I have one Trap.
Works fine to keep things topped off during the week.
They typically don't have huge amp capacity for rapid charging unless you go big bucks.
Mine is only 10 watts (.833 amps).
So if you have a 100ah battery that is half depleted it would take 60 hrs to bring it back fully.
Make sure you get one that has "float" technology so you can keep it plugged in all the time without cooking the battery.
Don't buy a "trickle" charger.

Here is the one I have -

Mac looks like I'd need 2 to do 2 batteries, one per each?  Thinking these would be perfect for the marina.

I use mine to keep my electronics battery charged while Iím on the water, keeps my graph from puttering out before Iím ready to call it a day. Works great but like previously stated I wouldnít use it for a full recharge unless it has a few days between trips.
