1. SAFETY INFORMATION
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!
This manual contains important safety and operating instructions applicable to the safe and efficient use of your Minn Kota battery charger.
The Minn Kota battery charger is a powerful electrical device. If incorrectly installed, configured or operated, the battery charger can damage batteries and / or electrical equipment. Please read thoroughly the instructions and safety information contained in this manual before operating the
battery charger.
WARNING: RISK OF EXPLOSIVE GASES
WORKING IN THE VICINITY OF A LEAD ACID BATTERY IS DANGEROUS. BATTERIES CONTAIN SULFURIC ACID AND PRODUCE
EXPLOSIVE GASES. A BATTERY EXPLOSION COULD RESULT IN LOSS OF EYESIGHT OR SERIOUS BURNS. FOR THIS REASON, IT
IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE THAT YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS EACH TIME YOU USE THE CHARGER.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF BATTERY EXPLOSION, FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS AND THOSE PUBLISHED BY THE BATTERY
MANUFACTURER FOR ANY EQUIPMENT YOU INTEND TO USE IN THE VICINITY OF THE BATTERY. REVIEW CAUTIONARY
MARKINGS ON THESE PRODUCTS AND ON ENGINE, MOTOR OR OTHER EQUIPMENT REQUIRING BATTERY USAGE.
Use of an attachment not recommended or sold by Johnson Outdoors Inc. may result in risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons or property.
The charger is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision. Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play
with the charger.
To reduce risk of damage to electric plug or cord, pull by the plug rather than the cord when disconnecting the battery charger.
An extension cord should not be used unless absolutely necessary. Use of the improper extension cord could result in a risk of fire or electric
shock. If extension cord must be used, make sure:
a) That pins of plug of the extension cord are the same number, size and shape of those of the plug on the battery charger;
b) That extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition;
c) That wire in extension cord is proper size as follows:
Do not operate the battery charger with a damaged cord or plug.
Minimum recommended AWG wire size for various length extension cords used with the Minn Kota
battery charger:
Length of Cord in feet
25
50
100
AWG Size 161412
Do not operate the battery charger if it has received a sharp blow, been dropped or otherwise damaged in any way.
Do not disassemble the charger. Incorrect reassembly may result in a risk of electric shock or fire.
To reduce risk of electric shock, unplug the charger from outlet before attempting any maintenance or cleaning. Disconnecting the leads will not
reduce this risk.
To reduce to risk of shock or spark, never touch the ring terminals together while the charger is plugged into an outlet or extension cord.
External connections to the battery charger shall comply with the United States Coast Guard electrical regulations (33CFR183, Sub Part 1).
2. PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS
Consider having someone close enough nearby to come to your aid when you work near a lead acid battery.
Have plenty of fresh water and soap nearby in case battery acid contacts skin, clothing or eyes.
Wear complete eye protection and clothing protection. Avoid touching eyes while working near battery.
If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water. If acid enters eye, immediately flood eye with running cold water
2
for at least 10 minutes and get medical attention immediately.
Never smoke or allow a spark or flame in vicinity of battery, engine, motor or other flammable or explosive equipment.
Be extra cautious to reduce risk of dropping a metal tool onto battery. It might spark or short circuit battery or other electrical part that may
cause explosion.
Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and watches when working with a lead acid battery. A lead acid battery can
produce a short circuit current high enough to weld such items, causing severe burns.
Use the Minn Kota battery charger for charging and maintaining FLOODED / WET CELL, MAINTENANCE FREE, AND AGM / STARVED
ELECTROLYTE batteries only. It is not intended to supply power to low voltage electrical systems other than for charging and maintaining batteries. Do not use the charger for charging dry-cell batteries that are commonly used with home appliances. These batteries may burst and
cause injury to persons and damage to property.
NEVER charge a frozen battery.
3. PREPARING TO CHARGE
1) If necessary to remove battery from boat or vehicle to charge or maintain, always remove grounded terminal from battery first (if applicable).
Make sure all accessories in the boat or vehicle are off, so as not to cause an arc.
2) Be sure area around battery is well ventilated while battery is being charged or maintained.
3) Clean battery terminals. Be careful to keep corrosion from coming in contact with eyes.
4) Add distilled water in each cell until battery acid reaches level specified by battery manufacturer ONLY AFTER the battery has been charged.
Adding water to a discharged battery may result in acid leaking out of the battery and causing injury to persons and damage to property. Do not
overfill. Study all battery manufacturers’ specific precautions; however, make sure to REPLACE ALL CELL CAPS after refilling so that water
evaporation is avoided. Water will evaporate over time if cell caps are not replaced after refilling. For a battery without removable cell caps,
such as valve regulated lead acid batteries, carefully follow manufacturer’s recharging instructions.
NOTE: The battery fluid level should be checked every 30 days
5) Study all battery manufacturers’ specific precautions while charging and recommended rates of charge.
