steel screws but that is just my personal change in installing the unit. I mounted the unit on a piece of starboard and then mounted the starboard to the compartment. Made installation much easier for me. Hooked the unit up to my aging, hard starting batteries for 24 hours. Both batteries were charged up and started my 115 4 stroke without a problem. I plug it in once a month to maintain them while the boat is in the water. When they come out for the winter i'll be buying another unit to maintain them. I highly recommend this charger as it actually reconditioned my one older battery that i was going to replace this season.

U. Alberta, Sutton says

Installation was quick and easy. I use this on my 26' searay to keep both my starting and deep cycle batteries charged. Works excellent in that capacity. I did have to extend one set of leads to reach around to one battery but did so with some 12 gauge wire and solder less connectors followed by a generous taping with electrical tape and it works fine. One note. This charger does not like extension cords. Not even short, air conditioning type cords. If you try to use an extension cord, the unit will turn off almost immediately, so make sure you can mount it where you can plug it directly into an a/c outlet.
