Records & Resolutions: Bolt 18 uses Centaur charger in a novel way

As Marianka said in the first Victron blog of 2015: “First of all: we wish everyone a very happy New Year! We hope 2015 will be powerful and innovating.”

Calendar-2015_1

Goodbye December 2014, welcome January 2015

First of all: we wish everyone a very happy New Year! We hope 2015 will be powerful and innovating.

And what is the first thing you should do to start 2015? Indeed: change your Calendar! We say goodbye to our 2014 Calendar and welcome our brand new Calendar for 2015, full of different examples using Victron Energy products. The new calendar is going like hot cakes. We have already printed and dispatched 5,000, and have now had to place a back order for even more! If you want one you better let us know quickly!

In comparison to the 2014 version the new one is a bit smaller and handier, especially when you want to change the month. And for the ladies among us: it also has male models.

We hope you enjoy it!