4. DC CONNECTION PRECAUTIONS
1) The Minn Kota charger will only charge 12 volt 6 cell lead acid batteries. Do not connect the output of the charger to any other voltage or
type of battery.
2) The charger’s DC output terminals are designed to be permanently mounted and connected to batteries.
3) Connect and disconnect DC output terminals only after removing the AC plug from the electric outlet.
4) The charger output leads must be connected with the correct polarity for the charger to function. The RED lead must be connected to the
POSITIVE terminal of the battery and the BLACK lead must be connected to the NEGATIVE terminal of the battery. See section 6 under
“CONNECTING THE BATTERIES TO THE CHARGER” for proper connection procedure.
5. GROUNDING AND AC POWER CORD CONNECTION INSTRUCTIONS
The Minn Kota battery charger should be grounded to reduce risk of electric shock. The charger is equipped with an electric AC power cord
with a grounded plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
DANGER – Never alter AC cord or plug provided – if it will not fit outlet, have proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. Improper connection can result in a risk of an electric shock.
CAUTION – To reduce risk of fire or electric shock, connect battery charger directly to grounding receptacle (three-prong). An adapter should
not be used with battery charger.

6. INSTALLING THE BATTERY CHARGER
CHOOSING THE MOUNTING LOCATION:
Do not mount the charger above batteries as lead-acid batteries give off corrosive gasses which will damage the charger over time. Never allow
battery acid to drip on charger when reading electrolyte specific gravity or filling battery. Also, as with most electrical devices, do not mount the
charger below the waterline of the boat or directly adjacent to fuel tanks.
Each DC output cord is 6 feet long. Make sure that all DC output cords can reach the batteries and that the AC power cord can reach a power
source. When using an extension cord, make the AC connection to the charger outside of the battery compartment as far away as practical to
reduce the risk of a spark igniting gasses in the compartment.
The MK106 output cord is equipped with a temperature sensor. By monitoring external temperature, the battery charger adjusts the charging
profile of the battery to assure full charge without overcharging or undercharging the battery. Attempting to lengthen or shorten the output wires
could damage the temperature sensor and affect the charger output.
If the DC battery leads are not long enough, they may be lengthened by splicing and soldering 12 AWG (minimum) wire. Each splice should be
covered with dual wall adhesive lined heat shrink tubing to protect the joint from corroding. The splice should be made between the fork in the
output cable and the fuse holder. The fuse holder should always remain within 7” of the battery terminals. The maximum extension length is
15 feet. You may contact the Minn Kota Service Department with any questions. Do not splice the AC power cord, as this voids the three year
Limited Warranty.
Even though the Minn Kota charger is capable of operating in a high ambient temperature environment, a minimum of 6 inches of unobstructed
area should be allowed on all sides of the unit for proper air circulation and cooling. Proper cooling and circulation will allow the charger to operate at peak efficiency.
MOUNTING THE CHARGER:
Due to the weight of the charger and the pounding that boats routinely endure, take the time to securely mount the charger to prevent damage.
Mounting with bolts, nuts, and washers is preferable to mounting with screws. Use the largest diameter bolts possible, and use all four mounting
holes.
Your battery charger is supplied with an AC plug holder designed to hold the power cord plug when not in use. Mount the AC plug holder with
four screws in a convenient dry site to prevent corrosion to the AC plug and to prevent the AC plug from making contact with the battery posts.
CONNECTING THE BATTERIES TO THE CHARGER:
CAUTION – Because the body of the battery charger is metallic, do not directly mount the charger to the hull of an aluminum boat. Use a
means of isolation (such as wood or plastic) to prevent the charger body as well as mounting fasteners from coming in contact with the aluminum boat structure or hull. Doing so will eliminate any risk of electrolysis that may occur when AC power is connected to the charger.
WARNING – MAKE SURE THE CHARGER IS DISCONNECTED FROM AC POWER BEFORE CONNECTING THE BATTERIES TO THE
OUTPUT CORDS.
CAUTION - Before making any connections to batteries in a confined space (such as a battery compartment of a boat), open the door or hatch
of the compartment and allow it to air out for 15 minutes. This allows any gasses that have accumulated in the compartment to escape.
FOLLOW THESE STEPS WHEN THE BATTERY CHARGER IS INSTALLED IN A BOAT OR VEHICLE. A SPARK NEAR THE BATTERY MAY
CAUSE BATTERY EXPLOSION. TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A SPARK NEAR THE BATTERY:
1. Position AC and DC cords to reduce risk of damage by hood, door, or moving engine parts.
2. Stay clear of fan blades, belts, pulleys and other parts that can cause injury to persons.
3. Check polarity of battery posts. POSITIVE (POS, P, +) battery post is usually larger in diameter than NEGATIVE (NEG, N, -) post.
4. Determine which post of the battery is grounded (connected) to the chassis (if any). If negative post is grounded to the boat hull or chassis
(as in most vehicles), see (5) below. If positive post is grounded to the boat hull or chassis, see (6) below. If neither is grounded, the order in
which the output leads are connected does not matter.
