PAC helps batteries charge through the cold

Purkeys, a company focused on providing electrical solutions for the heavy-duty trucking industry, has developed the 100 amp Pack Accelerated Charger (PAC™) to quickly and safely charge batteries in nearly half the time of other chargers.
The PAC is an excellent solution to help fleets keep their batteries at a good state of charge during cold winter months.

It is well known that cold weather makes it harder to crank a motor. This, added to the extra loads from heaters and other equipment, can strain heavy-duty vehicle batteries.

Using the PAC is an excellent way for fleets to keep batteries at a high state of charge. This 100 amp continuous charger is compatible with AGM and flooded cell batteries. It also shows how long it will take batteries to charge, based on voltage and number of batteries being charged. 

The PAC has the ability to charge up to eight batteries simultaneously without removing them from the vehicle. Because the PAC is a 100 amp continuous charger, it decreases recharge time, which can be especially nice during winter. 

The PAC is a tool that every fleet can benefit from because it keeps batteries charged and trucks on the road.
