Frequently asked questions

Do the units come with plug-in / shore power?

The shore power is sold separately; we typically recommend the 12V80A battery charger from Samlex for the Pluto and 2 chargers in parallel for the Titan. The chargers can be connected to 110 or 220V AC We have the chargers in stock and can provide a quote for the charging system.

How long does it take for me to receive the unit?

If the unit is in stock they will be shipped within 48 hours. Depending on location the unit will be received within 1 to 2 weeks.

What is the operating current load of the Pluto and Titan?

The max operating load for the Pluto is from 1.1kW to 1.6kW when starting. As the refrigerated compartment cools the unit will begin to work less and turn on/off. The average working load is 650W (13V @ 50A), this of course depends on the ambient temperature and insulation properties of the cooling compartment. The VAR450 Titan has double the capacity and operating load.
