Everyone wants a battery they can trust, one that stands tall amidst the swarm of leisure batteries in the market. The Fogstar Drift and Fogstar Drift PRO both offer such quality and reliability. But what exactly makes these two flagship batteries tick and how do they differ from each other? Let’s unveil these differences to help you make an informed choice. 

Unveiling the Fogstar Drift and Fogstar Drift PRO

When it comes to high performance leisure batteries, the Fogstar Drift and Fogstar Drift PRO stand in a class of their own. Their variety of features and functionalities make them the preferred choice for everyone from casual users to professionals seeking optimal performance. In this section, we will dig into the distinct features, benefits, and differences of these two industry-leading batteries. 

Fogstar Drift: Power Unbound 

Fogstar Drift boasts cutting-edge technology for exceptional reliability, and user-friendly features for a seamless experience. To begin with, it offers both 12v and 24v options, catering to a wide range of uses and needs. Its capacities extend from 105ah to a massive 608ah, making it versatile and adaptable for different power demands. 

Under the hood, the Drift brandishes a robust JBD BMS with high discharge capabilities. This BMS not only regulates the battery's charge and discharge rates but also offers safety functions like overcharge, over-discharge, and overtemperature protection. Furthermore, the Fogstar Drift is equipped with heating capabilities which ensure the battery operates optimally, even in challenging weather conditions. 

IP67 Rated, this battery is sealed against dust and can withstand water splashes, enhancing its durability and reliability. To top it off, the Fogstar Drift offers multiple configurations, allowing you to choose between a 4S or a 4P setup based on your power requirements and device compatibility. 

Taking it a Level Up: The Fogstar Drift PRO 

The Fogstar Drift PRO amplifies the Drift's impressive features, adding to its convenience, power management, and resilience. Like the Fogstar Drift, this too is available in 12v and 24v, with capacity including 230Ah, 280Ah, 300Ah, 460Ah, and 560Ah. 

The most striking aspect of Fogstar Drift PRO is its Victron Integration. This feature allows seamless interaction with the Victron Cerbo GX, enabling remote monitoring and systems configuration at your fingertips. 

The Drift PRO also comes with a high discharge 300A JBD BMS, augmenting its power handling capacity while maintaining the safety and balance of the battery. The addition of an On/Off switch provides users quick and easy control over the battery's operations. 

Inclusion of a JK active balancer input enhances the battery's performance and lifespan by equalising cell voltages and reducing internal resistance. Additionally, the Drift PRO is housed within a durable metal case and supports RS485/CAN inputs, standing tough against harsh environments and providing a reliable interface for communications.

Speak with the Fogstar Team if you're having trouble estimating this - we can bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table.

Finally, don't overlook the warranty period. A long warranty can provide peace of mind, showcasing the manufacturer's confidence in their product. Moreover, look for batteries with strong customer support, since expert assistance can be invaluable when it comes to installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. 

Always remember - it's not about finding the best battery on the market; it's about finding the best battery for you. Take your time, do your research, and choose wisely - this battery will be powering your adventures for many, many years to come.
