24 volt battery chargers

vtmapsvtmaps Solar Expert Posts: 3,738 ✭✭✭✭
I am researching 24 volt battery chargers (30-40 amps). I was leaning toward the Iota, but I just found out that Xantrex has expanded their Truecharge2 line of battery chargers to include 24 volt versions.

Our host carries the Xantrex line, but does not appear to carry their battery chargers. Does anyone have knowledge (or opinion) about these chargers? How do they stack up against the Iota charger?

thanks for your replies, vtMaps

    I have a 12 v version, solid. Also look for a thread about using a Honda eu2000 for charging, there are a couple of others mentioned there,http://forum.solar-electric.com/showthread.php?t=10123

    if memory serves me rightly, and it sometimes doesn't, i believe naws had trouble in acquiring them from xantrex and were severely backordered and naws had to drop them for that reason. maybe recheck with naws as schneider has now fully taken over xantrex since then and maybe schneider has not screwed up this aspect of the business.
