“We used to use a gas generator for all our power needs,” says Chris Wilson, Team Captain. “During the COVID lockdown, it was stolen. I felt that was the best time for us to transition to a clean power solution like Portable Electric. I first saw the Voltstack in action at ElectraFest 2019 and then read about their role in No Time To Die. The Portable Electric and GreenWave teams have been very helpful since day one.”
Chris and the UBC Formula Electric team used two Voltstack 5k e-Generators to charge the car on track days and the day before the competition. “Technically, we weren’t allowed to charge the car during the competition with our own power supply. So we used the Voltstack 5k e-Generators to fully charge the car before the competition since we didn’t have the facilities needed to charge it where we were staying,” Chris says. During the competition, the UBC Formula Electric team used the Voltstack 5k e-Generator to run all sorts of power supplies and tools like drills, onboard data telemetry, and tire pumps. Since the Voltsacks were so powerful, they also used them to charge the team’s laptops, printer and fans which kept our car and members cool during the grueling heat at the track in Michigan.
