Energy Xtreme’s idle reduction technology, the Law Enforcement Series, utilizes a unique power management system to operate a car’s full auxiliary electrical system without engaging the engine. The Law Enforcement Series eliminates the number of dead batteries caused by the constant power draw of auxiliary electrical systems, recharges while the vehicle is driving and can also provide engine ignition power in case of a dead engine battery. Law enforcement departments are using the Law Enforcement Series to save money on wasted gasoline, to slow wear and tear on vehicle engines and to reduce emissions.
The Law Enforcement Series provides electricity to the vehicle’s on-board auxiliary electrical system when the gasoline engine is turned off, providing power to mission critical tools, such as lights, radio, laptop and camera.
No. The Law Enforcement Series is a solid state, redundant power management system.
The system installs into the trunk of the vehicle and fits in most police cruisers, including the Chevy Impala, Dodge Charger, Ford Crown Victoria and Chevy Tahoe. The Law Enforcement Series is connected to the alternator via one wire and includes and in-dash LCD display screen so that power may be managed from the driver’s seat.
The car is not turned into a hybrid in a propulsion sense as the system does not power the movement of the car. The Law Enforcement Series does, however, enable comparable or even greater savings by allowing the engine to be turned off while still running the full auxiliary electrical load of the vehicle.
The money that can be saved varies from department to department and with fluctuating gasoline prices. However, the Law Enforcement Series can pay for itself in less than two years based on data collected from clients’ real-world experiences. For example, the Dallas Police Department uses the Law Enforcement Series for an average of 4.85 hours per day. Assuming 300 work days per year, a gas price of $3.26 per gallon and .75 gallons of gas burned per hour while the vehicle idles, the department goes financially positive in less than two years.
Yes. Energy Xtreme offers multiple Data-on-Demand software packages that provide access to vehicle data including vehicle idle time, fuel savings, emissions savings, and system operating time.
The Law Enforcement Series takes up less than two cubic feet of a car’s trunk space, which leaves room for everything else stored in the trunk.
Yes, the PowerCell technology used in the Independence Package® systems maintain a constant temperature while being used, so there’s no need to worry!
No. The Law Enforcement Series is commercially available for police departments, utilities, large commercial fleets or any business that operates fleets of vehicles and wants to reduce costs and carbon emissions.
The Law Enforcement Series is truly a unique product. There are other businesses working on solutions; however, most go with a “plug and play” solution in which they combine two already existing products into something new. Energy Xtreme has put years of research and development into the Law Enforcement Series.
The Law Enforcement Series contains a non-hazardous, solid-state, dry power cell free of any fluids or dangerous acids. It is highly resilient and has been abuse-tested. It is also gunshot safe, can tolerate extreme temperatures and is highly recyclable.
The Law Enforcement Series requires no fuel, has no moving parts and is maintenance-free. Energy Xtreme staff can train technicians to service and replace any failed equipment.
There is a one-year standard warranty with an option available for a another year.
All material parts of the Law Enforcement Series are manufactured and assembled in the United States.
What do I do when my auxiliary loads which are powered by the Independence Package® shutoff? i.e.; Light bar, radio, laptop.
You need to start the vehicle, once the vehicle is started your auxiliary loads will return to normal operation. Now you need to allow the unit to charge for a minimum of 40-90 minutes depending on vehicle type, before shutting off the vehicle so the Independence Package® has ample time to recharge.
