For a built in solution for my house battery, I use an Iota DLS55- IQ4 based on recommendations here. it seems to work pretty well, although I don't use it all too often. Mostly for when my solar panels can't keep up and I am near a plug. I also use it as an insurance "top off" for my batteries before leaving, as my solar isn't as effective where I park the trailer at home. If you are looking for something portable, that is a different story.

Could you be a little bit more specific? Do you want to install this charger in one of your vehicles or RV? Do you want it to be portable etc.

Both the Sterling Power ProCharge Ultra and ProMariner Pronautic P series will let you optimize setpoints for all types of bank chemistries, pretty future proof.

I have an RV, I current have an old battery changer 7 amp, I have a 350 watts renogy solar panel with dc to dc charger. I am thinking of upgrading to “smarter” charger.

Do you have an existing converter/charger in your RV?
It’s possibly built into your fuse box area. Many of them are dumb chargers but you can upgrade them to smart chargers and there is no danger of over charging batteries by leaving your rig plugged in too much.
