I purchased a portable battery pack off you and i also rang you a few times about it. I ended up using a Trojan battery and all works awesome .So thanks for your help and for a great product...

Michael (12V Power Pack)


Gave the slide a good work out on the weekend and was very happy. The others in the party were jealous!!!

Thanks a lot for doing that.

Alan McCredie (Engel slide and dual battery system TD5)


Thanks for the image, its very useful.

Thanks also for your great after sales service and product support.  
Even though your in Brisbane its easier getting product info and advice from you than at the local ARB !

Regards Michael Johns (TD5 Battery Tray)


I have a 100 Series diesel and the kit came with everything and I had the install done in about 2 hours. Most time spent finding a path through the firewall.

The dual battery system is in constant use with an inverter and occasionally a fridge.

In my experience Derek stands behind his product and will always be there to answer any question you may have however small.

Ciao for now Andrew (Vivid Adventures) (100 series dual battery)


Hi all,
We have a 100 series with a dual battery system supplied and fitted by Derek of Sidewinder. Very happy with with the system and installation. Derek was extremely helpful and forthcoming with good advice. We have traveled many rough tracks and to date have had no problems. We highly recommend Derek and his products.

Cheers, John and Patricia (100 series Dual battery)


I'd recommend Derek's (ABR) sidewinder kit. I've had it on my cruiser in the toughest of wet, hot or rough conditions for 20K's and constant use of an inverter and occasional use of a fridge - works a treat.

Ciao for now Andrew. (Vivid Adventures) (100 series dual battery)


I thank you for your excellent service, instructions and advice. I can see you've sorted your system out well. Great instructions, minimum fuss. Incidentally I looked at various alternatives, Rotronics etc before I went to Redarc and before I saw your system.  
Great product. You got it worked out before all these dummies are going to charge everyone a fortune for doing the same thing. If I can help market let me know.
 
Thanks again, Lawrie. (Prado 120 series dual battery)


Hi Derek,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the great job you did on my (2005) 100 Series Lancruiser. I am very pleased with the workmanship and attention to detail you supplied. I would not hesitate in recommending your business to others. The service I received was fantastic and best of all you carried out the work not an apprentice. 
Thanks again,
Stephen Jesberg.   (2006 100 Series diesel, Trailer charge system and spotlight wiring) April 2006


Derek, Thanks very much. The light, wire, eyelets and Anderson plugs arrived today, safe and sound.

I am very impressed with your service and speed and you even included a brochure. I will be recommending your business to my brother in law as he also needs to wire up his car for a fridge for a trip.

Thanks very much for your service.

cheers scott drew (On-line parts purchase) April 2006


Thanks Derek. And thank you for you expertise and advice. I only wish I knew about you 8 years ago and I could have got something better from the start.

Alex Mongard (Prado Reconfiguration) April 2006


Dear Derek,
 
You may recall you installed a dual battery system in my red Jeep Wrangler some months ago. Well I've tested it and the mounting brackets out in some pretty rough terrain and it's going great. It also runs the fridge all day and night with negligible power loss. Thank you, a great system.

Regards Chris Thorley (FLYER fitted to Jeep)  May 2006


Derek,
 
I just wanted to take the time and this opportunity to again thank you for the work you recently did on my Cruiser. It is rare these days to see someone who takes such pride in his work and the quality that you have done on my vehicle speaks volumes.
 
I am a very fussy person with my vehicles and it is usually a big thing for me to trust someone to complete work on the car. I had almost got to the stage of questioning myself as to whether or not I was expecting too much from people after having many experiences with less than adequate work. I felt totally comfortable leaving the car in your hands and as I said before I was even more impressed when I got it back. You have restored my faith that there are still good people doing great work out there.
 
I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know without hesitation.
Regards Jason (100 Series Dual Battery) July 2006


G’day Derek,
Just a short note to thank you for the very prompt delivery of the Prodigy Brake Controller, it was waiting for me when I got home this afternoon. For goodness sake mate, I only ordered it on the weekend and we live in Darwin! Great stuff, you’ve won us
Regards,
John and Jude


Just had to drop you a line to say good work!, outstanding web page, quality products and fantastic service and after sales backup...
Keep up the good work, I will be purchasing from you again as soon as the bank account is healthy again, many thanks and I will be telling all my mates about your excellent online shop.
Best Regards

Did a DBS install on my Hyundai Tucson MY06 using the DBi-120, and your 50 amp Anderson plugs. Details of the install are posted at http://tucsondrivers.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=2375
Just back from a 6500 kms trip to the Great Ocean Road and back to Brisbane via The Great Alpine Road and the Alpine Way. The DBS worked faultlessly and kept the fridge pumping quietly and happily in the tray. Camera batteries and mobiles all happily recharging whether the motor ran or not. Not a glitch due the DBS; there was one but that was operator error.
Just thought you would be interested.

Derek,
Just a note to say that the Sidewinder fridge (plus slide, bag, etc.) I bought about three months ago has just completed its first proper road test – three months in far west NSW, including hundreds of km of (often very corrugated) gravel road. Once I got the temperature right it performed exactly as promised, in other words perfectly. It’s tough, has modest power usage (no problem for four days on the second battery, without need to recharge), is easy to clean and – most important – keeps the beer cold and the peas frozen.
Thanks for a great product, and I’ve been recommending it to everyone I met on our travels.
Cheers
Jonathan Baldry

Dear Derek
Just back from 3 weeks away, using the DBi120 purchased from you and installed myself!
Worked a treat.
Many thanks for your advice.

