Default minn kota on board charger

Question for users.

Can you leave a on board charger conected to the battery, not plug into the wall, when using the battery to operate a motor or fish finder?

If so, do you have to dissconnect the other items when you charge the battery?


May the rod bend, your net be heavy, and the fish swim to another day.

Yes you can leave the charger hooked up to the battery full time without being plugged in to an outlet while using anything needing power on your boat!!! Have fun and good luck!!!
I'm losing my mind, but if I keep the part that tell me when I have to pee I should be OK!

I always unplug the bow mount when not in use including charging. Not sure if that matters.

Think of it no different than your alternator giving a charge and you use electronics when that is happening. As long as things are fused correctly, I can't see having a charge going to your batteries somehow ruining something.

I could be wrong as I'm no expert that is for sure. Especially when it come to bow mount wiring. LOL!
