Find out about our fast delivery!

Industry leader in 12 Volt Systems

The 12 Volt Shop is an industry leader in supply of low voltage (12 V DC and 24 V DC) equipment. Our expertise covers a full spectrum of services - design, supply, installation and product support. We sell a large range of solar panels,( including Uni-Solar, Sharp, Solarex, Kyocera and BP), inverters (including SEA, Selectronics and Latronics), solar regulators, battery chargers and low voltage appliances (including 12 and 24 V DC lights, refrigerators, pumps and TV and Video recorders and players).

The 12 Volt Shop is a distributor for Honda, Robin and Dunlite generators. We have the largest range of low voltage connectors in Australia, including the new ARRID series of plugs, sockets and low voltage accessories

High & Low Voltage Cutout Device


The new ARRID Auxiliary Voltage Controller (AVC) is a small yet powerful device that is used to prevent damage to low voltage appliances (including fridges, halogen globes or televisions) from both high and low voltage. The ARRID AVC will also prevent excessive discharge of batteries, and is available in a higher voltage version for starting batteries (11.8 V DC cutout) or a deep cycle model that allows deeper battery discharge (10.8 V DC cutout). The ARRID AVC will disconnect DC loads when the battery voltage exceeds 16 V DC.
The ARRID AVC has a maximum rating of 25 amps, but will actually cope with higher inductive loads than many similarly rated discharge protection devices.

This is because the ARRID AVC features a 60 second time delay between reaching the designated cut off voltage and disconnecting the load. The AVC will not disconnect the load due to short decreases in voltage caused by the high start-up currents of inductive loads, (eg. compressor refrigerators). This feature eliminates the annoying “chatter” effect that may occur with low voltage cutouts that do not have this feature. Voltages can be adjusted for specific requirements. For further information and specifications contact ARRID.


Caravan Essentials

Expanded Scale Voltmeter

Wired in parallel with the battery, the ARRID voltmeters are ideal for reading the voltages between 10 and 16 volts in a 12 volt system (20 to 35 volts in 24 volt systems). The scale has been expanded to allow more accurate battery management.

  • 12v Volt Meter - 10 to 16v scale
  • 24v Volt Meter - 20 to 35v scale

Charge & Discharge Ammeters

Wired in series with a load or charge input, these ammeters can show net charge or discharge of the battery system.

  • 10A Ammeter -10 to +10 scale
  • 30A Ammeter -30 to +30 scale

Simple Security

Low voltage digital timer can be used to turn lights on and off at predetermined times in a caravan, motorhome or holiday shack. Or get that fridge cold before your next visit by turning the fridge on hours before expected arrival.


  • 8 ON/OFF programs
  • Can be set to daily, weekly, weekdays,
  • weekends or groups of days on each program.
  • Manual override button.
  • Fully digital, solid state.
  • NiCad backup battery.


  • Max. Current: 8A
  • Voltage: 12V or 24V DC
  • "ON" Power Usage: 3W
  • Backup Batt: 1.2V NiCad

Large Solar Panels

Sharp's NT-S5E1U module is designed for large electrical power requirements. Based on the technology of crystal silicon solar cells cultivated for over 35 years, this module has superb durability to withstand rigorous operating conditions and is suitable for motorhomes and caravan systems.
