Single New Narva L.e.d Strip Lamp Does The Job Of Two
Single new Narva L.E.D Strip Lamp does the job of two

Narva’s all-new range of 12V Colour L.E.D Strip Lamps are the perfect solution for a range of interior and exterior applications and provide the added bonus of offering two different coloured lights to best suit the situation.

There are three models available providing the following colour combinations: White/Amber, White/Red and White/Blue. All models are fully sealed to IP66 and resistant to sea salt spray, making them suitable for use on boats as well as in four wheel drives, campervans and caravans. SMD L.E.D technology also ensures the new lamps are extremely reliable.

While all three models provide a crisp white light output at 6200°K (72 Lux at two metres) making it easy to locate items around the campsite or inside the four wheel drive canopy, it’s the ability to switch to alternative colours at the push of a button, that makes these L.E.D Strip Lamps extremely flexible.

Amber and red light is ideal for camping situations as they attract fewer insects while also being less harsh if you’re planning on just sitting by the campfire and relaxing. For use in marine applications, the red and blue colour options are better for navigation with less reflection off the surrounding water than traditional white lights.

On the inside of caravans and motorhomes, the blue coloured option is great for providing mood lighting and even for use as a night light.

With only a 13mm profile and a length of 285mm, the Dual Colour L.E.D Strip Lamps provide a compact and sleek design that makes them easy to position on a caravan, boat or four wheel drive. For easy fitment, all lamps come with stainless steel fixing screws and snap on end covers. 

For added convenience, the White/Red and White/Blue variants also feature a touch switch to turn them on and off. The lamps also benefit from an extremely low current draw of 0.41A at 12V (White) and 0.19A at 12V (Amber/Red/Blue) and proven SMD L.E.D technology makes them extremely reliable.

Narva’s new Dual Colour L.E.D Strip Lamps are backed by a 5-year L.E.D warranty and available from leading automotive, four wheel drive, camping and boating outlets around the country.

New Projecta Compac Series – the latest in portable charging / power solutions

The increasing popularity of outdoor adventure activities, such as hiking, rock climbing, mountain and dirt bike riding as well as kayaking and the like, has prompted Projecta to develop a new range of innovative portable charging and power solutions equipment.

The new COMPAC Series of fast chargers and solar panels is designed to provide efficient, reliable and convenient power supply for a variety of equipment such as smartphones, drones, laptops and GoPros.

While the power banks and personal folding panels work well as standalone items, when both product lines are combined, the complementary performance can potentially provide users with constant access to portable power.

Personal Folding Solar Panels

Featuring a slim-line design that incorporates monocrystalline technology for extremely efficient solar charging, the Projecta COMPAC Series Personal Folding Solar Panels are also available in two extremely portable models.

The range begins with the PP10 which efficiently provides a direct charge for smartwatches, phones, GoPros and the like, via its 1.6A port and included 3-in-1 charging cable. This unit weighs only 300 grams and when folded measures just 270 x 170 x 10mm, making it easy to store in a backpack.

For even greater versatility, the larger PP15 Personal Folding Solar Panel features its own in-built power bank allowing the user to enjoy their outdoor activities, knowing that when they get back to base, they will have power in-store to charge their various devices and equipment.

Typically it takes between six to eight hours for the integrated power bank in the PP15 to fully charge.  Once ready it will rapidly charge phones, smartwatches, action cameras and drones using the included micro USB and USB-C connectivity in the 3-in-1 charging cable.

The power bank lithium-ion battery in the PP15 has 6000 mAh capacity, meaning it stores sufficient power to recharge most of the mentioned equipment multiple times. The three fast charge 3.0A (5V) USB, Lighting™ and USB-C ports also allow for simultaneous charging of multiple devices (at 3.0A combined output) if required and like the smaller PP10, the PP15 can directly charge equipment as well.

Despite its impressive charging capabilities, the PP15 is also light and compact, tipping the scales at only 505 grams and measuring 270 x 160 x 20mm when folded making it easy to transport.

For durability in demanding conditions, the Personal Folding Solar Panels boast high temperature treated panels that are resistant to damage from heat, while the units also benefit from short circuit and surge protection.

For secure mounting to a range of surfaces making the best use of the available sunlight, the folding solar panels also come with carabiners, allowing them to be easily fastened in preparation for charging.

Projecta’s new COMPAC Series Rapid Charge Personal Folding Solar Panels can be purchased at all leading transport, automotive, four-wheel drive and outdoor stores throughout Australia at approximately $99.00 for the PP10 and $189.00 for the PP15 model.

MSA 4X4 ACCESSORIES AWARDED GLOBAL MEDIA AWARD


MSA 4X4 Accessories, the Aussie company renowned for making some of the 4WD Industry’s most innovative products, has just been awarded a Global Media Award for their newly released MSA 4X4 Towing Mirrors! The Award was presented to Shane Miles MSA 4X4’s Director, at this year’s SEMA Show, held in Las Vegas in November. The SEMA Show is the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world, with over 2,400 exhibiting companies showcasing over 3,000 of the industry’s newest products!

