    I am going to add a 12 volt receptacle to the Emerger for charging miscellaneous electronics onboard.

    Is there one you guys recommend that hold up pretty well overtime. I hear they are notorious for corroding.

    First time boat owner here so pardon what might seem to be a silly question.

    "marinco" is the brand I've used for years and have good luck with them, you can find them at most marine supply stores. I actually found some at walmart branded under the attwood name

    I have found out something the hard way.

    Take your chargers with you when you are looking and plug them into it. Some of the ones I have bought in the past are too big and I have had to hold the plug in the outlet so it would make contact.