5. For negative-grounded boat or vehicle, connect POSITIVE (RED) output terminal to POSITIVE (POS, P, +) ungrounded post of battery first.
Then connect NEGATIVE (BLACK) output to NEGATIVE (NEG, N, -) grounded post of battery.
6. For positive-grounded boat or vehicle, connect NEGATIVE (BLACK) output to NEGATIVE (NEG, N, -) ungrounded post of battery first. Then,
connect POSITIVE (RED) output terminal to POSITIVE (POS, P, +) grounded post of battery.
7. When disconnecting charger, disconnect AC power cord from electric outlet first.
8. When disconnecting output terminals from battery posts, always do so in reverse sequence of the connecting procedure while as far away
from battery as practical.
FOLLOW THESE STEPS WHEN BATTERY IS OUTSIDE BOAT OR VEHICLE. A SPARK NEAR BATTERY MAY CAUSE BATTERY
EXPLOSION. TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A SPARK NEAR BATTERY:

7. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Make sure the charger is properly mounted and the DC output cords are connected properly to the batteries. Double check the polarities of the
output cords and make sure the correct bank of the charger is connected to the correct battery.
INDICATOR LIGHTS:
To begin charging, connect the charger to AC power. All lights will turn on momentarily. The following will be displayed on the charger:
A GREEN power light is lit to indicate AC power is applied. Each bank has YELLOW, GREEN, and RED lights to indicate charging status and
error conditions.
Minn Kota’s Multi-Stage Charging has three modes of operation that deliver a fast, precise charge profile by automatically controlling current and
voltage without overcharging your batteries.
Stage 1: Bulk Mode
During this stage, the charger delivers full current until the battery reaches ~75% charge. A YELLOW light is lit for each bank to indi
cate the battery is charging in the Bulk Mode.
Stage 2: Absorption Mode
The charging current tapers down while the battery voltage is held at 14.4V at 77°F. A flashing YELLOW light is lit for each bank to
indicate the battery is charging in the Absorption Mode.
Stage 3: Maintenance Mode
When the battery reaches full charge, the charger voltage is dropped to 13.4V at 77°F. A flashing GREEN light is lit for each bank to
indicate the battery is in Maintenance Mode and ready to use. After 24 hours, the charger automatically turns off and a GREEN light is
lit for each bank to indicate the battery is in long term Maintenance Mode and ready to use. The charger will automatically turn on
when the battery voltage drops below 12.6V.

Error Conditions:
1) A RED light for each bank is lit if any of the following apply:
a) No battery is connected to an output cord. This may also indicate a blown fuse in the fuse holder.
b) The battery is connected reverse polarity.
c) A short circuit.
d) The battery voltage is below 4 volts. The bank will not charge a battery in this condition. (see note below)
e) The battery voltage is above 18 volts. The bank will not charge a battery in this condition.
2) A flashing RED light is lit for each bank if there is a damaged temperature sensor on the output cord. The bank will not operate if
this occurs.
3) Flashing RED and GREEN lights are lit for each bank if any of the following apply:
a) The battery voltage does not rise above 10.5V after 3 hours. The battery may be damaged and will not be charged.
b) Charging in Bulk Mode exceeds 20 hours. The battery may be damaged and will not be charged
NOTE – A 12 volt battery with an open-circuit voltage below 4 volts has either been discharged to the point of internal damage, may be heavily
sulfated, or may have internal shorted cells. Attempting to charge a battery in this state is dangerous. The battery should be replaced.
CAUTION – If a RED light is lit, disconnect the AC power from the charger immediately. Determine the reason based on the above information
and take the necessary corrective action to remedy the situation. If you are unable to remedy the situation and need help, call the Minn Kota
Service Department at 1-800-227-6433 and a technical support representative will be happy to assist you.
CAUTION – We recommend that you not recharge your battery, (or batteries), with the watercraft or motor lower unit in the water during electrical
storms. Severe damage to the motor or charging system may occur if lightning strikes nearby or if storm related high voltage conditions exist.
CAUTION – Generators with a modified square wave output can damage this MINN KOTA charger. Generators with a sine wave output can be
used to power this charger.
WARNING – TO REDUCE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT PERFORM ANY SERVICING OTHER THAN THOSE CONTAINED IN THE
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS.
INLINE FUSE:
Each output cord has inline fuses on the RED and BLACK leads located near the ring terminals. These fuses serve as protection from surges
and short circuits caused by a damaged charger output cable. If a fuse blows, replace it with the exact type and rating of the original fuse.
Improper battery connections will normally not cause a fuse to blow since this is handled by the chargers internal circuitry.
8. MAINTENANCE / CLEANING / STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS
Check battery charger for dirt, oil, battery corrosion, etc. Use a water and baking soda solution for cleaning corrosion. Wipe clean using a dry
cloth.
Check ring terminals for dirt, oil, and battery corrosion; then disconnect from battery posts and clean as necessary with water and baking soda
solution and dry with a clean cloth.
