 +===== THIS PAGE IS DEPRECATED: Use VictronConnect instead of mpptprefs ===== 
 + 
 +We recommend to use [[victronconnect:start|VictronConnect]] instead of mpptprefs. Much simpler and faster to use. Also it includes automatic firmware updates.

 Change the load switch on/off behavior. By default the battery life algorithm will be used (option 1). Normally a jumper can be used to select between two fixed switch on/off set-points. However if you require communication with the charger (e.g. when connecting a Color Control) you can use options 2 or 3 to preset a conventional algorithm. Options 5 and 6 can be used to create custom algorithms, with programmable switch on and switch off levels (see options 'h' and 'l'). Change the load switch on/off behavior.

 +Keep in mind that modes 0 (always off) and 4 (always on) will respond immediately, the other modes rely on the battery voltage and have a delay of 2 minutes before the load output will change (so the charger does not respond too quickly when for example an inrush current briefly lowers the battery below the threshold voltage).
