REDARC’s weekend escape battery charging kit is the perfect setup for people wanting to get away for the weekend to explore with friends and family, without missing out on cold drinks, fresh food and a few comforts from home.
This weekend escape dual battery setup offers everything you need if you’re looking to add a secondary battery (75-200AH*) to your vehicle that will allow you to run things like fridges, inverters and other 12v devices.
The 25amp BCDC will help to top-up your batteries (75 to 200AH) while you’re on the move, and features green power priority if you want to add a solar blanket or portable solar panel down the track to help you harness the sun’s energy to get batteries back to 100% charge when you’re setup at camp.*

The inclusion of a dual voltage monitoring gauge means you can always keep a closer eye on your battery performance to ensure you are not over or under voltage when out on the road.
This weekend escape dual battery setup has everything you may need to install into your vehicle before taking off on your next great adventure.
