-Shunt controllers are very simple devices that charge to a given voltage [[electrical:​solar:​charge_controller_setpoints|setpoint]] (Vdisconnect) then stop charging. ​ If/when voltage falls to some lower voltage (Vreconnect) charging begins again. ​ This is sometimes called [[electrical:​12v:​charging#​charge-and-stop|charge and stop charging]].+Shunt controllers are very simple devices that charge to a given voltage [[electrical:​solar:​charge_controller_setpoints|setpoint]] (Vdisconnect) then stop charging. ​ If/when voltage falls to some lower voltage (Vreconnect) charging begins again. ​ This is sometimes called [[electrical:​12v:​charging#​charge-and-stop|charge and stop charging]] ​or on/off charging.
