Why is battery current different to solar current on my MPPT?

Just help me - on my Victron connect. What is solar current and Battery current? And why is battery current higher than solar current? Is that the Mppt magic?

Yes, in a nutshell it is MPPT magic.
Although there is no magic really, it's just power conversion.
In Bulk stage, if you find out the power coming from solar (Amps x Volts) and find out the power going to the battery (Amps x Volts) then you will see that there is not much difference in the power going into the MPPT and the power going out to the battery.
