Golf cart batteries-Deep Cycle

Golf cart batteries are also deep-cycle and are the most suitable for use in electric car conversions, where you do not have the access to state-of-the art technology, like electric car manufacturers have.

Deep cycle batteries can be depleted to 80% of their charge before they need to be topped up.

( Marine batteries, are sometimes called ‘deep-cycle’ and sometimes used for electric vehicles, but are not recommended because they are not true deep-cycle, more like ‘mid-cycle’ and have too short a life.).

Electric car batteries work the opposite way.

Batteries are used in gas car engines as well as electric cars. Electric car batteries are deep-cycle ones.

Shallow-cycle means that if you leave the lights on overnight, 5% of the battery will be depleted and it will go flat. You’ll have to find some kind person with a jump lead to give you back enough charge to get you going again.

Batteries are used in gas car engines as well as electric cars. Gas cars use shallow-cycle batteries. Electric cart batteries are deep-cycle ones.

Deep cycle batteries are used in solar panels, so that when the sun does shine, you can get most of that power over a long period. Other types of deep-cycle batteries are those used in heavy-duty machinery, like forklifts.

Electric car batteries work the opposite way. They are made of stronger, metal electrolyte plates. They are ‘deep-cycle’, because they need to provide a lot of power over a long period before recharging is possible.

A gas-car battery is made up of light foil electrolyte plates. This small battery is only needed to power the ignition, lights and other accessories.

Solar Panels Quantity- How Many are Needed To Power supply your House with energy?

If you care about the environment and want to lead a green friendly existence then solar panels are fantastic! What Solar Panels Quantity will reduce your carbon footprint.

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

Many people use Battery storage systems now with solar panels

Solar Panels Quantity

A small battery bank that can be used for solar energy storage

 

Solar power is now getting more popular, even here in the UK. You have only to drive around to see that many homes have now got solar panels on the roofs of their houses.

Solar Panels Quantity

The legal amount of Solar Panels Quantity in the UK is for a 16 panel system.

Here in the UK the Solar Panels Quantity is 16 panels per roof and the power produced goes in to the National Grid system. The money that is generated on the reverse meter is then deducted from the electricity that is used.

People also use solar panels on their mobile homes and touring caravans. This can also be used for power storage using an inverter and deep cycle AGM batteries to store the electricity for use at nigh-time. Many changes are now happening due to the increasing amount of homes across Europe that are taking up the generous offers from the various governments to install Solar Panels Quantity (Government Grants Solar Panels). Indeed i believe that  Germany produces half the electricity that the whole country generates. The UK are a bit slower but as i travel around you can see more and more homes installing the correct Solar Panels Quantity to their roofs, and now you can buy a Solar Panel Caravan.

Solar Panels Quantity, is also going to play a huge part in electric supply systems via solar power and wind turbines. The problem is at the moment, that the national electricity grids are having to cope with too many peaks and troughs. This can only be corrected by a battery system, a way of storing the energy supplied by the sun and then releasing it at night when the sun has set and the electric can be used to power households. The most efficient way to store the batteries at the moment is to use Deep Cell batteries, connected up in a battery bank and depending on what size you will need for your particular storage needs.

Tungstone Car Batteries- are Re-born again after closure due to imports

 Tungstone batteries stand for quality ?

As a car battery dealer for most of my working life, I am not surprised that this famous battery name from the past has cropped up again. The Tungstone Car Batteries name comes from the period that included other well known battery names such as Crompton  and indeed Oldham , who had a TV advert, which gave the battery an unforgettable slogan, “I Told,em Oldham”, probably best remembered by us older people. Tungstone Car Batteries

The difference now is that in the seventies they  were made in the UK, and now the batteries are imported and use the Tungstone Car Batteries name and logo. This came about because of a battle that took place between two of the largest battery wholesalers in the UK. Manbat and UKB are both from the Manchester area originally, and like the two football teams “City and United”, the companies are both arch rivals.

