When you’re a long way from shore it’s important to know how much power your electrical systems have left. Mastervolt offers a variety of battery monitors to ensure you’re never surprised by a dead battery. All monitors display performance, consumption, and available battery capacity, while more sophisticated systems also allow you to monitor other key data.
For most boaters, one of the following solutions should meet your needs.
- BattMan Lite: An affordable option that displays information about your remaining power supply.
- Battman Pro: Does everything the BattMan Lite does, while also letting you know how long until your battery needs to be recharged.
Alternators and Solar Charge Regulators
If you’re planning a multi-day trip then you’ll likely need your own energy source to ensure you can keep recharging your batteries. Mastervolt has two options for you to choose from:
- Alternators: These work by turning your engine’s mechanical energy into electrical energy, which can then be used by your batteries. An alternator is a very reliable way to keep your batteries charged.
- Solar Charge Regulators: Solar panels are another energy source that can be used by boaters. Mastervolt’s solar charge regulators integrate with your solar panels and compliment your energy system. They help you maximize your energy yield, as sunlight can often be inconsistent.
