Expansion Port for External Battery We highly recommend using a LFP battery (ie. KiloVault).  The RES-Q completely discharges the external battery, down to 10.5V, before switching to the internal battery. Completely discharging a lead-acid battery will likely damage it and permanently reduce its capacity.

*NOTE: We highly recommend protecting your RES-Q unit with a high quality surge protector, one rated to protect computer hardware. During storms and other emergency situations there are often surges in grid power that could damage the RES-Q, and other devices. Damage caused by power surges are not covered in the warranty.
