 Alternator charging may bring some battery chemistries (like lithium) to **unsuitably high voltages**. ​  A [[electrical:​12v:​hvd|high voltage disconnect]] can [[electrical:​12v:​alternator charging hvd|restrict alternator charging to lower voltages]]. ​ [[electrical:​12v:​b2b|DC-DC chargers]] can also regulate voltage provided to the house battery. ​ Alternator charging may bring some battery chemistries (like lithium) to **unsuitably high voltages**. ​  A [[electrical:​12v:​hvd|high voltage disconnect]] can [[electrical:​12v:​alternator charging hvd|restrict alternator charging to lower voltages]]. ​ [[electrical:​12v:​b2b|DC-DC chargers]] can also regulate voltage provided to the house battery. ​

 **Idling the engine** to charge house batteries **can seriously overheat the alternator**. ​ It is usually cooled by wind from the vehicle'​s forward motion; ​ a fan may help cool the alternator. **Idling the engine** to charge house batteries **can seriously overheat the alternator**. ​ It is usually cooled by wind from the vehicle'​s forward motion; ​ a fan may help cool the alternator.
