    The Centaur is a totally different charger, when I got mine it was the bluesmart and was identical to look at with or without Bluetooth.

    What sort of demand do you have on yours? the centaur looks more industrial with a significantly higher price tag and I dont want to be in the same position in a few years time if i go for the cheaper bluesmart option
    On the other hand it wont get heavily used so I dont want to waste money by overspecing it

    It is worth noting that the battery charger will not work if the batteries are below 10V. The charger itself needs power from the batteries for its electrickery wizardry stuff. Just plugging it into the mains will not work if the batteries are discharged too far.
    My boat is for sale - ask me if interested.

    I have just upgraded to 720A/h batteries, and use a new Mastervolt 25A/h charger which works perfectly.

    The 35A/h version will easily do what you require...
