Many of todays modern cars and 4 wheel drives have a very advanced electrical charging system compared to those built in the late 2010’s. Computer and temperature controlled alternators are designed to create a more fuel efficient vehicle. A “BCDC” charger is required instead of your conventional “smart solenoid” on newer vehicles to keep auxiliary and house batteries charged to optimum levels whilst travelling. It is of a compact size, robust and durable when properly installed. Best of all, it will charge your batteries to a level minimising cable voltage drop. A specific “BCDC” charger can be used to suit your requirements. They are available in 20, 25 and 40 amp outputs. The larger units can be used to incorporate solar panel usage.

Solar Servicing and Check-Up
You may already have a solar equipped vehicle or caravan and suspect it is not working as efficiently as it should.

Single or more components may sometimes only need checking and replacing to bring your system straight back up to maximum efficiency.
