REDARC LAUNCHES WORLD FIRST GOBLOCK
New compact portable dual battery system with ultrafast charging while you drive
REDARC has extended its capability into portable power with the launch of GoBlock, which can be used in a variety of applications that demand remote, vehicle and solar rechargeable portable power.
“GoBlock is the culmination customer feedback and extensive market research relating to the constraints of existing 4WD dual battery systems. This highly engineered product features the latest in REDARCS’ proprietary DC charging technology which takes the guess work out of designing and building your own battery system” REDARC Managing Director, Anthony Kittel, said.
The Australian-made REDARC GoBlock taps into the growing demand for portable and off-grid rechargeable power. The difference, however, is this product is built tough for the outdoors and optimised to be ultrafast charged while you drive.
“I am excited for the owners of Ford Rangers and Mazda BT-50s among others who can’t fit a dual battery system under the bonnet, as this is the perfect solution,” Anthony said.
With USB, accessory, Merit, fridge and Anderson outputs, REDARC says GoBlock is ideal for charging smart devices, phones, cameras, drones, as well as powering lights, compressors, fridges and more.
Featuring lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery cells, REDARC says GoBlock offers 2000 cycles, some four-times greater cycle life than other brands on the market.
The compact unit features an AC charger, DC charger, MPPT solar regulator, battery monitor and the lithium battery itself, all optimised to work flawlessly together and provide a portable auxiliary battery system no matter where you go.
With multiple charging options, GoBlock can be charged via DC input from the vehicle’s alternator while driving, AC or solar while parked and can accept up to 50 Amps from any DC power source utilising REDARC’s trusted DC charging technology, making it capable of charging a 100 Amp hour lithium battery in two hours.
“Using Bluetooth, GoBlock can connect to RedVision, our smartphone app that gives users access to the battery state of charge, system diagnostics, and input source information. This connection also allows GoBlock to receive over-the-air software updates – the first product in our range to do so,” Anthony said.
GoBlock also includes a Start Battery Recovery (SBR) feature. This is unique to GoBlock and when activated via the RedVision app, it enables you to safely recover a flat start battery.
The unit comes in either a 50 or 100Ah models and measures just 425x196x230mm, allowing plenty of space in the vehicle, boat or tent for all the other essentials. Like all REDARC products, GoBlock comes with nation-wide support, including a two-year “hassle free” warranty and after-sales service.
