- Coachmen RV is adding a high-powered upgrade option to its 2024 Entourage model with the inclusion of the “Gamechanger 3.0” lithium-ion Battle Born BatteriesTM, a product of Dragonfly Energy
- The partnership between Dragonfly Energy and Coachmen RV represents Coachmen RV’s inaugural lithium battery offering
RENO, Nev., Oct. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dragonfly Energy Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: DFLI) (“Dragonfly Energy” or the “Company”), an industry leader in lithium batteries and energy storage, is proud to announce that Coachmen RV, a division of Forest River, Inc. (“Coachmen RV”), will provide buyers of its 2024 Entourage Class C Motorhome the opportunity to add Battle Born Batteries’ Gamechanger 3.0 (“GC3H”) sustainable, high-performance energy batteries as an optional upgrade.
This new option provides for installation of two Gamechanger 3.0 lithium-ion deep-cycle batteries (each 270Ah 12V heated deep cycle LiFePO4). These batteries are maintenance-free, provide a lifespan that is up to ten times longer, with two to three times the power and five times the charging speed as compared to traditional lead-acid batteries that are currently standard in most RVs and travel trailers.
“We believe the GC3H stands out as a distinguished and powerful option in the battery market and will provide greater energy independence to buyers of Coachmen RV’s Entourage model,” Wade Seaburg, Chief Revenue Officer for Dragonfly Energy, said. “We know battery anxiety is a common pain point for avid RVers, but with this power upgrade from Dragonfly Energy, Coachmen RV customers have an option that we expect will dramatically improve their camping and off-grid experiences.”
This is Coachmen RV's first lithium battery partnership. An upgraded Entourage model featuring Battle Born Batteries made its debut at the Elkhart RV Dealer Open House, advertised as the “largest RV dealer show on Earth” on September 25-27, 2023 in Elkhart, Indiana.
“By adding Battle Born Batteries as an optional upgrade in this model, we’re addressing our customers’ greatest needs — greater power that allows them to travel farther and stay off the grid longer, making for a more enjoyable and environmentally friendly camping experience,” said Luke Handyside, General Manager, Coachmen RV Class C Division. “This partnership with Dragonfly Energy underscores our commitment to both innovation and customer service.”
