No more charging the batteries nightly
John has recently upgraded his Sportsman Island Bays battery system with REDARC components, and lithium batteries installed by Revolution Power Solutions. This was a game changer for John… No more charging the batteries nightly to power the electric motor for the next day on the water. Now the outboard was charging the lithium batteries throughout the day. This is a huge asset for those travelling – running power cords out of the accommodation each night is fraught with problems. This was no longer a concern.
Some of the other advantages that John enjoyed with the new power setup are:
- Lithium batteries are smaller and lighter, a big advantage in boats and campers.
- Longer running time.
- They hold a high voltage longer
- Faster charging time – up to 5 times faster!
Having had great success with powering the boat, John contacted Redarc and Revolution Power Solutions to help power the camper. These companies have had a lot of experience powering campers before, and offered a great system to keep John and Peta in power wherever they are. The camper power system even has the capacity to charge the boat if needed!
Redarc and Revolution Power Solutions are currently working with Aussie Road Runner campers on the installation – we can’t wait to see the result!
Keep watching the website and our Facebook page for updates on the build of the camper and what Peta and John have been up to.
