WHAT HAPPENS IF THE BATTERY RUNS OUT OF POWER (CHARGE)?
The Oceanvolt display continuously shows the charge level in real time. Should you run low on battery power, you can use the regeneration function while sailing. Some customers have chosen to have a small portable generator (these can run on LPG or gasoline) on board to recharge the battery bank or to use as a temporary range extender. For larger boats Oceanvolt recommends a hybrid system which includes a permanent DC generator - this enables enjoyment of all of the benefits of the electric motor system without compromising on range.