The two companies were in a bit of a battle to buy the Lucas battery name and logo, from a battery company that went into liquidation, located in Corby, in the Midlands area of the UK. I do not know the ins and outs of the different bids and how much the winners paid, but Manbat came away as winners and of course the famous name of Lucas batteries. Lucas no longer make car batteries and the products are sourced from battery manufacturers all over Europe, but the premium range of batteries are made by Johnson controls the same company that make Bosch and Varta batteries, and are of a very good pedigree.

In my opinion UKB were very disappointed that they were unable to acquire the Lucas brand name and so searched for the availability of some of the other battery brand names. They were able to identify the names that were up for sale and purchased the three names of Tungstone, Oldham and Crompton batteries, adding them to their own Platinum battery series. We at Batteriesontheweb  have now become Tungstone battery dealers in the West Yorkshire area of the UK and are very proud to be associated with this great name.

Tungstone Car Batteries bought direct

Eric Roberts remembers when he used to travel to Market Harborough and was able to buy a minimum of 100 Tungstone Car Batteries in a mixed order, my van was nearly touching the ground with the weight, but because we bought direct from the manufacturers we were able to make good profits, not like today when we only make a small profit, because we have to buy from the middle man as all the battery makers have moved out of the UK.

Spare Leisure battery-You Should Take Some Spare “LEISURE BATTERIES” On A Long Trip

Post Updated 9th Jan 2014

You need a Spare Leisure battery on land or at sea

When you think about it, it makes sense to carry at least one Spare Leisure battery with you, when you are traveling any sort of distance in your mobile home or touring caravan. I am sure that most sensible thing do is just that and take a Spare Leisure battery with you on their journey. I am of course talking about the people who go off religiously on their annual holidays and vacations,

Spare Leisure battery

As another update to this post i would like to mention the fact that many motor-home owners are now using solar panels to charge up their batteries and i think that this is a great move forward. A spare leisure battery would also be a good idea

touring on land or sailing the seas in their caravans, campervans , RV vehicles and boats.
The silver heads are the ones with the big budgets and have traded up to some wonderful and exotic vehicles that are the height of luxury , but large or small they all have one thing in common; that’s the fact that they all require a portable electric supply.
To keep up with the pace of the development of these vehicles, the manufacturing companies have come up with some great designs and powerful equipment for storing electricity. Our biggest seller at the moment is the 12 Volt Battery 110 amp maintenance free leisure battery that comes with its own carrying handle. This battery comes in single or double terminals, and comes in different shapes and sizes. This makes a great Spare Leisure battery?

The later makes it easy for connecting more than one  or connecting up other electrical items. They are available in a few brand names and comes sealed with a pressure blow off valve. This blow off valve makes them  leak proof but not totally sealed. This one is suitable for fresh water boats, but you would require a fully sealed AGM battery if you were using the boat at sea, this is because salt water and battery acid do not mix and if mixed they give off a poisonous gas.
Other leisure batteries are available and popular in 75 amp, 85 amp,and 100 amp sizes. The sizes depend on the room you have and also how much electricity you require to power your particular vehicle or boat, indeed not all travelers  need a 110 amp battery the other sizes are still very popular.
Going back to the Spare Leisure battery, it will help to ensure that boaters will not get stuck between ports, but remember make sure that you get the right battery for the water that you are sailing in, fresh or salt water. Acid

Just make sure that you  buy the correct Spare Leisure battery for the size of your RV or caravan, and make sure that you do not discharge it too much

Large motorhome ready to roll ?

from a battery will not mix with sea water and gives off poisonous gases.

Also whatever you are traveling in, make sure that you have a good charger, lack of charging,  is what causes many batteries to fail. If they are just not charged enough then the battery will  eventually  fail, this is where a Spare Leisure battery comes in.

There are many things that you need to keep in mind for you to find the correct marine batteries that is most suitable for the type of boat that you are going to be sailing in. One of the things that you have to decide on is whether to buy a portable battery charger or perhaps have one on board your boat all the time. You would not want to get stuck in the middle of the ocean waiting for help if your battery dies out, On board battery chargers will assure you that wherever you go a marine battery charger will always be available for emergency situations. A portable charger on the other hand is a great addition to any boat travel, as you can rest easy knowing that you have a backup if something happens to your on-board charger when dealing with dead batteries.

