Today’s campers are demanding more power for their sites.
To help you get the most out of your Rover Lithium Power Stations, we’ve put together a list of frequently asked questions.
Rover Lithium 70Ah & 40Ah
1. How long will my Rover Power Station run a fridge for?
The run time depends on ambient conditions & fridge set temperature.
70Ah: In general, the Rover 70Ah will power a fridge for 48 hours without any assistance.
40Ah: Generally, the Rover Lithium 40Ah Power Station will power a fridge for 36 hours without any assistance.
2. Can I use multiple power outlet sockets at the same time?
Yes, you can use all of the outlet sockets at the same time as long as you don’t exceed the rated output of each circuit. Please be mindful that this also will flatten the power station faster.
3. Can I operate 2 portable fridges at the same time?
70Ah: Yes - You can use the 2-pin socket & cigarette socket at the same time to power 2 separate fridges. When doing this we recommend using solar to keep the power station charged.
40Ah: Yes, you can use the 50A Anderson socket and cigarette socket at the same time to power 2 separate fridges. When doing this we recommend using solar to keep the power station charged.
4. Can I charge the Power Station while I'm using it?
Yes, we always recommend that you have solar/AC connected to charge the power station when in use, especially if you are operating a fridge or more.
5. How do I connect the solar?
Please connect your UNREGULATED solar panel to the 30a Anderson power pole connection using the adaptor lead provided.
6. How accurate is the display?
The display is accurate when the power pack has very little load on it. If a fridge compressor is running, the display will read less than what charge is actually in the battery.
7. How many cycles can I expect from the power station?
70Ah: The Rover 70Ah Power Station will cycle 800 times without any reduction in capacity.
40Ah: The Rover 40Ah Power Station will cycle 2000 times without any reduction in capacity.
8. Does the Rover 70Ah Power station have a built-in solar controller/regulator?
70Ah: Yes - the Rover Lithium 70Ah Power Station has a built in MPPT controller rated at 12A max current. This will handle up to a 220W solar charger.
40Ah: Yes – the Rover Lithium 40Ah Power Station has a built in MPPT controller rated at 5A max current. This will handle up to a 120W solar charger in perfect conditions.
NOTE – Using a solar charger that generates more current (amps) than what the controller is rated to wont damage anything, it just means that only up to 12A will flow through the Rover 70Ah controller & up to 5A will flow through the Rover 40Ah controller.
9. Can I overcharge my Power station?
No. We recommend charging the power station every three months (min) using the AC adaptor if not in use. Further to this, we suggest a full charge overnight before leaving on a trip to ensure longest runtime.
10. Does the Rover 70Ah Power station have to be upright?
70Ah: No. This power station can lay down if required, although care should be taken that no buttons are accidently pressed.
40Ah: No. This power station can lay down if required, although care should be taken that no buttons are accidentally pressed.
