Arrow SALE: Onboard Power Supply from AAC- Keep your Camaro fully charged at shows!

For a limited time get $50 off!

Retail= $119... SALE= just $69!

Order Here: http://www.automotivelightstore.com/30APS-1.aspx

Details:


How it works:
This inverter allows you to plug your car into any outlet to keep a constant charge which is great for car shows where you have lots of lighting or accessories operating for several hours at a time. Simply connect the "input" to the included power plug and the "output" to your vehicles battery.

Lastly, use the rubber gasket in the spare tire well to route out your power plug:

That looks like exactly what I'm looking for! But the only problem is that most of the car shows that I go to do not have an outlet where the cars are parked... but is it possible to where I can plug it in when I'm at home and then use it at the show without plugging it in anywhere?

I think your alternator does that for you on the way to the show. This is for keeping the battery charged with the car not running, so you can leave the show without a jump start.

So, theoretically, I could use this contraption to plug into a small generator (I'm sure there are some generators that are pure electric and not piston driven) at shows that DON'T have an outlet available, correct? This is perfect.

An electric generator? What does it run off of? I am confused.
This box plugs into the wall, then your battery doesn't die. If you want a portable power supply that you can charge up and take with you, it's called a battery.

For car shows outdoors, ground outlets aren't available. By bringing a small generator (that could be charged at home ahead of time), we could plug this male side of the power supply that AAC is selling into the female side of the generator, we could keep the car LED's on without worry of draining our battery in the trunk. Basically, you would be using the generator to mimic the role of a ground outlet at an indoor car show.

Hmm, could be. I'll have to do some more research to figure out the possibilities. Thanks.

I have a technical question. If you're at a large car show that requires the battery cable to be disconnected, is there a way to bypass the battery to still power any LEDs?

Yes, if this is connected you do not need the battery physically connected because this is powering the lights.

In the diagram, you have this feeding into the battery. Would you directly wire lights to the unit instead of hooking into the battery?

I basically would want to power my RGB halos and Hawkeye grill, but they're both tied into the OEM harnesses. It sounds like I haven't planned ahead for bypassing the battery and using this unit :(

It's basically a battery tender AKA "trickle" charger. Converts 120AC to 12DC and constantly charges the battery while you're running all your AAC gadgets and goodies.

Granted, a 30 amp, nuclear-powered, trickle charger...

You connect the wires to the battery connectors so even when the battery is disconnected you are still powering the car. Granted, it will not run the stereo or other high-draw devices but will handle any lights just fine

Yes, very similar to a big trickle charger

Oh I see, I would disconnect power and ground from the battery terminals and hook them into your power supply instead.
