Solar and Dual Batteries

Vital for any vehicle that will be travelling long distances or heading to remote areas of Australia, a dual battery will ensure you’re not stranded when you can least afford it.

Dual battery systems will integrate with your camper, caravan or solar panels to run your vehicle, as well as your appliances…and let’s face it, today’s campers mostly like to have all the accessories fit for modern travelling!

Installing a dual battery means you won’t compromise your main starting battery when running these other appliances, such as your fridge, airconditioning, computers etc.


Our friendly team are your local 4x4 and offroading battery experts, and can recommend and install a product from leading Australian brands who specialise in charging your remote travel.  

Using solar to provide charge to your dual battery is also a great way to go…after all, we have an abundance of sunshine in Australia!

These systems can be complex to install, but we have the knowledge and expertise to ensure your solar and dual battery will give you days, or even months, of stress-free exploration!    


Excellent customer service 10/10!, very helpful and honest. So happy we have found a great mechanical business after moving to Cairns end of last year. Can't praise you guys enough, you will be looking after our 2 cars from now onwards! Thanks again!  Zeta Mackie
