The 9 Best 24 Volt Battery Chargers
This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in January of 2020. Golf carts, boats, and eBikes are just a few of the items that often use 24-volt batteries for power. Our list of chargers covers options for a wide range of battery capacities, from the very large to the extremely small. No matter which one you choose, always take every possible safety precaution when handling electronics, and never leave charging devices alone for extended periods of time. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

For the most part, it was a relatively straightforward round of updates, with most of our selections proving to still be good choices, but we still found a few places to brush up on things. We decided to eliminate the HoneyCare 24V Sealed, noticing that it wasn’t available at the time of this writing and not feeling overly impressed by its low maximum output, and also swapped a couple of options out for upgraded picks.
The Beleeb BLB-C40 and ProMariner 44021 lost their respective spots to their logical successors, the Beleeb C25 and ProMariner 44021 Plus. In the case of both these options, the major draw to the replacements was their improved displays. In this respect, the C25 – which boasts a practical digital display in lieu of the vintage analog aesthetic of the BLB-C40 – is much more capable than the 44021 Plus, which has no screen. However, this version of the 44021 at least has a simple five-LED charge indicator to help keep you advised of a battery’s progress. It’s hardly exact, but it’s still a strong step up from the single flashing diode on the original model.

We've covered a large variety of general purpose chargers that will work with many different 24 volt systems, but when selecting a charger it's important to make sure that it has enough amps to be practical for your system's capacity. Many of the selections on our list sport 12 volt functionality as well, and often have access to only half the listed maximum amperage when charging 24 volt batteries. Despite this, the AIMS Power Smart Charger, Stark Monster Charger, and Beleeb Battery Charger still pack plenty of power for batteries with 100 ampere hours or more. More current means more danger though, and given that the latter two items lack automatic controls, these choices should only be considered by those with a lot of experience with electronics.
For people who find that those items go beyond their price range and the scope of their needs, the Foxsur Automatic Smart Battery Charger/Maintainer, TPE Automatic Battery Charger Maintainer, and Topac Smart Car Battery Charger are examples of simpler models that are perfectly adequate for charging lower-capacity electronics overnight, such as eBikes or mobility scooters.
We think the ProMariner ProSport 20 Plus offers great all-around functionality for a variety of situations, but it's also the only option on our list purpose built for the electrical systems found on boats. If you're looking for more information on chargers designed expressly for this application, as well as units targeted at golf carts or cars, check out our articles that dive deeper into those specific categories.
Schumacher DSR123 Once connected to a 120-volt source, this wheeled model from Schumacher can put out 250 or 150 amps to boost 12- or 24-volt batteries, and if that's not enough for you, the company has bigger models to offer. Its output cables provide 17 feet of reach, which allows the user some flexibility. batterychargers.com
Century Tool & Equipment This company is a one-stop shop for fleet-maintenance needs, and has several commercially viable chargers for you to choose from. Granted, their 30-day warranty leaves something to be desired, but if something gives out in your unit past then, at least you know their website has a separate section for repair parts. centurytool.net
