From the Manufacturer
The Trek 180 battery-powered wire welder is the first professional system on the market for MIG welding "off the power grid." No matter where your hobby or job takes you, the Trek delivers heavy-duty weld power to fabricate or repair 24 ga. up to 1/4-inch mild steel in a single pass. Powered by two internal sealed lead-acid batteries, the high-purity energy storage technology enables the Trek to be completely charged in about 90 minutes and quickly recharged in about 40 minutes. The integrated charging system is powered by standard 115-volt household current and can operate while plugged in or completely cordless. The Trek delivers 180 amps (approx. 10% duty cycle) on 115-volt standard power--a weld output which, until Trek, has been limited to 230-volt welders. The unit is setup for both self-shielded flux-cored and solid gas-shielded wires from .024 to .035 diameter.