All the people who do there traveling on land do not have to worry about having to use AGM batteries or not,

Just make sure that you  buy the correct Spare Leisure battery for the size of your RV or caravan, and make sure that you do not discharge it too much, your Spare Leisure battery should not be discharged below 80% of its full capacity, this is thee reason that will cause a battery to fail and need replacing (Always keep a spare battery if possible). Leisure batteries can be bought online at great prices .

069 Bentley Battery-Bentley Brooklands calls in to Pellon Tyres for a New Battery Fitting.

069 Bentley Battery

Beautiful Bentley calls in for a new 069 Bentley Battery fitting

On a  lovely sunny day last week. We had a very special car call in for the  Battery testing. Hence, the car was a Bentley. Subsequently, the owner told us a bit of the history of the car. For this reason he explained that the car was indeed a Bentley Brooklands . Because of special extras that the car was kitted out with. Thus , car shone in the Winter sun. Therefore, attracted attention from some of our other customers . Who were  in the garage at the time. As a result, I certainly had to go look and took this picture for my blog.

Incidentally the car was fitted with an 069 Bentley Battery, this is the most common battery fitted to these cars.  

 Brookland Cars continued Bentley’s relatively angular design theme. which was also used on contemporary Rolls-Royce vehicles. Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. Accordingly, the exterior design featured the classic Bentley waterfall grille . As well as dual headlights with wraparound parking lights. As in many Bentley and Rolls-Royce vehicles.

Then the Brooklands also featured the trademark descending boot lid and chrome B-pillars. Remarkably,the interior remained relatively unchanged . Thus, from previous Bentley models . With a more curvaceous design elements surrounding the leather-wrapped centre console. Moreover, the steering wheel and interior door panels remained unchanged.

Although the one major change . Would be the relocation of the gear selector to the centre console . For decades the standard practice among R-R and and Bentley models utilised a steering column mounted selector. The interior continued to be surrounded by ample wood grain which featured engraved, lighter-colored outlines on the door panels.In the U.S. prices for the Brooklands started at around $156,500… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bentley_Brooklands.

The 069 has now become a very popular battery size. It is fitted to many car models, including many imported cars, such as Nissan, Toyota, Mitsubishi and many more.

The strangers were Star readers, who spotted my column on Christmas Eve and were moved by Daigle’s Dickensian predicament.

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

We  also gave a gift of two Free gift mobility Batteries ?

Just before Christmas. I was delivering a car battery to a customer in Dingle Lancashire the UK. Subsequently, I happened to take the the wrong turning into the neighbors drive. Soon, I realised that I was at the wrong delivery address. Because all that was there was a small wooden stable and a horse.

Consequently, I got out of the van. Soon, I was approached by a lady in her late fifties. To my surprise, she had lost her legs below her knees.As a result, she was walking on her knee stumps. The lady was stood up but only came up to my chest in height. My delivery van is covered with large pictures of mobility batteries for advertising. I noticed that the lady spotted this.

She asked me the price of batteries for her mobility scooter. Unfortunately, she said that she could not afford to buy any new batteries. As her present 12 Volt Battery was old and running down. For this reason, I felt very sad for lady.Hence, and continued to next door to deliver the car battery. Eileen is severely disabled after having both legs amputated.In a motorcycle accident. For this reason, her only means of getting about was on her mobility scooter. Which is battery powered. She does not have any prosthetic limbs for whatever reason. Eileen, relies totally on her mobility scooter. It was very strange to see her mount the scooter.Because she has developed a special knack for lifting herself up. Using, her now very strong arms.

Free gift mobility Batteries

The guy next door told me that Eileen could not afford to buy any new scooter batteries. Especially as how she was practically house bound. This pulled at my heartstrings. Therefore, being a good Christian i decided to give her two Free gift mobility Batteries. I returned to my stores in Halifax, Yorkshire UK and collected the two Free gift mobility Batteries to give to Eileen. I would have been choked to give her the  Free gift mobility Batteries direct and so i called into Eileen’s

 Free gift mobility Batteries

Free gift mobility Batteries for Eileen

neighbour who had bought the original battery.

