Yes, it can be used for deep cycle batteries. This charger and others like it with 3 charging modes (bulk charging, adsorption charging, and maintenance charging) are the best to use with deep cycle batteries.

Absolutely. This charger and others like it with 3 charging modes (bulk charging, adsorption charging, and maintenance charging) are the best to use with deep cycle batteries. The unit is totally automatic switching the charging mode all by itself. The only other thing you can do to help keep your battery healthy other than using this charger is to charge your batteries right away after you use them. Leaving them in a discharged state allows sulfate contaminents to foul the plates of the battery and prevent it from being fully charged in the future and lower the output amps when being used. Buy this charger and use it as soon as you get home from the lake. What could be easier.

Yes, it plugs into any wall outlet. It does not require a 3-prong outlet, the unit has only the normal two prongs so it will fit any outlet.

Does this charger have a cooling fan?

I have a good charger but the cooling fan is very loud....pretty much impossible to sleep in the same room when it's on. Does this one also have one and if so is it really loud?

No fan on this one. It has vents for airflow so keep it away from clutter for proper cooling during use.

There is not an actual fan. They do have heat dissipation systems set up so it does not overheat, but not a physical fan that would make noise.

I don't think so......you have to plug the MinnKota charger into an electric outlet, how are you going to do that while on your bassraider???? If you mean can you leave the battery in the boat while you charge it, yes you can.

Hi, the Minn Kota Portable Battery Charger - Model MK110P will charge 12V / 5-cell batteries. Therefore, if your trolling motor is using a 12V battery than it will work together.

The Minn Kota Portable Battery Charger - Model MK110P is not recommended to be run off your boat. You might look for an Alternator Charger to run off your boat.

Never alter AC cord or plug provided – if it will not fit outlet, have proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. Improper connection can result in a risk of an electric shock.

I'm not sure if I fully understand your question, but you likely could (if the fuse is large enough), but it would be a net waste of efficiency (1st law thermodynamics). Why run the engine to power outlets to power a charger to charge the battery when you can go direct off the engine alternator to your battery? Less steps, less waste.

Hope this was helpful
