    The charger you linked to is absoulutly fine to leave plugged in 24/7. It will charge and maintain your batteries.

    You want to use a good battery MAINTAINER. A cheap trickle charger just provides a constant current. Smart chargers apply current, discharge surface charges that accumulate on a charging battery, and then re-apply a charging current. Charging a battery to full and allowing it to sit is OK if you use them frequently.

    Best way to keep trolling motor batteries charged

    I've been told leaving batteries on a trickle charger when not in use is the best way to get the longest life and optimum charge out of batteries. I've also been told charging them fully after use is fine too as long as they don't sit more than a month without another charge.

    I have a bass pro shops marine battery charger :

    I use this to charge my 24v system and wondering if leaving it plugged in constantly when not in use is a good idea. I can't see anything specs about this charger maintaining batteries.

    What are everybodys techniques to get the most out of their batteries and is this marine battery charger I have trickle charging if I leave it in?

    Thanks.
