Arctic Fox Battery Warmers utilize hot engine coolant to provide heat beneath your batteries. Warm batteries accept a charge quicker and more completely than cold batteries do. So after a days worth of driving or working your equipment your battery's state of charge will be higher than if it was cold all day long. This means that when you go to start your engine the next, cold morning, you'll have more power available than you would if your battery was cold during the charging cycle.
What are the benefits of battery heating in cold weather? Less deep cycling, longer battery life, more confidence that your equipment will start during adverse weather conditions, and less load on your charging system, also possibly extending the the life of your alternator, starter motor & solenoid.
Today's Over-The-Road trucks also have many power hungry options. Keeping the vehicle batteries fully charged will possibly lengthen the time these devices can be operated before having to start the engine to recharge the batteries. In the current economy, fuel savings, staying "GREEN" and anti-idling regulations all have their impact. keeping your batteries in top condition is important.
If you're running an APU, or Fuel Fired Heater, these products will help to maintain battery temperature with your engine off, extending the time maximum power is available, and assuring that the batteries will be re-charge ready when the charging system comes back on line.
