In-vehicle DC-DC charger for your RV

MiniBoost is a compact DC-DC charger /booster for RVs. It is specially designed to work with BMPRO’s BatteryPlus35 and J35 systems.  Charge your caravan or campertrailer’s house battery from the towing vehicle’s electrical system, even if the voltage delivered from the tow vehicle is lower than required for a recharge.

The MiniBoost DC to DC charger provides a 2-stage charging profile. It delivers an efficient and controlled current until the auxiliary battery is charged. Miniboost functions when wired directly to most 12V Lead Acid batteries.

The MiniBoost is not a power supply and must be connected to a battery.

To get more out of your solar panels while driving, or to use the DC-DC charger with lithium battery, refer to 30A DC-DC charger MiniBoostPRO.

It is recommended to have a suitably qualified person wire in the relay into your car and the MiniBoost as close as possible to the house battery to ensure optimal performance

The MiniBoost has four connections. Connect orange to batt+ input, connect white to batt- input, connect red to batt+ (battery to be charged) and black to the batt-.

The MiniBoost can be connected to the auxiliary input of the BP35 or J35.  Initially when connected, the MiniBoost will provide a low current output until it detects a valid battery connected to the BP/J35.  If the battery is not detected, the MiniBoost will shut down.
