The Arc'teryx Voltair 20 Litre avalanche airbag backpack uses a rechargeable battery to activate the avalanche airbag.

Using a battery to activate your airbag means you can make multiple deployments in a single day. If you're in unsafe terrain you no longer need to be cautious about setting it off, unlike the one time use gas canister style bags.

Its custom-designed rechargeable battery and powerful centrifugal blower achieve the same pressure and fill rates as gas cartridge systems, then pulse additional air that helps maintain inflation in case of minor punctures.

Designed for the backcountry, these avalanche backpacks are made using highly durable, weatherproof super strong ripstop Nylon and offers a full 20L of intelligently organized gear space.


Advantages of a battery operated avalanche airbag:

The heart of the Voltair airbag is a powerful 22.2V rechargeable Lithium-Ion Polymer battery, which powers multiple deployments on a single battery charge. (up to 8 times at -15degs and at least one time at -30degs centigrade)

  • Practice deploying the airbag balloon over and over again so you know what to do when it really matters.
  • Train yourself on how to ski or ride while the airbag is deployed.
  • Demonstrate deployments for people unfamiliar with airbags.
  • Practice re-packing the airbag.
  • The system will continue to fill itself even with small tears or punctures, unlike gas cannister airbags.
  • There is no problems travelling on airlines with battery powered avalanche airbags.
