12 Volt SmartPhone Controlled Power Distribution for the Slingshot from SlingMods
We have teamed up with the brainiacs over at Arboreal Systems to bring you guys the coolest electrical mod for the Slingshot to date! As we all know the Slingshot battery is in the rear of the vehicle.. and our normal accessory fuse block has been a top mod for us because it allowed us to distribute and run circuits independently in the front of the vehicle to power aftermarket 12 volt accessories.

The Neutrino Black Box takes this concept and puts it miles ahead of the competition. You can control all circuits from your Android or Apple based smartphone via the free app. It shows you MPH, Compass, Battery Voltage, Altitude, Ambient Temperature, Current Draw per circuit, Total Current Draw on the block, etc. and allows you to control each 12 volt accessory with the push of a button on your smartphone. You can even name each circuit to whatever you'd like to call it.

You can control each circuit with automation. For instance.. you can tell your heated seats to go to 10% power if the ambient temp dips below 60 degrees automatically and to increase if the temp keeps dropping.

You can tell your halos to turn on to 30% power 15 min before the sun sets.

You can tell your underglow's to illuminate with the push of the brake pedal with a trigger wire on the relay input.

There are no fuses to worry about if you overload a circuit. This distribution box features on board breakers.. that can simply be reset with the push of a button via your smartphone.

We've created code: BLACKBOX50 for $50 OFF this mod until the end of September!

Wow. Glad I waited on getting the power distribution block (Accessory Fuse Block). This is a much better route IMO.

Yes.. this product is by far the most impressive thing we've launched to me personally. Installation is a snap. Power, Ground and Remote Signal Wire. The response time on the connectivity is very quick.. almost instantaneous. This product uses pulse width modulation.. meaning it basically has dimmer features per circuit. So you can actually slide an icon to dim your halos or splitter lights and if you had seat heaters for instance you can put them at 10% rather than the normal on/off scenario that may be too hot or not hot enough.

It shows you max current load on all circuits combined.. you'll be surprised at the metrics. Halo's for instance pull under 1 amp for a set of 4. What i also thought was very useful was the MPH reading on the home screen. My steering wheel completely blocks the speedo and it's nice to have the mph gauge on the app so i can see how fast i'm going without having to strain by neck. I have my phone mounted to the center windshield post for easy viewing.

I know some guys will be using this product to show off their lighting at shows or meets.. this product has a built in global shut down voltage for all circuits so that you don't kill your battery. It provides piece of mind, so that you know you can run those circuits without having to worry about if the Slingshot will start or not after your light show. Say for instance you're at a meet and need to charge your cell phone on circuit 6.. but only want to charge for 3 hours. You can do that.

It uses your phones GPS signal, so if you have your halos set to turn on 30 min before sunset.. the sunset time will automatically adjust as you move across the country depending on your coordinates... so it's always accurate.

It comes with an ambient temperature probe that can be used to trigger events. I recommend putting that in the drivers side foot well area and not in the engine bay so that the temp isn't skewed.

You have the option to add a USB Y Cable Extension Wire so that you can charge your cell phone directly from the unit.

It has a Battery Tender lead right on the unit that gives you straight shot charging power to the + terminal on the battery so you can quickly charge your Slingshot battery from the engine bay.

No more fuses to deal with. If you overload a circuit or accidentally short it out it trips the onboard breaker relay for that circuit. The app will let you know you tripped that circuit. You can simply reset the circuit from the phone app. No fuses to replace. If you do trip a circuit.. be sure to check for shorts or allocate more current to that device inside the app, so that it doesn't trip again. You can adjust the amount of current you allocate to each circuit inside the app. The box will allow you to pull up to 60 amps of current across all circuits.. which is alot. 2x our current FZ-1 Fuseblock.

I've been doing home automation for 10 years and this is mind blowing technology for the size of the product and speed and accuracy at which it operates.

The absolutely best thing about this product is that's it's firmware based.. so when Neutrino launches new app features.. you'll simply download the app update and you'll get all the new goodies. This keeps the product relevant without having to buy new hardware. Love that!

1- Can you link to the Android app please? Free or pay? Didn't see it in quick search and would like to play around with it first.

2- So this would allow jumper cable boosting from the engine bay as well?

3- Is install completely under the hood with existing (engine bay) connections, or does something have to run to the battery?

4- What does the optional harness do exactly...simply save me splicing into some (nearby?) wires?

thanks

Neutrino BB Controller - Android Apps on Google Play

Not jumper cables... battery tender charging for when not in use. For jumping you'll wanna take a peek out our jumper port kit here: Polaris Slingshot Battery Jump Start Ports

3- Is install completely under the hood with existing (engine bay) connections, or does something have to run to the battery?
The mounting location is under the hood.

4- What does the optional harness do exactly...simply save me splicing into some (nearby?) wires?
The wiring harness includes power wire for + battery terminal, ground wire to frame and remote wire that runs to the positive lead on the cig lighter in the glovebox. The install is actually identical to the installation for our other fuse block. We'll be doing an install video and review video on this product.
