Battery Terminal Upgrade for your Project Vehicle

Rugged Rocks battery terminals for aftermarket vehicle electronics

Battery Terminals are an essential piece of the electrical system in any vehicle.. without them, our vehicles simply wouldn’t go anywhere. Off the lot, I’m sure the factory battery terminals work just fine, however, many automotive enthusiasts add stuff. Lots of it. It all takes power and all needs to connect back to the battery somehow.  In the off road world, Jeeps, trucks and other 4×4’s make use of high amperage draw device such as light bars, more light bars, small light bars, large light bars, and winches.  I joke about the light bars… kind of. Then there are other electronics that need a direct connection back to the battery for the cleanest power and promote proper function. These are things like 2-way radios, intercom systems and navigation devices…. sensitive electronics.
But this isn’t limited to off road, often car stereo installers need connection points for high power stereos as well as custom vehicle with wiring harnesses build from scratch.
In all of these cases, you need a better battery terminal that can accomodate multiple large gauge wire connections as well as not leaving out the smaller stuff. meanwhile, keeping a small, clean, and compact form factor. This is when you bridge over from a regular battery terminal with a single connection and into the world of a battery terminal distribution blocks. The battery terminal blocks avaiable from Rugged Rocks have 3 larger connection points for your high amperage connections for items like starters, winches and high power lights. The side of these battery blocks have a smaller side post as well, this is convenient for the lower power electronics mentioned earlier such lower amperage draw sensitive electronics such as radios, intercoms, etc..

$290 12v fridge freezer – Behind the Scenes

The backstory starts with a flashback. Many of you recieving this e-mail have been customers of mine for many years, possibly even since the beginning in 2006. Not long after that we had a large-ish gathering of Nissans on the Johnson Valley dry lakebed in October 2008. As I write this, many memories are rushing back. Memories of various simple things from the pumpkin that never got carved, and the mistaken weather report that left us shivering in the morning. To the seemingly endless Rattlesnake cyn / Gold Mtn / John Bull run which turned in a full 24-hour ordeal, but not without many lifelong memories to go with it.  Among the chaos of the seemingly endless weekend, was my friend Tim who showed up in an FJ Cruiser that some of you may remember. He successfully lead the trail run that intelligently skipped John Bull and made it back to camp in time for dnner, a large campfire and made many new friends.

Tim is a co-founder of Phalcon Overland which started about 4 years ago. In that time, Phalcon has proven reliability of their products in multiple ways which include having their products built with name brand components such as LG. They are also personally using their own products for their own extended overland adventures. Right now they are moving out a product that seems to be in a very competitive space, their 45L Fridge Freezer, but will be focusing more on unqiue fridge solutions such as the 30L Drawer Fridge Freezer which is attractive for space saving overlanding builds.
