A Kickass Redback is a pack of Absorbed Glass Mat Batteries all housed in a rugged box specifically designed for Camping and 4WD's. They come equipped with a range of outlets, leads, plugs, fittings and safety features that give them multiple uses for example: Power 12 volt refrigerators, lighting, and phone and laptop charging etc. They can be charged from your car battery while driving and power your campsite overnight. They have a massive spike protected jumpstarting capability and can be recharged from 240 volt power, generators and Kickass solar panels.
The Kickass Redback range is designed to take the place of, or even work alongside a dual battery system in the vehicle, boat etc. They are the perfect option for those who would like to have the freedom of a portable dual battery system that can be easily seperated from the vehicle, or who have no space for a traditional dual battery system. Most commonly used for powering 12 volt refrigerators and lighting, applications stretch only as far as your imagination.
Yes! Jump starting with the Kickass Redback range is perfectly safe for both the unit and your vehicle. The Kickass Redback range is completely spike protected which means that you will not incur any of those nasty voltage spikes which could potentially fry a vehicle's internal circuits and cause you thousands of dollars in vehicle repairs. Will the Kickass Redback start my diesel? Yes! Each of the Thumper units hold a differing CA output, which means that the cranking ability varies between the sizes of each unit. Refer to specifications section for the cranking abilities of each Thumper model.
Each Kickass Redback unit Has an AGM battery which consists of multiple 12 Volt AGM cells (Absorbed Glass Matt) linked together in parallel for super fast recharge time. The batterys are 100% maintenance free and will not leak or gas when charging; perfect for use inside the vehicle or enclosed areas. The AGM batteries allow for not only deep cycling but they additionally allow for the massive cranking ability. The cells like to charge at a voltage rate between 13 - 14 Volts, which means that they are fully capable of charging via the supplied vehicle charging kit.
The condition of the cells can be checked by pressing the push button on the front of the unit to illuminate the blue LED display gauge.. The gauge has an extremely low power draw and can be left on if require to monitor the Kickass Redback’s condition. If left illuminated the gauge will draw approx 1 Amp over a 14 day period.
No.The AGM batteries are completely sealed, meaning that you will not have to worry about the cells leaking acid, fuses, gases or any nasty odours. Due to the fact the batteries are completely sealed, it allows for the batteries to be stored on any one of their sides even upside-down while working to full efficiency.
Yes. Considering that the batteries are completely sealed it means that the batteries do not require a ventilated area for storage. This results in the perfect battery to have stored in an out of the way area such as under a bed in a caravan, under a vehicle's seat, or even in a box in the back of your 4WD.
Unlike many batteries on the market the Kickass Redback does not hold a ‘memory’. This means that at any stage, regardless of the state of charge, the Thumper may be recharged or discharged without affecting the life of the unit. Kickass Redbacks have a lifespan of approximately 5-7 years after which the units can be re-packed and given a brand new 2 year warranty.
Yes. All units are supplied with a complete charging system for the vehicle or boat. Your Kickass Redback will be supplied with a 20 Amp In Vehicle Charging System. When installed correctly this will allow for a recharge time of 2 – 3 hours. Your vehicles starting battery will never go flat as it automatically isolated from the Kickass Redback when your starter battery is fully charged the Kickass Redback starts charging. The charging kit is designed to be hard mounted into the vehicle and can provide a charge rate of up to 20 Amps depending on the unit’s requirements and the vehicle’s alternator. Your Kickass Redback can be continuously connected to the vehicle charging kit without risk whilst simultaneously providing power for on-board accessories (for example – car fridge) if desired. (We do not recommend charging the unit straight from a vehicle's cigarette socket, as the unit will never reach full charge.)
YES! This is the perfect way to use your Kickass Redback. All connections on the Kickass Redback may be used for recharging or discharging. In fact batteries enjoy being charged and discharged at the same time, as long as the voltage does not drop below 10.5 volts.
Your Kickass Redback can be charged from 240 Volt however, the charger MUST be regulated or automatic to ensure that the cells are not damaged if accidentally left for extended periods. Simply connect the alligator clamps of your regulated or automatic charger to the Kickass Redback via the 175A Anderson connector (Positive to the positive terminal, negative to the negative terminal). For an accurate reading of your Kickass Redback’s state of charge wait for 30 minutes after disconnecting from the charger as this will allow time for any “surface charge” to fade.
YES! We recommend putting a regulated battery charger between the generator and your unit for a faster recharge and to protect you batteries from the spikes that can occur with Generators inbuilt charge outputs.
Yes. Solar panels can be used for charging and/or maintaining the Kickass Redback battery packs. Keep in mind that solar panels that are rated at 10 watts or higher must be regulated when connected to any type of battery. This will prevent the solar panel from over-charging the battery and potentially causing damage. See our wide range of panels available from this store!
Yes, it will and many other appliances also! One of the main accessories people use with the Kickass Redbacks are 12/240Volt compressor type fridges. As the batteries are deep cycle it allows for the running of accessories even while the battery is charging, whether through vehicle charging, Solar or even 240 Volt. The Kickass Redbacks are designed for running the new compresser style fridges. We do not recommend running old-style heater element style fridges for prolonged durations due to the high power draw (approx 12 + Amps per hour).
Yes. We now offer a range of inverters which allows the Kickass Redbacks 12 Volt power to be converted into 240 Volts for the running of 240Volt appliances. Inverters come in a variety of sizes ranging from 150 watts at 240 Volts through to 3000 watts or more. These units will allow for the running of appliances such a laptop computers, recharging phone and camera batteries to even running TV's, DVD players or even powering tools such as drills and 4 inch angle grinders!
The duration of time that the Kickass Redback will last with running accessories such as a fridge largely depends on the amp draw of the appliance in question. For example: a fridge with an average draw of 1 amp per hour would run for 30 hours with a 30 amp hour unit.
An Amp hour is a unit of measurment for battery capacity. It measures the current flow in amperes (amps) by the time in hours of discharge. If a battery holds 60 Amp Hours (AH) and you discharged the unit using a fluorescent light that draws 1 Amp per hour the battery would last for a duration of 60 hours before needing recharging.
To work out the size you need simply multiply the average amp per hour draw of your fridge by the amount of hours you want your fridge to run for. Take into account that if you are driving a little every day your unit will be recharging i.e 1 hour of driving you will have put 25% charge back into your battery. Feel free to call us on for help choosing the correct battery size on the number at the top of your screen.
The AGM cells used in the Kickass Redback range have a life expectancy between 5 - 9 years. The life of the Kickass Redback range largely depends on the method in which the unit is charged. Over 10 years on the market has proved that the life expectancy of the units increase when the units are charged via the provided In car charging kit. When the unit is not in use (discharged regularly), the best method of maintaining the battery is leaving the unit connected to its In Car kit. This maintains the battery and aids in prolonging the life of the cells used in the battery pack. Battery life can be prolonged by keeping it maintained by using a 240 volt charger such as the Powertrain 30 amp battery charger.
Yes, If it is the same type size and rated amp hour battery. You can also have your old AGM Battery repacked.
Although the Kickass Redback range offers a 2 year warranty and has a life expectancy between 5 - 9 years. We offer our customers the chance to have their unit repacked when the cells do eventually die out! Once a customer has paid for a repack we offer our customers a new 2-year manufacturer warranty on the unit from the date of repack.
The Kickass Redback range is proudly South Australian made and owned. Each unit is hand made from start to finish to produce the best portable dual battery system with the highest cranking ability available on market!
