We love getting off-grid and still having all the luxuries of a powered site; hair dryer, straightener, coffee machine, induction cook top, air fryer, Thermomix and even air conditioning/heating … all with no power connected to the van? Yes please. How do we do this? With a full off-grid Enerdrive Lithium Battery system in both our caravan and 4WD. We also have the Simarine Digital Monitoring System
 
Enerdrive delivers Independent and Mobile Power Solutions Including Power Inverters, Battery Chargers, Solar Power & Lithium Power Systems.

These boards are designed & built by the Enerdrive Production Team.  They have a large range of options and a solutions configured to fit in different spaces and to meet any need; some are scaled up in terms of charge rate or functionality and some are scaled back.  Enerdrive has no limitation.  The only limitation is budget.

OUR SYSTEM (Titanium SS Hardcore) consists of:

ePower DC2DC Charger  Part# EN3Dc40+  –   Capable of producing in excess of 40 amp per hour while traveling and supporting up to 800watts of solar.

ePower Battery Charger Part# EN31240  –   Charge at a rate of 40 amps per hour via mains power or generator.  This is by far the most efficient charger on the market.  Meaning it will run from smaller generators than other chargers. 

ePower Inverter Part# EN1120S-X  –   Suitable for running 240V household appliances rated to up to 2000W. Complete with remote switch & RCD (Dead Man switch just like the one you have in the meter box at home). This will soon be upgraded to a 2600W so we can run the air fryer!

Simarine Battery Monitoring   –   Numerous parts contribute to this solution.  However the key parts in our build are SI-PICO3 (Screen), SI-SCQ25T (4 individual shunts to display 4 individual loads such as fridge, lights etc) & the SI-SC301 (Main shunt which allows for the entire load display). This system is viewable via the Simarine App suitable for Android and IOS devices. 

Solar Array

Enerdrive 720 Watt Solar array Part# SP-EN180W  We run 4 x 180 watt solar panels on the roof. These are a high quality Enerdrive solar panels perfect for the rugged conditions we experience in the Australian Outback.

Battery System

BTEC 400AH Lithium Battery Capacity Part#EPL-200BT-12V-G2  –  Qty 2 pieces.  Totaling 400AH.   Including the free Enerdrive Bluetooth App suitable for monitoring the status of each individual battery. This system can be set up with either 1 x 200AH BTEC Lithium or 2 x 200AH BTEC Lithium totaling 400AH like ours.   All of the AGM boards including ours are also suitable for AGM Batteries assuming Lithium is not required.

Key benefits of Btec Lithium:

  •   Weight & Space.  The savings are incredible.   A BTEC200AH weighs in at 25KG….. A comparable AGM battery bank at 320AH totaling in excess of 95KG.
  • Lithium charges faster than any other battery on the market.  In fact, they can receive a bulk charge until full, unlike an AGM system which would begin to slow down the charge rate after the battery exceed approximately 75 – 80 % .  The last stage of charging on an AGM can in some cases take longer than the entire charge process of a Lithium Battery.
  • They are also exceptional for discharge.  They handle big loads which is why we can easily run our air con, coffee machine, Thermomix, kettle, toaster & induction cook top.
