A battery maker in Holland is releasing a new flagship power system called FLEX.

Holland-based Volta Power Systems last month rolled out FLEX, its newest line of engineered lithium-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 drew on user and Office of Electricity feedback to adapt and add features for improved cold-weather performance, more flexible controls, additional data capabilities and error-proof connectors for faster installation.

The FLEX System

FLEX represents Volta’s complete system, including generation, storage and distribution. As with previous Volta systems, FLEX scales in increments of 3.3 kilowatt-hour modules with multiple pack sizes. These are designed to work independently or together to meet the needs of virtually any mobile application. The system can charge while driving from Volta alternators for under-the-hood generation on most U.S. truck chassis from 6 kW 11 kW. An array of DC converters and AC inverter options can provide 110-volt, 220-volt, or 208-volt three-phase distribution.

“Customer feedback is the heartbeat of innovation at Volta,” said Jack Johnson, co-founder and CTO of Volta Power Systems. “The diversity of industries we serve creates a great opportunity to learn and cross-apply feedback to strengthen our products. 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.”

Volta’s FLEX allows users to take advantage of the latest BMS, enabling an end-to-end software and hardware system supported by Volta’s team. The newest BMS provides enhanced 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 input/output capability.

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

The roll-out of FLEX comes as Volta recently formed a new partnership with Grand Design, a manufacturer of RV towables.

Volta roughly doubled its sales in 2021, expanding its manufacturing space to twice its footprint, and the company projects revenue will double again in 2022.
