Lithium technology upgrade designed to reduce heavy-duty fuel costs while powering essential long-haul accessories

Roadwarrior recently introduced LightningVolt, a plug-and-play upgrade to traditional batteries for powering truck APUs (like ParkSmart and KIMS) or power inverters.

The company said it is designed to power essential long-haul accessories like air conditioners, fridges, microwaves, electronics, and more, without running the truck’s engine or a noisy generator. LightningVolt batteries are designed in Canada and built to withstand harsh winters and challenging terrain.

Roadwarrior developed LightningVolt to let drivers use their parked trucks without idling, which negatively impacts fuel consumption and lifespan of aftertreatment components. Lithium batteries are popular with marine and mobile home users, and now LightningVolt provides the heavy-duty market with a long-lasting and reliable upgrade that is suitable for any off-grid application, according to the company.

LightningVolt advantages vs. traditional batteries include:

  • 100Ah battery
  • Lasts 10x longer
  • Direct fit and easy installation
  • Greater depth of discharge
  • Improves fuel and DEF economy
  • Built-In safety for peace of mind
  • Fewer replacements and less downtime
  • Works in freezing temperatures
  • 2x more usable power
