- requires wiring/interface to the field windings of the alternator, which is considered more complex than adding a battery charger, and may void the warranty of some alternators
- works in parallel with the OEM regulator, and will cut itself out if a fault is detected
- is unaware of multiple battery banks.
- does not require any wiring to the alternator, other than the positive and negative leads, thereby minimizing the wiring, and possibly preserving the warranty of your alternator.
- also works in conjunction with the OEM regulator, but tricks the OEM regulator out by presenting a low voltage to the alternator / regulator, thus causing the alternator to work harder to provide higher voltage and amperage, which the charger manages, and presents to the batteries connected to the ProAlt-C's "domestic" (a.k.a. "house") output post.
- is designed to work with multiple battery banks.