Hello Derek
Thank you for the thank you.
I continue to shop at your Ebay store because I know I will get quality items, and exactly what I need at a reasonable price.
Your generous technical information on ABR, and other web sites, including the excellent ExplorOz site, has been invaluable for me both from a research, and educational viewpoint, helping me make an informed decisions before purchase.
Please don't change a thing!

Gday,

Coupla things.

Firstly I could not believe I ordered goods at lunchtime on a monday and had Aust Post deliver them on tuesday around 9.30am. Wow!

Secondly, thanks for sending the compressor out quickly too. It arrived today, and within 1 min of receiving I had it unpacked and testing it on my 33" mud tyres. I timed from 20psi to 40psi, and it only took 2mins on the dot. I ran my test twice to confirm it. Very happy. It is also quiet. In the future I will definately be hooking it up to a small tank and run a pressure switch which will save time unpacking it etc. Almost forgot, I used your pressure gauge/deflator too, and found it to be very handy and accurate. It took about the same time, 2mins, to deflate from 40psi to 20.

I wish I had bought a fridge off you when you had them. Hope you sort out the compressor supplier and prices soon.

Thanks again and cheers,

Tom.



Hi Guys Just wanted to say thanks I have had the chance to use the PSVs a couple of times now and i must say I am very impressed.They are spot on and with out failure are consistant with lowered pressure. I run BFG 33s and have adjusted them for 25PSI for ligh bush driving. My son has the Staun Brand and can never get the same constant pressure like i can with the sidewinders.
So once again I say thankyou and i will definately recommend your sidewinders over the stauns any day

Re: Dual Battery Monitor
G'day Derek
I'm another satisfied customer awaiting the above. Please feel free to spam me when they become available. I installed your Dbi120 aa few months back and today replaced both batteries. That will give me a couple of older ones to run into the ground as the 3rd battery - Aux 2 and for my small trolling motor.

As I think through the most functional and flexible setup to work towards it's amazing how often I come back to ABR products to find they are in or about the slot. Following the tracks of others I guess but in passing some unsolicited feedback. For most things like this I do my research pretty thoroughly and it appears to me that a lot of your product lines are really well placed in the market for purpose, quality and value. It speaks to both your technical and commercial expertise. Taken with the quality of your service it's a very sound combination for a business model.

Cheers

Thanks guys - I have received the the air compressor and already have given it a good work out up at Quobba station in the last week - what a trip. Check it out online it will blow your mind if you are not aware of it. Pulled some serious fish out of the place. Land based game fishing, not a place for the faint hearted or the part time fisherman.

Thanks again, a awesome product for it's price.

Hi Derek,

I thought I would give you an update on our recent trip and how your products performed.

We have an 2005, 100 series Landcruiser fitted with ABR DBi 140 isolator, digital battery monitor, ABR Laptop power adaptor and ABR HID Wide and Pencil beam lights.

We just finished a month up in the Kimberley covering 8500 kms which included the Great Central, the Tanami, the Gibb River and various other rough roads. We also did some horrendous tracks , The Carson River (yet to be completed, we only did 20 km in 3 days, may take a couple of months to drive this), Karunjie and the Walcott inlet tracks.

The battery isolator coupled with the digital monitor was brilliant. I have a 120w solar panel managed by a Dingo controller and with that you can see at a glance from the monitor whether things are working or not. It highlighted a fault in my charging circuit caused by a Hella key type isolator which I was able to rectify easily. Without the ability to monitor what was going on, my fridge would have eventually flattened the secondary battery.

I thought I would pass on how your products performed under extremely rough conditions and I would have to say they performed brilliantly.

As for the rest of the car, 1 new windscreen, last section of the exhaust need to be re-welded and I managed to wear out a brand new set of Cooper ATRs in just 8000 kms.

Thanks again for coming up with some great products and looking forward to future developments.

Regards

Bruce




Hi there
Just wanted to tell you how great your teflon coated Square pan is. We are two weeks in a four week trek to Uluru from Hillston NSW and we have used your frypan nearly every night.it's easy to cook in and we just wipe out with paper towel to clean. We have travelled via Mildura orroroo Wilpena pound Leigh Ck  odnadatta track marla to Uluru so far and-have been  so blown away by the beauty of our beautiful country and it's sights to see. Thanks for making my camp meals easier.

Kind regards

Hi Derek,
I have just had the auto electrician fit the flyer battery box to my Patrol.

He said it was the best quality kit he had ever seen and he would be buying one for himself.
He was particularly impressed with quality of cables you supplied.

I thought I would pass on his feedback and my thanks.

Regards

Hello Derek,

I recieved my order today and it was only ordered 2 days ago,fantastic service,a lot of ebay sellers could learn a lot from you and your excellent business sense Derek.
 
I will leave my feedback soon on ebay,I just wish the comment box for the feedback was bigger so I could give you a proper commendation,one you and your company deserve for your business excellence.Hence this email.
 
Kind Regards Bill Bennett

Gidday Derek

I am currently sitting at Yulara ( Near Ayres Rock) after having driven 4 days and some 3000+Kms over many questionable roads to get here.

The bits and pieces I have sourced from you aver the last couple of weeks inc a Dual Batt controller and monitor have performed flawlessly and the Cold Beer I am now sitting with is testament to it.
Thank you for the  prompt service and awesome products....

Cheers
