Volta Power Systems announced the launch of retrofit lithium ion power systems through a strategic partnership with Holland Motor Homes. Volta’s automotive-grade lithium ion technology was previously only available to RV OEMs, however through the strategic partnership with Holland Motor Homes, RV owners can now upgrade their current RVs.
“Several RV owners have expressed a desire to retrofit their RVs with a safer, more powerful energy solution,” said Jack Johnson, co-founder of Volta. “We worked to find a trusted, strategic partner to integrate the complete Volta system into existing RVs to fulfill the need.”
One RV owner who approached Volta Power Systems about retrofitting was Robby Coyle. Coyle recently purchased a 38’, 2017 Thor Outlaw. After a close call with carbon monoxide from a generator, Coyle made the decision to invest in a Volta Power System. “I purchased the RV to travel our country’s national parks with my family and pets, but didn’t feel comfortable running the generator or leaving my dogs in the RV,” said Coyle. “ Volta’s products are the future in safety for RV.”
Volta uses tested, automotive-grade lithium ion technology to provide more energy with less noise, space, weight, and charging time than traditional methods. The energy systems are designed for recreational vehicles, marine applications and specialty commercial vehicles like bucket trucks. Volta systems can charge directly from the engine, eliminating the need for generators and the carbon monoxide risks they bring.
Holland Motor Homes installed a 13.5 KwH Volta pack into the Thor Outlaw. “Working closely with the team at Volta, we completed our first Volta System installation in Mr. Coyle’s RV.” said Scott Vroon, service manager at Holland Motor Homes. “Testing showed 22 hours of runtime, with no generator or shore power hook up.” Tests also showed four hours run time running the entire cabin including two air conditioning units.
“The peace-of-mind the Volta Power System has provided me can’t be overstated. I know that my family and pets are safe,” said Coyle. “I’d choose a mountain view over a concrete campground. With our new system, we have enough power to travel anywhere we want while running our system silently.”
