Dragonfly Energy Corp. has entered into an exclusive agreement with Keystone RV Company, a subsidiary of Thor Industries Inc. Dragonfly Energy lithium-ion batteries now come as standard or optional OEM equipment on all Keystone RV travel trailers and fifth wheels. Keystone RV dealers also will be exclusive aftermarket dealers for Dragonfly Energy batteries through Keystone’s SolarFlex packages and as stand-alone products.
“Keystone RV continues to lead the industry in innovation, and Dragonfly Energy is proud to be their lithium battery supplier,” says Wade Seaburg, director of business development for Dragonfly Energy. “Our relationship has spanned many years, and this will allow our batteries to be included in towable RVs before hitting the dealership lot and covered under the factory warranty. The customer experience of a Keystone RV has greatly increased with the adoption of Dragonfly Energy batteries.”
Jeff Runels, CEO of Keystone RV, adds, “Keystone RV has an incredible relationship with Dragonfly Energy. Our collaboration on the Montana Super SolarFlex package demonstrated Dragonfly’s ability to innovate, execute and even help us to market the final product. We expect a long and fruitful continued relationship with Dragonfly.”
Through this agreement, Dragonfly Energy’s brand of technology and renewable energy storage is available to the public for the first time. Combined with Keystone’s SolarFlex program, RVs equipped with lithium-ion technology transforms what travelers can do on and off the road, the company says.
As environmentally safe, high performance and maintenance free products, Dragonfly Energy lithium-ion batteries have changed the way the RV industry looks at energy storage. Dragonfly products are outperforming replacements for traditional lead-acid batteries with a 10 times longer lifespan, 3 times the power, 5 times the energy density and 5 times the charging speed. Engineered, designed and tested for quality control all under one facility in the U.S., Dragonfly Energy holds high confidence in the reliability and performance of their product line, proud to alleviate battery anxiety for Keystone customers while traveling, according to an announcement.
“Dragonfly Energy has always strived to be the most innovative Li-ion battery technology company in the industry,” says Dr. Denis Phares, PhD, CEO of Dragonfly Energy. “We are proud to expand our relationship with Keystone RV, a company that has always shared our desire for both innovation and customer service. The interest in electrification in the RV industry has increased dramatically, and we believe that this partnership will yield great progress in this field and further enhance the excitement that has developed among RV manufacturers and consumers.”
All Dragonfly Energy batteries include a 10-year warranty, an end-of-life return and recycling program, and a dedicated technical support number exclusive to Keystone customers. Products purchased by dealers for aftermarket sales will also include these benefits, in addition to special dealer pricing, installation support, training from Dragonfly Energy’s technical service teams, and expedited shipping and DPU programs, the companies say.
