Power-Pole CHARGE Marine Power Management Station
The Power-Pole Charge Marine Power Management Station is a 500W power station that is designed to replace all others. Power-Pole's unique technology combines the effect of three different devices, providing you with ultimate capability. This single unit acts as a standard battery charger, a charge-on-the-run, and an emergency start system. Easily controlled by the C-Monster app, you can see your battery life in real-time and prioritize whether you want your trolling or cranking batteries to recharge first. This unit will automatically move power between the two batteries, and charges on the run from the alternator while the motor is running. Having the ability to work with any battery type provides all boaters with the option to use this unique power station. Delivering up to 40 amps of power to your cranking battery and up to 25 amps of power to your trolling battery, this will quickly become a staple in many boats.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What battery types is the CHARGE compatible with?

Remember, it is not a power source. It can only charge via AC power or the alternator when running your motor.
Can I change the minimum battery setting?
Yes. However, the CHARGE is already set at optimum minimum battery settings.
Is the CHARGE waterproof?
Yes, however, we strongly recommend mounting your CHARGE in a dry area.

How many amps does the unit deliver to each battery?

How long will it take to charge my batteries?
