Need an AC supply to run your Laptop, or charge your power tools Etc. Then come speak to us, we have been doing Car Inverter for years. The picture above shows a system we installed for a Film Crew, they needed to keep the Camera charged up between jobs!
The most efficient way to use a Car Inverter, is to power the unit from a second Battery, make sure you use a proper split charge supply Relay, this will connect the Second Battery to the Main Battery only when the Engine is Running. The reason we do this is to prevent the Car Inverter from using the power in the Main Battery, if you don’t… You could find yourself being unable to Start your Vehicle, when you want to drive off.
Make sure you secure and cover the terminals of the Second Battery, to prevent accidents, we had to sort a vehicle where the user dropped a spanner across the Second Battery Terminals, this caused a Major Short. Use one of our Battery Boxes, to keep the Second Battery safe.
Do you need extra battery power? Need to charge power tools? Run devices in your Camper? Then consider our Split Charge System!
Split Charge System, is where we use a high powered relay, to take the output power from the Alternator, then split this to charge two or more Batteries.
The picture above shows, a Split Charge System setup in the back of a Volkswagen T5, used by a Camera Crew, they needed to charge their equipment, when not in use. We installed the Split Charge System, then made a neat housing to put everything in. As you can see we also added an Inverter, this will use the standard DC Voltage, from the second Battery,in this case 12 Volts, then covert it to 240 Volts at 1000 Watts, enough power to run small mains devices, like TV’s Etc.
The other point to consider, using a Split Charge System, will allow you to use all the power from the Second Battery, without drawing power from the Main Battery, so when its comes to starting the vehicle, you will not have a flat Main Battery, or a non start situation! Hopefully the diagram below will help you understand the Idea. Our Split Charge Systems, start from as little as £150 + VAT.
