Volta Power Systems launches new flagship product
A battery manufacturer in the Netherlands is launching a new flagship power system called FLEX.
Volta Power Systems, based in the Netherlands, last month launched FLEX, its brand new range of lithium-ion power solutions designed for the recreational vehicle, work truck and specialist vehicle markets.
The FLEX Energy Storage Pack includes a redesigned case, heating pads and an exclusive Battery Management System (BMS). Volta used feedback from users and the Office of Electricity to adapt and add features to improve cold weather performance, more flexible controls, additional data capabilities and error proof connectors for faster installation.

FLEX represents Volta’s complete system, including production, storage and distribution. As with previous Volta systems, FLEX scales in 3.3 kilowatt-hour module increments with multiple pack sizes. These are designed to work independently or together to meet the needs of virtually any mobile application. The system can charge while driving from Volta alternators for underhood generation on most US truck chassis from 6kW 11kW. A range of DC converters and AC inverter options can provide three phase 110 volt, 220 volt or 208 volt distribution.
“Customer feedback is at the heart of innovation at Volta,” said Jack Johnson, co-founder and CTO of Volta Power Systems. “The diversity of industries we serve creates a great opportunity to learn and apply feedback to strengthen our products. Process-based innovation is a hard-learned lesson in our team’s deep automotive industry experience, and FLEX is a great example of listening, predicting and exceeding customer needs.
Volta’s FLEX allows users to take advantage of the latest BMS, enabling an end-to-end software and hardware system supported by the Volta team. The newest BMS offers improved battery monitoring and control for customers while integrating heating solutions that use internal energy to heat the system faster for better cold weather performance, as well as increased battery capacity. adaptable input/output.
“For the FLEX, we’ve worked hard to continue to improve the safety, performance and reliability that our customers rely on,” Johnson said. “We are grateful to customers for their honest and ongoing feedback and collaborative improvement of our power systems that has enabled us to sustainably become the company we are.”
The rollout of FLEX comes as Volta recently formed a new partnership with Grand Design, an RV trailer manufacturer.
Volta roughly doubled its sales in 2021, expanding its manufacturing space to twice its footprint, and the company expects revenue to double again in 2022.
