Battery charger

InPower introduces the 100 percent solid state Auxiliary Battery Switch (ABS)/ Electronic Battery Separator. The ABS is designed to charge an auxiliary battery and isolate it from the vehicle’s chassis battery and alternator. The next-generation patented technology is intended to replace diode-based battery isolators and mechanical solenoid-type battery separators and isolators. Because the ABS is bidirectional, a charging device such as a battery charger connected to the auxiliary battery can supply charging current to the chassis battery. InPower’s ABSs are available in 100, 150, 175, and 200 amp models.

Batons provide a wide range of enforcement options from less-lethal presence of authority uses to lethality, if justified.
