Here at Battle Born Batteries, we believe in the power of giving back to several charitable causes, and Wounded Warriors in Action is one of them. Founded by Retired Army officer John McDaniel in 2007, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit serves combat-wounded, Purple Heart recipients by providing the opportunity for them to get outdoors. You can read our first blog entry on our partnership with the organization here.
About the WWIA Airstream Install:
The team at Future Solutions was instrumental in creating an arrangement to improve the quality of life for anyone traveling and working in the trailer. Future Solutions worked on the design and layout of a system that would be cost-effective, save storage space and fulfill all the energy needs that may come into play when traveling.
As the Airstream doubles as a “Mobile HQ,” the WWIA team can visit veterans and Heroes from coast to coast and assist in helping them get out there and stay out there. John now visits event sites and key supporters without needing to rely on a noisy generator when taking trips out into nature with fellow veterans.
Here’s what’s powering the Airstream:
- 6 Battle Born BBGC2 Batteries
- 1 Victron 30A Solar Charge Controller
- 1 Victron 50A Solar Charge Controller
- 1 Victron Cerbo GX w/Touch 50
- 1 Victron Multiplus 12V 3000W inverter/charger
- 1 Victron SmartShunt Battery Monitor
- 1 Micro-Air Soft Start
While having a solar array of 875W on the roof, he has the added ability to hook up a portable array for some extra energy.
“Our team was very excited to help construct and install an energy system allowing John and his team to stay off-grid while traveling to meet other organizational leaders helping the mission,” said Courtney Harris, head of marketing at Future Solutions.
