Team member Marcia Mileidys Maceo to The Baptist Hospital in Kendall, Florida. DS18 hopes to help with the education and safe practices needed to minimalize casualties until the global efforts find a way to destroy this disease so life can return to normal.

Continuing to practice safe social distance, using PPE (gloves, mask, sanitizer) equipment, and knowledge of safely not spreading the disease is the key component to slowing down this very fast acting and deadly virus. If we all come together as a world population there is nothing we cannot overcome.

In this state of charging, the unit will keep pulsing either 13.8 or 14.4 pulses until the unit detects that the unit is fully charged and at its normal resting voltage, then from there it will stay in maintenance mode. The last feature and best will be power supply mode. In this mode, the chargers will switch to power supply mode and give either 60 amps, 80 amps, and a whopping 200-amp continuous power.

This mode is perfect for if you are needing extra power that your vehicle cannot provide, or if you are stationary and need a lot of power on demand at any moment or constantly. Whether you need a charger, maintainer, or power supply DS18 has you covered.
