-Overbanking means having a battery bank oversized compared to available ​solar-only ​charging power+//Overbanking// means having a battery bank oversized compared to charging power (particularly in solar-only ​scenarios)
-The [[electrical:​solar:​panel-bank_ratio|solar:​battery ratio]] might be something like 1:2.+The [[electrical:​solar:​panel-bank_ratio|solar:​battery ratio]] might be something like 1:2.  Overbanking is the opposite of [[electrical:​solar:​overpaneling|overpaneling]].
  
 [[electrical:​12v:​lifepo4_batteries_thread|Lithium]] chemistries are not bothered by partial state of charge so overbanking is a non-issue for them.  The camper might have a lot of lithium capacity to take advantage of [[electrical:​12v:​alternator|alternator charging]] or [[electrical:​shore_power|shore power]] charging (via [[electrical:​converter|converter]] or stand-alone charger). [[electrical:​12v:​lifepo4_batteries_thread|Lithium]] chemistries are not bothered by partial state of charge so overbanking is a non-issue for them.  The camper might have a lot of lithium capacity to take advantage of [[electrical:​12v:​alternator|alternator charging]] or [[electrical:​shore_power|shore power]] charging (via [[electrical:​converter|converter]] or stand-alone charger).
