Purkeys' Solar Dash Charging System Combats the Drain Parasitic Loads Put On Batteries

LOWELL, Ariz., Jan. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Trucks that sit on lots for long periods of time are susceptible to the effects of parasitic loads. Purkeys engineers have created the Solar Dash, an easy to use and portable device that counteracts these parasitic loads.

The Solar Dash is Purkeys' new supplemental solar charging system that keeps vehicle batteries at a good state of charge when the truck is not in operation. The 20W solar panel plugs in to a 12V port, allowing dealers and fleets to quickly and effectively keep their trucks batteries at a good state of charge.

This Solar Dash is an effective way to counteract parasitic loads on any heavy-duty vehicle. It can be easily moved from truck to truck to ensure battery charge is maintained on any vehicle - no matter how long it sits. 

Left alone, parasitic loads can drain batteries. But using the Solar Dash Charging System, and taking advantage of the sun's energy, dealers can efficiently maintain their trucks batteries' state of charge; bringing longevity to batteries.


For more than 25 years, Purkeys has delivered innovative, cost-effective solutions for the electrical needs of heavy-duty fleets. They look at the electrical system as a whole, then strategically work to achieve the maximum return on investment while reducing maintenance costs and equipment usage. Their level of expertise has garnered more than 10 U.S. patents and attracted the attention of fleets, OEMs and other industry leaders throughout North America.
