Camper Van Electric Components

Becuase brand names/jargon like MPPT, Orion TR Smart, Multiplus etc. are meaningless to n00bs :-O


MPPT is an abbreviation of "maximum power point tracking" (sometimes just power point tracking).

The power generated by the solar panels may drop when when covered by shade/snow/etc. They might only generate 5V. Or 9V. The electornics in the van however, expect 12V. The MPPT regulates the incoming power to ensure that the van's electrics always receive 12V.
