If you’re looking to take control of all your 12V accessories on your vehicle, then an sPOD BantamX is a no-brainer. The sPOD BantamX solid-state technology system provides a continuous power flow of up to 100 amps and features up to eight circuits, rated at 30 amps each. That means this system can handle incredible power to control most accessories, whether you are building a full-tilt Prerunner or overland adventure rig destined for the Rocky Mountains. sPOD gives you the power to take control and adventure further with confidence. With all the advanced technology designed into the power management systems, we wanted to tell you five things you didn’t know about the sPOD BantamX.

Input Control

Taking factory integration to the next level, the sPOD BantamX comes standard with factory inputs, which allow you to integrate your power control module system with your vehicle’s OEM equipment.

It allows you to integrate things like your rock lights being programmed to come on with the door triggers or will enable you to control your sPOD with factory up-fitter switches by running wires from the input terminal to the corresponding circuits.

Another great use for input controls is integrating your power control module system with your vehicle’s OEM equipment. It will enable you to incorporate things like your fuel pump circuit to turn on when the ignition turns on, making it extremely convenient for a startup sequence. These are just some of the endless use cases for utilizing Input Control.

Dip Switches

On the sPOD BantamX power control module, there are six small dip switches that have multiple functions to control different features of the system. We know you are probably looking at these switches and are thinking, “What the heck is this?”. Don’t worry; we got you covered; let’s dive into it.

Switch 1: This engages your sPOD into Bluetooth pairing mode. All you do is flip it on, and Bluetooth is ready to pair.

Switch 2: All sPOD Systems are compatible with both 12V and 24V systems that you would typically see in industrial applications. The (OFF) position signifies it is on 12V and (ON) is 24V.

Switches 3 & 4: Lock-out control functions for corresponding switches #1 & #2, when working in tandem with the input triggers, enable the ability to have a lock-out function such as lockers, high beams, and even reverse light.

Switches 5 & 6:  This is utilized if you want to connect multiple bantams together to utilize under one controller. There is a possibility of linking up to four Bantam units together for a total of 36 circuits.


Each sPOD comes with built-in Bluetooth technology, enabling wireless control via the sPOD App and offering various programming options, including output dimming, strobing, flashing, and more.

Switch Linking

Switch linking is a great function that is standard on the sPOD BantamX. The switch-linking function can easily be controlled through the app and saved to the switch panel by selecting which circuits you want to turn on with the master circuit, and then when you select that master circuit, the corresponding circuits turn on. A great use case for this is linking an ignition circuit to a fuel pump. That way, when you turn on your ignition, your fuel pump automatically turns on. In addition, you can even have a circuit where you can link all your lights together and have them turn on all at once.

HD Panel Smart Functions

The HD panel is more than just a typical switch panel where you may typically turn circuits on and off. It is much more than that; it is a smart panel that includes various programmable modes for the BantamX, such as dimming, flash momentary, strobe, switch linking, and a master switch setting.


Now You Know

In summary, there is a lot to learn about the sPOD BantamX, and sometimes, it can be used in very advanced applications. The sPOD BantamX offers control over 12V and 24V accessories in vehicles, boasting solid-state technology, up to 100 amps of continuous power flow, and advanced features like input and dip switches, Bluetooth connectivity, switch linking, and HD panel smart functions. With its ability to seamlessly integrate with OEM equipment and provide many different control options, the sPOD BantamX is a must-have for enthusiasts looking to take control of their power management capabilities.