The guy in and when i told him what i was doing he had a tear in his eye. I gave him the Free gift mobility Batteries, to give to Eileen, when i had gone back to Yorkshire. He telephoned me the next day to say that she could not believe what i had done for her, and she sent me a lovely Christmas card.

As an update to this Eileen is still going strong and looks after some horses for a good friend, she is still getting about on her mobility scooter and the Mobility scooter batteries, that i gave her are also  still going strong.

Lithium-Ion golf batteries (A New Breed of Battery) much lighter to carry for Golfers?

Though often overlooked, the Lithium-Ion golf batteries are one of the greatest inventions in all time.(for golfers )

In today’s world, we use batteries to power our accessories and devices such as phones, controllers, and children toys. Battery sales in the United States alone

Lithium-Ion golf batteries

progolf 16amp lithium battery

usually amount to almost fifty billion dollars a year, a number that grows annually by more than five percent per year. Lithium-Ion golf batteries in particular are becoming more and more popular because of their efficiency and power. If you are interested in lithium-ion golf  batteries be sure to check out this article.

To begin, you should know how batteries work. Batteries are in essence, a collection of several devices that includes electrochemical cells. Electrochemical cells have the ability to transform chemical energy into electrical energy which then can be sued to power many devices. Primary batteries are the most common form of battery. They contain enough a chemical energy to power a device for a set time, but cannot be recharged. . In contrast, rechargeable batteries can be recharged and used over and over.

Lithium-Ion golf batteries are among the best types of golf batteries. They last longer than other batteries. They also charge faster, saving your valuable time and are friendlier to the environment than most other batteries.

golf batteries

Golf carts can now run on lithium-Ion batteries

Lithium-Ion golf batteries are especially useful for golf batteries (buggies).

Golf carts and buggies require strong, efficient batteries that will work for several years. Lithium-Ion golf batteries fill all of these requirements. They can be used for STAR CARS, Club cars, and GEM cars. Many companies also offer a warranty on lithium-ion batteries, normally around 2 years. Many Lithium ion golf  batteries for golf carts are often much lighter than their counterparts. This is important because light batteries allow your cart to maneuver better. They also do not weight your cart down.

The voltage and amp hours of the battery vary with the type of cart. The voltage can vary anywhere from 12, 24, 36 to 46 volts. The amp hours can vary from 40 to 100 amps, though most lithium ion golf batteries are 100 Amp hours. However most of these batteries are around seven inches long, six inches wide, and are seven inches tall. Such Lithium-Ion golf batteries also offer an automatic battery management system. This is a system that is included in the inside of the battery. It helps balance your cells without any intervention needed and can cut off power from terminals if it detects high or low voltage or short circuits.

I hope you enjoyed this article about Lithium-Ion golf batteries written for Eric Roberts www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk

Low Weight Golf battery-Lithium-Ion Is this the dream Golf Battery ?

 Low Weight Golf battery;Will this new golf battery cost too much ?

Low Weight Golf battery;I have been selling the Lucas Golf Battery for many years now. I can remember the days when golfers tried to use the regular car batteries to power the early golf caddy’s because the first GEL batteries were too expensive to replace.

It is usually the case that when a thing first comes onto the market, then the price is high, this is what happened to the first Gel batteries and then the AGM batteries were produced

Low Weight Golf battery

Pro Golf battery 33 amp

which brought down the price, now these batteries are even cheaper because of the online battery shops and e-bay.

Golfers are a peculiar breed of consumers, they spend top dollars for the latest putter or the best balls, but do not want to buy a good battery they always go for cheapest battery on the market and then complain when the battery wont do 18 holes. They also fail to look after their golf batteries, some just chuck their battery in the boot of their cars and then tootle down to club house for a drink before leaving for. They very often leave the battery in the car boot for days before remembering to charge the battery up.

Another thing that golfers do is that they do not keep their batteries charged up over the winter period. This is one of the main reasons that they return their batteries to the dealer claiming that their battery is faulty, we normally give the battery a really good charge and they usually recover, it was just that they kept the battery in a freezing cold garage over the winter period, without charging the battery and keeping it charged all winter, as you are supposed to do.

