This solar compatible model allows a DC to DC charger to run directly from solar panels.
A DC to DC charger is the most effective way to recharge & maintain a caravan battery while towing. "Set & Forget" digital controls ensure the battery is fully charged and maintained without the risk of overcharging. Its been built tough to protect against dust and moisture. Ideal for caravans, camper vans, pop tops and camper trailers fitted with dual battery systems.
The life expectancy and performance of caravan batteries is severely impacted when a battery is not fully recharged after use. Without a DC to DC charger a vehicle’s alternator is incapable of fully charging and maintaining a caravan battery. The Pro Series Battery Charger is designed to fully charge an auxiliary battery. By providing a unique charging profile to each battery type it is able to maintain an optimal charge in a caravan battery and wont drain the starter battery or run it flat. It also protects any secondary battery set-ups from going flat when they're most needed.

10 amp DC to DC ChargerBy: John on 24 April 2017Product and instructions appear good quality and easily wired with indicator lights confirming positive charging. Mounting brackets and screws supplied but no explanation on how to fit to charger. Alternative brackets have been manufactured.
DC to DC ChargerBy: Brian Richards on 28 August 2016Received charger promptly and it was easy to fit except there were no instructions on how to fit the two retaining brackets. The only way I could see was to drill into the case which I would not do. I fixed the charger to the floor with some Velcro and that worked OK. I am now half way across Australia and it is working perfectly, just I had hoped. I would recommend one for any one who needs a charger for their camper trailer. A 10 amp one is fine for me but maybe a 20amp would be better for some applications.
