Travelling with a young family, we paired Scott's Volkswagen Amarok with The Lithium Box 100/40 "Barista"
The Lithium Box 100/40 Barista is a powerful, portable Lithium Battery System, capable of running small household appliances. It's recharged via the vehicle whilst driving, by Scott's Solar Blanket when parked off-the-grid and when on mains power at a caravan park or at home in storage, with a pre-programmed Victron IP65 15A Bluetooth 240V Charger.
