Solar panel and controller kit prevents over & under charging of dormant seasonal vehicle batteries
SALT LAKE CITY – Jan. 23, 2013 – Goal Zero, the leader in portable solar, today announced the Guardian Charge Controller Kit to protect and extend RV, ATV, boat and other seasonal 12V vehicle battery life during the offseason. The Guardian charge controller passes a charge from the accompanying Goal Zero solar panel to ensure the battery is not over or under charged and is ready to go on the first day of the season.
“It’s extremely frustrating when your snowmobile or jet ski that you’ve been itching to ride for 7-8 month won’t start or you’re ready to hit the road but the RV won’t crank,” said Joe Atkin, CEO Goal Zero. “The Guardian Kit uses the sun’s free rays all offseason to ensure your battery is ready to roll when you are and protects consumers from the high costs of battery replacement.”
The Guardian Kit is truly plug and play – the Nomad 13 or Boulder 15 solar panel simply plugs into one of the Guardian Charge Controller’s two inputs, the included alligator clips plug into the Guardian’s output port and then attach to the corresponding red and black terminals on the battery. After hooking up the Guardian users can walk away confident that their vehicle will start next season.
