Using NOCO 2 Bank Charger With Parallel Batteries in Truck  


Can two bank units be used in 2 battery diesel pickup parallel systems without isolating /disconnecting the batteries?


Expert Reply:

Yes, you can use the NOCO GEN On-Board Battery Charger # NOC34FR on your pickup's parallel batteries without disconnecting them. If your batteries were in a series, they would have to be disconnected. Since your batteries are parallel and maintain a 12v load but have increased amp capacity, then it is actually ideal to have both of them charging with these banks. Just make sure each bank is connected to its own 12V battery.

One thing to note is that the NOCO Gen5x2 # NOC34FR is the mini (but also newer) 2 bank charger and it charges 5-amp per bank. If you need a little more charging amperage, we also have the NOCO Gen2 # NOC64FR which is a bit larger but also charges 10 amps per battery bank.