The SEMA Global Media Awards Program recognises those companies that manufacture specialty products and accessories that would have mass appeal to consumers around the world. The products are voted on by a prestigious group of around 30 international journalists from 19 countries who serve as Global Media Award judges.

MSA 4X4’s highly anticipated new patented Towing Mirrors are designed to offer enhanced vision when towing, whilst being unobtrusive for everyday driving. “We’re extremely proud that our new Towing Mirrors have been recognised by the international media” explained Shane Miles. “It’s taken years to develop a mirror that, when not towing, was not disproportionate to the styling of the vehicle, and matched the size of the vehicle.”

MSA 4X4’s new patented Towing Mirrors feature a unique design with a large single mirror that pivots on an extremely heavy-duty extension slide, that allows the mirror to be returned to its normal, “non-towing” position, to avoid the extended mirrors permanently protruding off the sides of the vehicle. MSA 4X4 stand behind the high-quality build and design of their new Towing Mirrors with a class-leading 5-year warranty.

The stock of these award-winning new Towing Mirrors will available in Australia from early December 2019, with pre-orders being taken through MSA 4X4’s stockist network. These new mirrors are on track to quickly become one of MSA 4X4’s most popular product ranges!

Introducing the Dometic Dust Reduction System

Through its smart design, the Dometic Dust Reduction System minimises the amount of dust, harmful airborne particles and pollens that can enter your caravan. The easiest way to keep your caravan clean? Don’t let dust enter in the first place!

DUSTY ROADS HERE WE COME

Imagine being able to drive further whilst reducing the dust inside your caravan. With a rooftop ventilation system like the Dometic Dust Reduction System, you can significantly reduce the amount of dust in your caravan, breath fresher air and reduce the cleaning time after caravan trips. Fitted on top of the caravan, this is a non-powered system that operates when driving. When stationary it also provides free air flow ventilation and blocks foreign object from entering.

  • Significantly reduces the amount of dust, harmful airborne particles and pollens entering the caravan
  • Reduces cleaning time after caravan trips
  • Filters out dust particles with a PM10 filter
  • Non-powered operation requires no opening or closing of vents
  • Dust filters can be easily replaced from inside the caravan
  • Fits roof openings between 280 x 280 mm and 400 x 400 mm and roof thicknesses between 30 mm and 65 mm
  • Low profile rooftop unit is extremely lightweight at approximately 5 kg

PATENTED DESIGN

When the caravan is in motion, the air inside is pressurised and the DRS allows the clean air to flow in and airborne dust to be pushed out from other spaces, reducing additional dust from entering.

STYLISH AIRFLOW GRILLE

The clever design also keeps the weather and elements outside. It will stop rain from entering the caravan, where the water is directed to outlets but if there is prolonged and heavy rain, water will become trapped in the filter holder where it will evaporate without entering the caravan. If required in highly windy conditions, there is a blocker plate that can be used to block the airflow through the main filter. Now you don’t have the excuse of dust, wind or rain to stop you from heading off the beaten track and enjoying your time away from home even more.

REPLACEABLE AIR FILTERS

The patented design includes the PM10 filter that captures dust particles. It can also reduce harmful airborne particles and pollen that can remain suspended in the air for an extended time after stopping. It has been heavily tested in the dusty regions of Australia and is proven to reduce dust even when directly behind a vehicle on a dirt road.

A review of Xtend Outdoors

I have known Xtend Outdoors as Aust Wide Annexes for quite a while, but they have changed their name with their expansion into New Zealand. While they have a new name, they have not changed the high standard of their products.

Inflatable Annex

I was able to check out their wonderful inflatable annex, which is so easy to set up and such a clever idea. Instead of having poles and roof supports, you have super strong inflated air poles. The corner poles, and roof supports are inflated using a foot pump and it takes about 20 goes to inflate each air pole. Once they have been inflated they are extremely strong and will keep the annex in place with ease.

One of the best things is that all of the Xtend Outdoors products can be joined together with zips. It just takes a bit of forethought when you are adding in a new product to make it fit the existing products.

Ripstop Awning

Xtend Outdoors have a new style vinyl for their awnings. Forget the colour changes that you see in the current vinyl, this new one is just one colour. But it’s not laminated like the current ones, so it cannot delaminate. It wont shrink or stretch, it is thicker and stronger, but the big thing here is that it won’t rip.

The secret here is that it is made in very small squares, so if by any strange chance you get a cut in the vinyl, it will only go as far as the edge of that very small square. What a wonderful idea.

Xtend Outdoors is the new name to remember for all your annex and awning needs and wants.
