Off Grid Power Management Consultation

Here’s an equation that will prove really useful when considering what battery power and charging you’ll need in your campervan;

Volts (the strength of power supplied via your battery) times by Amps (The rate of current along your electrical wire) = Watts (The amount of power required to run an appliance)

Volts x Amps = Watts

12 Volt x 4 Amps = 48 Watts

Similarly, 48 watts/12 volts = 4 Amps

This equation will help us identify the essence of your daily power consumption, from that daily consumption calculation it’s possible to create a power fulfilment plan based on how, where and when you plan to travel. Incorporating, solar, split charge and 240v power options.

Everyone building a campervan has a budget – regardless of what that maybe. Therefore getting the most for your money is obviously important. It’s vital to remember that your power requirements are unique to you and your use of the van.
