G’day mate! (Just kidding, I never say that.)
I’m Marcus, the face behind Top Battery. Originally from Sweden, I traded the cold, dark Nordic winters for the sunny shores of Australia in 2014. It all started with a promise to myself after enduring yet another gloomy summer: next stop, Australia! And here I am, living in Perth, loving every bit of this sun-soaked adventure.
From Sweden to Australia: A Journey of Passion
My journey began on the Sunshine Coast, where I studied Personal Training. But it wasn’t long before my innate nerdiness for cars and technology took the driver’s seat. I’ve always been fascinated by how things work, especially anything with an engine and wheels. This love for cars naturally evolved into an interest in the power sources that keep them running – batteries, power packs, and the exciting world of portable solar panels.
The Birth of Top Battery
Top Battery started as a passion project. I noticed a gap in accessible, objective information about car batteries, power packs, and solar panels, especially tailored for the Aussie context. I wanted to create a space where enthusiasts and everyday Australians could find everything they need to know about these essential items without getting lost in technical jargon.
What Drives Me
As much as I love technology and the promise of renewable energy, I must confess that there’s a special place in my heart for the roar of an internal combustion engine and the feel of a manual gearbox. That said, I’m excited about the future of electric vehicles and how they can be as thrilling as their gasoline counterparts.
In my writing, I strive to be detailed yet casual, sprinkling a bit of humour here and there (no cliché Aussie sayings, I promise). I believe learning should be enjoyable and interactive, so I respond to every comment and question. Your engagement is the lifeblood of Top Battery.
My vision for Top Battery is simple: to make it the go-to resource for all Aussies seeking reliable and comprehensible information on batteries, power packs, and portable solar panels. Whether you’re an automotive aficionado, an adventure-seeker, or someone who appreciates good tech, I’m here to guide you.
So, welcome to Top Battery! Join me in exploring the fascinating world of batteries and renewable technology, one post at a time.
Cheers! Marcus Haerdin
