After nearly 2 years of work our new Drivemate 24 volt microwave oven is now in production.
The picture shows the pre production prototype. Production models will have colour labels fitted to the front. It is a microwave oven and grill combination oven with its own built in power supply and control unit. The fused connections to the rear allow it to be wired directly to the vehicle batteries. LEDs on the front report the vehicle battery voltage and the control unit prevents operation with batteries that don’t have enough power to start the vehicle. There is an additional plugtop socket on the rear that can be used to run other small mains (240 volt AC) appliances instead of the microwave and there are 2 USB charging sockets on the front of the unit that can be used for charging phones, laptops or tablets.
This will be sold as a complete oven ready to go. We will also sell the Power supply as a separate item that can be fitted in a different cupboard where the dimensions wont allow the whole drivemate to fit.
