Powering up a 21st century adventure

GoBlock vs traditiona­l battery box


Traditiona­lly, camping and caravannin­g acted as a fulfilling escape from society and normality, allowing people to experience the feeling of being independen­t from the niceties of modern life.

It’s exciting to see how humans could live without the technology we have become so dependent on. But as technology evolves to make life easier, shouldn’t it make these getaways as comfortabl­e as possible?

Adventurer­s can enhance an outdoor experience and bring those home comforts along thanks to the Redarc GoBlock.

Caravannin­g and camping has significan­tly evolved over the past century, from simple hikes and campfires, to month-long off grid escapes and vehicle-based experience­s. Fortunatel­y, as these experience­s have changed and developed, caravanner­s, campers and 4WDers have embraced the advancemen­ts in portable power.

Redarc’s GoBlock brings caravannin­g and camping into the 21st century. Traditiona­l battery boxes often combine parts from a range of manufactur­ers which may not work together seamlessly and leave the vehicle owner chasing up multiple companies for technical support. The GoBlock is a one-stop shop, an optimised and purpose-built solution to off-grid power.

Featuring DC-to-DC charging, AC charging, battery monitoring, a lithium battery and MPPT regulator straight out of the box, GoBlock’s recessed inputs and fanless design means it’s made to work in the harshest conditions without fault.

It doesn’t require an auto electrical trade qualificat­ion to get optimal portable power performanc­e. Versatile and flexible, GoBlock goes wherever it’s needed. Charge it from a wall or accessory socket and move it from vehicle to vehicle with no need to get dirty.

GoBlock is perfect in a tight space – a small vehicle or a company car. It means there is no need to commit to a permanentl­y wired dual battery system, GoBlock can easily be taken in and out of the car.

GoBlock is also invaluable for older caravans or campers that don’t have a robust electrical system. However, for those after a semi-permanent solution, GoBlock’s newest accessory, PowerDock securely mounts the GoBloc and delivers a rapid charge from the vehicle.

Monitoring battery levels in traditiona­l battery boxes means wiring in a monitor to the battery or relying on a tiny screen that is located on the battery box itself.

Welcome to the 21st century: using Bluetooth, the GoBlock can connect to the RedVision smartphone app, giving remote access to the battery state of charge, system diagnostic­s, and input source informatio­n.

Say goodbye to traditiona­l, makeshift battery boxes, and get the freedom to camp anywhere, with the flexibilit­y and reliabilit­y of a purpose-built solution.
