Brilliant service. Thanks to mike and the team for the advice.
Five Stars. A solar company who you can actually rely on in difficult times. Four orders with Bimble Solar over the last couple of weeks including a Victron Quattro inverter that was delivered today . Slight hold up on the first order as it was quite a few different items and i knew one item was showing out of stock . Other orders were dispatched quickly. Due to recent Solar boom it has proved very difficult to get hold of 4kw Victron inverters . I cancelled orders with 3 other companies who all lied about having stock when they had none and in most cases had no idea at all when they could get delivery. Bimble Solar were the only company to come through with the goods and one of the few companies i've dealt with over the last couple of weeks who are actually honest about their stock levels. Highly recommended , came through with the goods with flying colours at a time when Solar equipment is proving difficult to source.

BB1240 Reverse Charging Feature.
The BB1240 is able to charge in both directions. Provided there is over 13.2V on the leisure battery (13.5V if lithium) and the starter battery is below 13V the BB shall allow approximately half current (~20A) to flow back to the starter battery up to about 13.4V (float voltage). It simply allows the starter battery to remain topped up when there is surplus energy in the domestic battery. This feature will NOT drain your domestic battery - it simply takes surplus. Once your alternator / engine turns on or you provide the BB with an ignition signal the BB reverts to normal charging of the leisure battery. This mode can be disabled, but is on as default.
This is ideal for allowing the starter battery to remain topped up when you have solar / wind / charger - charging up your leisure battery.
