The EO Mini Pro 2 comes with built-in Active Load Management (ALM) feature. The ALM technology will detect changes in the power supply. The built-in smart power management will automatically balance charging for the most efficient energy distribution. To enable this feature, you’ll need an additional CT Clamp. If you are running the spa pool, have AI gaming going and all the TVs on then power management takes the worry away.
