Ring is starting its 50th birthday year with a flurry of activities, the first of which is the launch of a new product for the market.
While the RPPL1000 jump starter for 12V systems has only been on the market for six months, Ring has introduced the RPPL3000 to accommodate 12V and 24V systems.
The RPPL3000 Lithium Professional Jump Starter is suitable for workshops and recovery vehicles, as it’s ideal for all petrol vehicles and 24V diesel vehicles up to 13-litre due to its high power and auto voltage detection.
This jump starter can be used on 4x4s, cars, vans, motorcycles, commercial vehicles and even boats. Helpfully, it has a built-in LED work light, allowing users to work in darker conditions, it’s also lightweight, only weighing 5.6kg, which is 75 percent lighter than equivalent lead acid jump starters, making it more mobile and easy to use.
Other features include a 12V DC port and USB port to charge mobile devices, as well as reverse polarity protection and over-voltage protection. The over-voltage protection means that when the jumpstarter is being recharged, the unit will disconnect from the charger and stop allowing charge to flow in once it’s fully charged and it will also stop adding charge if the voltage in the battery starts to increase too much.
Marketing director for Ring, Henry Bisson, said: “We think it’s important to provide technicians with as much choice as possible: if they work in a workshop that only sees cars, then the new RPPL3000 will still get use, but they will not be using all of the features available, so perhaps we’d suggest the RPPL1000, which is specifically for 12V vehicles.
“However, if they are unsure of what vehicle they’ll be working on from one day to the next, maybe working in a mixed fleet depot, then the RPPL3000 gives them the flexibility they need when they need to jumpstart a vehicle.
“We’re extremely pleased with all of the features the RPPL3000 offers technicians. Being lightweight, it can be easily carried around a forecourt and will do multiple jumpstarts before needing to be recharged.
“For personal and practical reasons, the RPPL3000 provides the ability to charge a phone or light up an area, if they are out on the road, for example. As it’s likely that all these key features will be needed, we make sure our products are able to provide a multitude of benefits, not just one.”
SRP for the RPPL3000 is £649.99
