DCPower is a family owned and operated business, based in Palmerston North. We’re proud to be local!

Winners of the Supreme Business Award at the 2016 Manawatu Business Awards, DCPower is located at 187 John F Kennedy Drive. The team at DCPower have enjoyed servicing the wider Manawatu region for more than 15 years with a large range of automotive, network power, deep cycle, solar and industrial batteries.

Our quality products are backed by friendly service and educated, specialist advice – so you can be sure you won’t get stuck with the wrong battery or charger! And just because we’re local – doesn’t mean we’re not competitive with the national chains…in fact you’ll find our automotive battery prices are some of the cheapest in town!

Plug in to DCPower and enjoy the difference!

A team that delivers


Managing Director
Sitting at the head of the table is Darryl, aka Daz. He’s spent 30 odd years in the industry, so he knows a thing or two about batteries.
He’s an engineer by trade, and prides himself on a job well done. He’s got an eye for detail, and is a practical bloke when it comes to getting stuff done. He lives by the belief that if a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing well.


General Manager
Sarah joined Daz (her dad) at DCPower in 2009, bringing an absolute passion for people and business!
Over the years she’s learnt a bit from her old man, and has become a battery guru in her own right. She’s a visionary, with big ideas and hairy, audacious goals. She’s got plans for DCPower…she just needs to get them past Dad first.


Technical Customer Services
Wez is our main man on the floor. He’s got a knack for remembering names and faces, and he’s brilliant with customers.
Whether on the phone, in the shop or over email – if you reach out to DCPower, you’re likely to encounter Wez at some stage. We like him because he does what he says he is going to do, when he says he is going to do it.


Battery Technician
Matt is DCPower’s Tool Guy – our workshop genius, with a dual focus on RV solar and industrial batteries.
His background includes ten years in general engineering and machinery maintenance, and like Darryl he believes you should do it once, and do it right!


Craig is DCPower’s newest recruit, working alongside Matt with RV’s and batteries. He’s inquisitive and loves finding out how things work. He came to us as fresh face but we are quickly teaching him the DCPower way. He’s a smart cookie and we are glad to have him on board.


Kaylee brings organisation to the party. If it needs to be sorted, she’s already got it under control. You can tell she’s a mum.

Thank you DC Power for your generous support to Arohanui Hospice, by donating to us half of all funds raised through your battery recycling programme since November 2016.Every donation brings us closer to achieving our huge fundraising target, necessary to enable us to provide specialist palliative care for patients and support for their families/whanau. We are very grateful for the generosity from local businesses like DC Power and to the public for supporting their fundraising initiatives.

Called DCPower and Wez said come on over & I’ll sort you out! And sort me out he did!! Absolutely fantastic service and Wez is a real credit to your company. Thank-you.

Totally wrapt with our complete full off grid solar system. Heaps of power to run all our modern appliances, even over winter. Great service, great people at DC Power.
Feels good to support a small local business as well.
