Rostra Accessories (Aberdeen, North Carolina)
announced they have partnered with VOXX Electronics Corporation to launch their VOXX Power Systems™
(VPS), an intelligent battery-backup system for fleet and automotive industries giving the fleet owner the power they need, when they need it most, allowing them to jump-start their vehicles from the comfort of the driver’s seat. It eliminates the need to rely on roadside assistance or traditional jumper cables or jump-packs.
“Twenty eight percent of drivers will experience a dead battery sometime in their driving and traditional products require either roadside assistance or using jumper cables from another vehicle. These solutions are not ideal since roadside assistance can take upwards of an hour and a half and jumping the battery puts the driver in harm’s way from either weather elements or other drivers. VOXX’s new Power Systems solve all of these issues and are operated from the safety and convenience of the driver’s seat,” said Aron Demers, Senior Vice President, VOXX Electronics Corporation.
VOXX Power Systems, a patent-pending innovation, is the solution to overcoming the deficiencies of similar products in the market. Most jump-start products today are portable in design but rely heavily on the end-user ensuring their tool is sufficiently charged to facilitate a jump-start when needed. In most cases, these products are left at home or in the vehicle exposed to the heat for extended periods of time where the batteries can swell and burst and/or lose their charge, greatly hindering their effectiveness. The compactness of the VOXX Power Systems is designed to be installed in a vehicle’s trunk, cabin, or under the seat, connected directly to the battery, and continually charged with the help of a custom battery charger circuit and automotive grade components that charge only when the vehicle’s engine is running. Further, VPS uses propriety methodology to extend battery lifetime.
Today’s technological advancements allow control of the system with the touch of a button using a Bluetooth®-enabled smartphone. In the event the user’s phone is unavailable, a large, easily accessible “Jump” button is located on the physical unit.
