Grant was helpful when I needed to change my order at the last minute. Bimble seem to know their products and understand their customers, which makes them nice to deal with.
Having no experience with solar at all whatsoever, I phoned to speak to someone before I placed my order. They were so helpful and talked me through what I needed and products arrived really promptly too. I can highly recommend Bimble for all your solar needs

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.
