The need for battery power in Automotive systems?
You can’t always guarantee that wherever you go, there will be power available to use. In recent times, there has been exponential growth in the demand for mobile power systems. Irrespective of what your operations are, it is essential that a reliable source of power is always available.Browse batteries
Should I use a generator?
Diesel, LPG and hydrogen generators, amongst others, all provide stable predictable sources of power. Another common source of electrical energy in automotive applications is from using the vehicle’s alternator. There are times when integrating a fuel based generation source into an automotive application is essential. Such an integration can work extremely well with our battery based power solutions, either with or without renewable resources.View generators
How do I manage my Automotive system?

Application: Upgrading to lithium from lead acid
A mobile butcher shop business was previously relying upon power from a heavy, aged lead acid system. It was upgraded to a new lithium based power system which offered 60% weight reduction, the ability to charge from the vehicles alternator and also the integration of a solar system. The installation has meant that the business is able to offer its customers an increased quality of service with an increased window of operation.
Mobile Coffee Machine
The preparation of food and drinks can use significant amounts of power, especially when serving the needs of an inner city workforce. A Victron Quattro and battery pack allowed the customer to offer a full mobile service without reliance on a grid connection or a noisy generator. Solution: Victron Quattro 48V 10kVA, Battery monitor BMV700 and 8kWh of OPzV batteries. The system provided enough power for around 1000 cups of coffee each day.
