This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in October of 2018. If you own a truck, boat, RV or ATV that uses dual batteries, you may have noticed that when one of them drains or fails, it negatively impacts the performance of the other. These 12-volt isolators will allow you to charge both batteries simultaneously so that ancillary features, like car stereos and complex navigation equipment, don’t decrease your battery life. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best 12v battery isolator on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 02, 2019:

While the Zoostliss Power isn’t constructed to handle a ton of current, reports indicate that it’s an ideal choice for light duty that provides remarkable value. A few models — such as the JayCorp Dual and KeyLine Smart — are designed with advanced technology that enables them to monitor the voltage of each battery individually to prioritize which requires focus for charging.
