NEW and exclusive to PPT – PowerBlock 1500 Designed to bring all the benefits of lithium battery storage into a vehicle based aux power system, the PowerBlock is slim, robust and easily and securely installed. Utilising LiFePO4 lithium battery technology, the PowerBlock provides 1500 watt hour of high energy storage in a compact and lightweight package.
Clean and silent power wherever and whenever you want it AGM and conventional lead acid batteries limit depth of discharge, heavy and are sensitive to fast charging that quickly reduces life. Our new PowerBlock allows conventional 12Vdc batteries to be replaced with a solution that can deliver as much as 10x the cycle life, fast charging capability, 40% reduction in weight and a smaller profile.
Using Lithium battery technology (LiFePO4) the PowerBlock provides high energy density, higher usable watt hour capacity, fast charging capability and high cycle life – all major advantages especially in a service vehicle where kerb weight and engine run adds to a higher fuel consumption and increased pollution.
Protected in a strong metal case and with an easy to fit hold down system, the PowerBlock is designed to be quickly and safely deployed into service vehicles.
As well as conventional high current connection posts the PowerBlock also boasts extra ports to provide flexible DC power distribution. 2 x 50A anderson connectors provide for input from solar (via a suitable regulator) or DC-DC charger, 2 x USB ports (2.1A each) for mobile device charging and a 12Vdc 10A automotive socket to allow easy connection with off the shelf 12Vdc appliances.
The PowerBlock utilises a 250A battery management system (BMS) providing a 250A MAX discharge current capability and continuous rating of 200A allowing for connection to a suitable power inverter (12V-230V) or inverter-charger up to around 2300W (3000W for 5 mins) For more detailed monitoring we would recommend the BMV700 The PowerBlock is easily fast charged using a suitable AC charger (14.6V up to 100A) or via an in vehicle charging solution such as the Redarc BCDC1250D – call us for options.
