Gauteng Getaway Show – Victron goes off-road

Courtesy of Safari Centre, their stand included a 4×4 demo vehicle showing how Victron products can enhance any off-road adventure. Visitors found their setup particularly interesting, due to their association with Victron Energy and the fact that they are able to offer a single supplier, total power solution.
