“Many customers find it hard to believe that such a small unit can be so powerful.”

When Victorian solar installer, Jerry Robinson owner of The Green House Effect, was approached with a unique challenge he responded accordingly. “I was asked if I wanted to support a Hollywood A-lister (when they came to Victoria for a motorcycle tour) by designing a mobile power system to go into their support vehicle,” explains Jerry Robinson. “After all, no one wants an instant coffee when they’re on the road,” says Jerry “Only real coffee from a real coffee machine please!”

In response to this challenge Jerry developed the mobile power unit (shown here in the back of his vehicle) which incorporates the SimpliPhi PHI3.4 Lithium Ferrous Phosphate battery and the Victron MultiPlus inverter/charger. This mobile power unit has now become an invaluable tool for Jerry’s business who uses it in three distinct ways:

  • Powering his worksite, including charging power tools,
  • Powering his customer’s home if their current system need to be removed for repair or service,
  • Silent salesperson: the power of demonstration is a great sales tool!

With the SimpliPhi battery as part of their kit, the trend towards mobile homes and mobile businesses offers huge opportunities for solar installers. The applications are endless: coffee vans, food trucks, dog groomers, music DJs, mobile mechanics.

SimpliPhi truly is the ultimate RV and caravan battery. Because of the incredible energy and power density of SimpliPhi batteries, the “mobile movement” is their shining moment.
