Volta Power Systems has announced Flex, its newest line of engineered li-ion energy solutions for RV, work truck, and specialty vehicle markets.

The Flex energy storage pack features a redesigned case, heating pads, and a proprietary battery management system (BMS).

Volta said it used user and OE feedback to adapt and add features for improved cold-weather performance, more flexible controls, additional data capabilities, and error-proof connectors for faster installation.

“Customer feedback is the heartbeat of innovation at Volta, and the diversity of industries we serve creates a great opportunity to learn and cross-apply feedback to make our products even stronger,” said Jack Johnson, co-founder and CTO. “Process-based innovation is a lesson hard-learned in our team’s deep automotive industry experience, and Flex is a great example of listening, predicting, and exceeding the needs of customers.”

Flex scales in increments of 3.3 kWh modules with multiple pack sizes, which can work independently or together to meet the needs of virtually any mobile application.

The BMS provides battery monitoring and control for customers while integrating heating solutions that use internal energy to heat the system faster for improved cold-weather performance, along with adaptable IO capability.

“For the Flex, we worked hard to continue improving safety, performance, and reliability that our customers count on,” said Johnson. “We’re grateful to customers for their continued honest feedback and collaborative improvement of our power systems that have allowed us to sustainability grow into the company we are.”
