    Okay, So I purchased and installed a rectifier for a 2 stroke 40hp outboard. Got it all hooked up and the voltometer reads that IS charging the battery. My question, not sure if this has been proved or not, but do i need anything else to have my outboard charge the battery(thinking regulator???) or is it good to go?

    I dont want to ruin the battery.

    My battery is a Dekka AGM 27 group and powers (at any given time) a CMC 35, Lenco Trim Tabs, 300 watt Pyle sterio, 55# trolling motor, GPS Garmin 441s, VHF radio, nav lights, stern light, bilge pump, and a livewell.

    I am also reliogous about charging my battery at home before and after each trip, but sometimes on 2-4 day ventures it simply isnt enough to last, hence the rectifier.



    Thanks!

    Depends on the model/horsepower of outboard and the output amperage.
