I have been reading this forum for a while and did a search but I do not see much on which battery charger is good to use with my generator to charge my batteries.
Which charger do you think is best?

    The answer of course depends to a great extent on what battery (ies) you have, how many you have and how you use them.

    Re: which battery charger?

    I prefer a solar generator (PV panels), but what I will end up using is a Frankenstein arrangement of 2 manual start generators:

    1) Honeywell 2000 inverter type into a Iota 48V, 15A battery charger

    2) Lister type 6/1 engine, 3KW gen, into the XW6048 internal charger
