HI...in the new year im wanting to get a Sterling B2B charger.And was wondering which one to get. I have a Fiat Ducatto 2001 2.8jtd and from what i can gather the alternator is rated at 90 amps? I have a 230 amp battery but fitted in the rear of the vehicle. Its the rollerteam as per avatar.i Have seen all different ones advertised on Ebay and now im confused as to which would be best for me. Taking into account the cost price, location of leisure battery, and i think i use a lot of electric lol. Any thought would be most appreciated. Thanks.

There are other options, I recently fitted a 50A German Votronic b2b charger with almost identical specs to the usual Sterling one.

Votronic Product Search (http://www.votronic.de/en/catalog.php?PHPSESSID=qdfeokc75mhodp789bm2di60m4&path=m_4_1&mode=product&id=412&catid=4&cattype=application)

It cost a little more but I thought it worthwhile.

I would mount the B2B close to the Leisure battery. Once the engine is running there will be enough voltage to compensate for drop in voltage (because of the long cabeling in your case)to the B2B.
