Dual Battery Systems
The one thing you really don’t want when you’re far from home in your 4x4 is a flat battery. A dual battery system is considered indispensable for any vehicle intended for remote use. But not all dual battery systems are created equal. There are plenty of generic dual battery kits on the market that are built to a price, but not optimized for the vehicle - or the user – they are to serve. With today’s vehicles containing so many computers you simply cannot afford to have a system that delivers an uneven electrical supply.
At Ultimate 4WD, we’ll create for you a vehicle-specific, mission-specific dual battery system, because we know each vehicle is different. Creating a custom system allows us to ensure that it is in sync to your vehicle’s computers, and that it has the capacity to deliver the fridges, lighting and any other services you need. Our systems can be built to integrate with campers, caravans, solar panels and external generators, making all of your accessories work together in harmony.
Our dual batteries systems are all inclusive of as many Australian parts as we can get, a lot of these parts are from the Australian designed and built REDARC Electronics. Along with integrating there batteries system parts alongside out own hand made wiring, we also recommend and fit REDARC’s full range brake controllers, isolators, gauges, Solar panels, and any other electrical 4X4 accessories one could need.
REDARC Electronics have over 30 years’ experience designing and making electronic voltage converters and electric trailer brakes. As well as dual battery isolators, and the Smart Start Battery Management System, with a controller that accepts AC, DC and solar inputs. The Smart Start Battery Management system is highly intelligent, with a range of different charging profiles that cater for all aspects of 4x4 use – even for storage. The Smart Start system has charging profiles for all battery types in common use. Better still, if your house battery is of a different kind to your vehicle start battery, the Smart Start system takes both in its stride.
The penalty of electrical failure when you’re far from home can be severe. If you’re in any doubt about the adequacy of your dual battery kit, or want to know more about the REDARC brake controller, talk to us today.
