How does a Slidepod work

Power for your Slidepod

A Slidepod has been designed to use very little power, making it possible to run off just the engine battery alone via a 12v socket (Cigarette lighter type) which are normally located in the rear of your van or in the dash.

A socket can be installed (if required), or a longer lead (3m) can be provided free of charge to allow you to use the dashboard 12v socket if preferred. Alternatively, the Slidepod can be powered from a leisure battery or a portable power pack, such as the EcoFlow Delta
