Roadwarrior Inc. Improves LightningVolt Lithium Batteries

The company restocked their fast-selling LightningVolt batteries made to last longer in heavy-duty trucks and help drivers reduce their operating costs.

LightningVolt APU Batteries

Ontario, Canada – 7 July 2022 – Roadwarrior Inc., the commercial trucking aftertreatment specialist, announced the improvement and restocking of their LightningVolt APU batteries, which initially sold out in March of 2022. Their product is a premium battery designed to preserve truck aftertreatment systems by boosting APU performance and reducing idling.

Roadwarrior is at the forefront of technology upgrades, and that’s why they developed the first trucking-specific lithium APU battery. Unlike modern aftertreatment systems, which usually find themselves unprepared for excessive idling, LightningVolt was designed by industry experts specifically for commercial trucks: compared to AGM alternatives, lithium batteries have double the runtime between charges and weigh half as much.

“Our company was the first-ever manufacturer to release a lithium battery specifically designed for Semi-Truck Auxiliary Power Units, or APUs,” says Dave Jerman, Sales Director at Roadwarrior. “We have decided to increase stock levels of our LightningVolt batteries to meet the growing demand of the trucking industry due to the soaring costs of fuel.”

As an emissions control specialist, Roadwarrior knows how to develop a battery that protects drivers’ aftertreatment system, reduces regens and extends maintenance windows. With headquarters in Canada, they have first-hand knowledge of how challenging terrain, long hauls and unpredictable weather conditions impact North American truck drivers and fleets. LightningVolt batteries offer high-quality performance even when faced with the shocks and jolts typical for trucking and extreme weather.

The latest restocking features three main improvements: a lithium-based technology for heavy-duty trucking, the possibility to be paired with lead-acid-starting batteries and longer duration in trucking applications. With 10x more charge cycles, LightningVolt batteries last for five to ten years and have double the runtime between charges, empowering drivers to run sleeper cab electronics like kitchen appliances and the HVAC system for twice as long without idling. As well as saving fuel, boosting your idle reduction system extends the life of expensive aftertreatment parts like your DPF and reduces inconvenient regens.

About Roadwarrior Inc.

With 12 warehouses strategically placed across North America, Roadwarrior Inc. manufactures high-efficiency diesel particulate filters and catalysts for heavy duty trucks, buses and construction equipment.

Roadwarrior Inc. was launched by the DCL Technology Group, whose unrivaled reliability and innovative emission control products are used in the most demanding environments on the planet, including Mining, Construction and Energy Production.

Our mission is emission.


Better Coating, Better Performance.

Roadwarrior is the only manufacturer to use Metalcor® catalyst technology across its entire range of Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOCs) and Selective Catalytic Reduction catalysts (SCRs). Metalcor® catalysts feature high activity catalyst coatings fused to thinner, stronger, catalyst substrates to guarantee maximum performance under the harshest conditions.

Metalcor® catalyst coatings are designed and produced in our own labs. We then inspect each unit to ensure you get more fuel efficiency, lower consumption of DEF, and long term performance from your heavy duty engine!


Roadwarrior Has You Covered!

All Roadwarrior emissions parts carry a full value 12 month warranty.

LightningVolt lithium batteries carry a full value 30 month warranty.

To make the process hassle-free, our parts have a metal nameplate with the serial number, so even after 500,000 miles of service, it’s still easy to identify. This avoids the common problem of serial numbers printed on stickers that burn off after the first start-up, making them impossible to return. Our failsafe system allows us to work in your interests, honouring claims for on-road and off-road replacements, and giving you peace of mind.

And since Roadwarrior parts are designed to meet or exceed OEM specifications, you can rest easy knowing our direct fit parts will take the problems out of your aftertreatment without interfering with your OEM warranty.

Next Day Is Nice, Same Day is Better!​

A faulty emissions control system can cost you thousands in wasted man-hours as your heavy equipment sits in the shop awaiting a new part. Whether it’s a truck behind on orders, a bus that can’t take passengers, or heavy machinery delaying construction deadlines, Roadwarrior can get you moving again! 

Roadwarrior has twelve warehouses across the U.S.A. and Canada, which can deliver the most popular aftertreatment parts in 1-2 days. With over 1,000 DPFs, DOCs and SCRs on offer, Roadwarrior offers the largest aftertreatment catalogue.

*LightningVolt lithium batteries ship directly from Roadwarrior in Ontario, to ALL 50 states, including Alaska and Hawaii within 2-4 days.
