FAQs

Can I buy a system directly from Volta? Where do I get pricing information?

Volta Power Systems are only available new through OEMs or for retrofit on an existing vehicle through our authorized network of retrofit dealers for both RVs and worktrucks. Find OEM partners here, and retrofit dealers here.

 

Can I buy just your Alternator? Or can I buy just one of your Storage Packs?

Unfortunately, no. Volta equipment is sold only as part of a complete system through authorized retrofitters and new from our OEM partners.

 

Do you offer a 12-Volt version of your system to work with my 12-Volt equipment?

Through our DC converter, you can count on our system to run any 12V appliances or lighting installed in your vehicle. However, we do not offer a 12V version of the Volta storage system, nor will our energy storage pack or alternator work well with an existing 12V energy storage system. We designed our system around a 58V standard to deliver higher performance and longer life than traditional lead acid systems or competing 12V li-ion systems.

 

What’s the difference between Automotive Grade and Consumer Grade?

While there are actually seven common types of lithium ion batteries on the market. Most of the systems for vehicle auxiliary power are lithium iron phosphate or LFP batteries working at a traditional 12 volts. This common chemistry is also found across a range of consumer electronics including phones, toys, general consumer products and lead acid replacement batteries. We refer to these as Consumer Grade.

Volta systems utilize a different chemistry, Nickel Manganese Cobalt or NMC, which is the same lithium ion chemistry used to power electric and hybrid vehicles like the Chevy Volt or Tesla Model S. More than just a different chemistry, Volta leverages deep experience in a multi-billion dollar automotive industry to ensure our systems are safer and perform better than any competitor. We call this Automotive Grade.
