NOCO Genius 12v 24v 36v 30 Amp On-Board 3 Bank Marine Charger GEN3
Product Description

The NOCO Genius GEN3 charger is an 8 step, fully automatic 3 bank switch-mode battery charger, which automatically determines the condition of your batteries before beginning its charge cycle. It will only charge when the batteries need it, and will fully maintain your battery when it is in storage or between uses. All of the Genius line of battery chargers are programmed for optimal battery charging and maintenance, with proprietary Rapid Charging Technology(RCT). The smart microprocessor and advanced high frequency design will charge batteries twice as fast as a conventional transformer based marine charger, while always preventing overcharge. This assures you of maximum battery life and less downtime. Genius chargers also utilitize Variable Input Compensation, which means that your charger will work as it should, delivering its full, correct voltage and amperage, whether or not long extension cords or low AC power are used.

   Norco Genius 3 Bank Charger Gen3
By on Aug 16, 2013, Ownership: Use regularly, Knowledge Level: Genius is my way of life
(86 of 160 customers found this review helpful)

Pros: Easy to use, just plug it in and walk away. Fast charging. Reliable. Compact size, doesnt take up too much space. Norco is by far the best onboard charger I have ever owned

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I run a Minn Kota 101 I-Pilot powered by 3 Trojan group 31 batteries. I use this to troll for walleye on Lake Erie puttting in sometimes 8 to 10 hours of trolling in a day. The Norco Gen3 charger brings battery levels back to 100% over nite ready to do it again the next morning. I have a Norco Gen2 on my other boat, also with the Trojan batteries for three years now with the same great performance.
