 Alternator + solar charging has considerable benefits over [[electrical:​12v:​alternator|alternator charging alone]], and over [[electrical:​solar|solar alone]]. ​ It can make a small solar install punch well above its weight, [[opinion:​frater_secessus:​panelsizesforinsolation|acting like a much bigger install in areas of poor insolation]]. Alternator + solar charging has considerable benefits over [[electrical:​12v:​alternator|alternator charging alone]], and over [[electrical:​solar|solar alone]]. ​ It can make a small solar install punch well above its weight, [[opinion:​frater_secessus:​panelsizesforinsolation|acting like a much bigger install in areas of poor insolation]].
  
-Note that adding alternator ​to charging does not need a fancy, expensive isolator; ​ in some ways [[electrical:​12v:​alternator#​constant-duty_solenoid|the simple solenoid]] provides best bang-for-buck with the fewest drawbacks.((see the Gotchas section)) ​+Note that adding alternator charging ​to the mix does not require ​a fancy, expensive isolator; ​ in some ways [[electrical:​12v:​alternator#​constant-duty_solenoid|the simple solenoid]] provides best bang-for-buck with the fewest drawbacks.((see the Gotchas section)) ​
