The Cascadia 4x4 VSS System™ hard-mounts to the hood of your vehicle and, during daylight hours, provides a constant flow of clean solar energy to your primary or secondary vehicle batteries. This gives you the ability to run 12V accessories like fridges, phone/laptop chargers, lights, power inverters etc. without the need to start your engine and without fear of draining your battery and leaving you stranded. The VSS System is completely plug-and-play and can be installed in as little as 1.5 hours. We chose the most stable and durable multilayered semi-flexible solar panel construction available to ensure that these solar panels can withstand extreme environmental conditions, maintenance-free, for years.

The Cascadia 4x4 VSS System™ is currently in use in the Canadian mining exploration industry.

Take part in our pre-order and be the first in line to receive the Cascadia 4x4 VSS System for your Jeep Wrangler JL and Gladiator pickup truck. The future of vehicle charging is here.

Features

- 80 watts of energy on the hood of your JL Wrangler from a solar panel that's only 3mm thick, meaning vehicle aerodynamics are not affected and the weight of the system is negligible.

- Durable marine-grade solar panel construction. The panel is made from 8 laminated layers consisting of fiberglass and high tech polymers allowing it to stand up to harsh environmental conditions like rain/snow/ice/mud/rocks/sticks etc. High durability makes this panel perfect for an off-road vehicle. 

- Plug-and-play MPPT solar charge controller. This waterproof unit mounts in the engine bay and is highly resistant to heat and vibration. It automatically controls how much electricity reaches the battery and prevents overcharging. The charge controller has been pre-wired with fuses, terminals, and connectors to take out all of the guesswork in setting up the VSS System

- The included custom cut vinyl base sheet protects the underlying vehicle paint from damage. 

- The solar panel has cut-outs for the washer nozzles/hood bumps on JL Wrangler hoods.These cut-outs are sealed from the elements with pre-installed foam weatherstripping. 

- Factory-like appearance. The VSS System follows the contours and edges of the vehicle's hood perfectly giving it a seamless and sleek aesthetic.

- Final assembly and quality control is done at our Canadian production facility to ensure that every VSS System functions perfectly. At Cascadia 4x4 we stand behind the quality of our products. 

 

How does it mount?

The Cascadia 4x4 VSS System includes a vehicle specific vinyl base sheet that mounts onto the hood of your vehicle in the same way that traditional hood vinyls or automotive vinyl stickers are applied. The vinyl acts as a moisture and debris barrier to protect the underlying paint. Then the solar panel attaches to this base sheet with a pre-installed 3M high temperature double-sided adhesive. 

Note: The VSS System takes 1.5 hrs to install and must be done in a dry environment between 10°C and 35°C   (50°F and 95°F ).

 

Can I take it off in the future?

This VSS System is intended to stay on the vehicle at all times. However, should you choose to remove it in the future we designed it to be easily removable in about 10 minutes with basic tools.
