Just trying to get an answer you like, LOL. If they are both AGM batteries you should be able too. But then too you might phone the companies and ask them, and if they say no, ask why, specifically.

No. The Turbo Start chargers ( I checked 2 of them) put out over 21 volts while charging. Your Powermaster batteries say do not exceed 19.4 or 19.6 volts. I bought the Powermaster charger and sure enough it charges in the upper 18 to low 19 range.

Well you could have bought Turbo Start batteries again.

From what i have been told you can use a intellicharger powermaster charger on turbo start batteries but not the new turbo start on the powermaster batteries.

What about the Moroso 12/16 volt charger on a Powermaster? I've heard there a better charger, but would they be too much, like the turbo starts for the Powermaster batteries?

I switched to the Powermaster charger a few years ago. My battery life has improved dramatically vs. the Turbo Start charger. I guess the Turbo Start was cooking batteries?
