    Battery charger (Cetrek automatic battery charger)

    Hello friends,
    I was given an automatic battery charger brand "Cetrek".
    Is a 24V-40A charger that looks fine and i think that works!!!Must be very-very old charger.I tried to find some details about this charger on the Internet and i found... NOTHING. Does anyone knows anything helpful about it, such as how many batteries can charge at the same time or if it is a reliable charger or not? I'm thinking to use it in my fishing boat and I'm afraid of any "fire" issues!!!
    Thanks in advance for your kind response.

    You may find that this charger was built for the private aviation market. Ask around your local airport. Don't think Cetrek is in business any longer.

    If this charger was not made for marine use then you should not use it on your boat. If it is an older model and no longer on the market I would be very averse to using it on a boat. It more than likely does not meet any current marine standards.