New type of golf battery

Low Weight Golf battery

Low Weight Golf battery

The market has now introduced a brand new type of golf battery called the Low Weight Golf battery-Lithium Golf Batteries. This battery is much lighter than the conventional Gel or AGM golf battery, and should appeal to all golfers, because the new batteries are lighter they are more easily transported and easier to handle for the older retired golfer.

This new battery is also more powerful and has been designed to be the same size as the lead acid batteries that they will replace. For example the Low Weight Golf battery-Lithium batteries come in two sizes the 16 amp that will be suitable for up to 27 holes and the 22 amp for up to 36 holes. These batteries have life span of up to six times longer than the conventional battery and are 25% lighter , they also come with a 2 year warranty against manufacturers defects, this shows the confidence in this latest product.

The new Low Weight Golf battery-lithium golf battery comes with its own charger and connections including a new bag, once again they are made to the same size specifications as the old lead acid batteries. One more important point is that these lithium batteries will do 2000 cycles compared to only 300 with Gel and AGM batteries. The downside is that this product is more expensive than the other products on the market, but is far more superior and on top of the job…

More information about Lithium batteries…

“They’re generally much lighter than other types of rechargeable batteries of the same size. The electrodes of a lithium-ion battery are made of lightweight lithiumand

carbon. Lithium is also a highly reactive element, meaning that a lot of energy can be stored in its atomic bonds. This translates into a very high energy density for lithium-ion batteries. Here is a way to get a perspective on the energy density. A typical lithium-ion battery can store 150 watt-hours of electricity in 1 kilogram of battery”... http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/everyday-tech/lithium-ion-battery.htm

Mobility Scooter Batteries-Will Lithium-Ion batteries Replace Lead Acid Batteries

Mobility Scooter Batteries

New help for Mobilty Scooter batteries users

The advent of the “Lithium-Ion” battery will be a great relief to many users of the mobility vehicles. The 12 Volt Batteries that are

Mobility Scooter Batteries

Mobility Scooter Batteries may come out in Lithium-Ion shortly

traditionally used in this type of vehicle have always been a problem. Especially for the people that use these machines for getting about on. I would hate to think of the amount of these machines that have been caught out with a flat battery? Stuck half way on a journey and having to be rescued by a friend or relation.

Also, they have the problem of the weight of these batteries. Even the 12 volts 12 amp AGM Battery are hefty. Especially relevant, to injured or physically challenged person. The 18 amp and 26 amp are even very heavy to an able body person, so things have got to get better and for some mobility vehicle owners they just did.

From Mars landing to Mobility Scooter Batteries

One such use was presented to an American company.  Yardney Technical Products who were asked by NASA to design a new Mobility Scooter Battery. This had to be  much lighter and stronger than the

This micro -hybrid battery will be used on mobility scooters in the future

lead acid battery. This new type of battery was to be utilised for the new stealth aircraft and later for space exploration. Now the battery has been developed for more everyday uses such as mobility scooter batteries.

The lithium batteries that are now available as Mobility Scooter Batteries. Mobility users come in the form of a single 24 volt 10 amp lithium battery. This replaces two a Lucas LSLC 20-12 10- lead acid batteries. The single battery only weighs 2.4 kg compared with the pair of Lucas weighing in at 12 kg, very much lighter in weight. The battery also requires a special charger which is a 24 volt 3 amp including all the connectors. The big advantage of the new Mobility Scooter Batteries is that they will do 2000 cycles. Compared to 300 cycles for the Lucas lead acid battery, and although the initial cost is higher, you will be saving in weight and much more power in the long run.

For more information about the lithium-Ion battery.

“The Mobility Scooter Batteries works on ion movement. This is  between the positive and negative electrodes. In theory such a mechanism should work forever. Furthermore, cycling, elevated temperature and aging decrease the performance over time. Finally, batteries are used in demanding environmental conditions. In addition, battery manufacturers take a conservative approach and specify the life of most Li-ion between 300 and 500 discharge/charge cycles”… http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/how_to_prolong_lithium_based_batteries
