Orion dc dc charger

I have just installed the Orion-tr dc dc charger 360W , I thought the alternator could handle the load but apparently it can't, the charger killed my starter battery in 5-10 min whist the engine was running, it cycled on and off as the voltage quickly went up and down. The starter battery is just a box standard lead acid battery and the battery bank im trying to charge is a lithium bank, changing the alternator is no small job to replace as it's pretty well integrated into the engine, so my question is ... is there custom firmware available to allow you to choose the charge rate ? I thought this option would have been there as standard but maybe it can be added in a future firmware release ?

Update * the alternator is rated at 60A
