Integration and Applications
The Victron Orion Smart 18A 12V DC to DC charger is an intelligent battery-to-battery charger designed to automatically charge one 12V battery or battery bank from another 12V battery or battery bank with its own energy source. This makes it perfect for solar charging systems with a high solar input, where a capable dual battery solar charge controller may be expensive or difficult to procure. It is also ideal for charging a 12V leisure battery system from the vehicle alternator, depending on the target battery for battery-to-battery charging.
The charger can be easily integrated or retrofitted into any 12V system, allowing the user to transform a single battery system into a dual battery charging system. For example, it can take power from a starter battery to charge a leisure or auxiliary battery.
