Leisure Marine Batteries
Most Leisure Marine Batteries are now hybrids
Most Leisure Marine Batteries that we buy today are “hybrids”. They are a cross between the regular starter and the Deep Cycle Battery. This new type of marine Battery is now of a high standard. These marine batteries are of course completely sealed. The batteries are fitted with special valves that release pressure that may build up. Especially, in the battery when it is overheating.
The Marines cells are made of a lead-sponge material . For this reason, this is usually made of thicker material than the lead sponge in a starter battery. This type of marine leisure batteries is used on smaller craft. Thus, that are used for pleasure boating. For this reason, for longer sailings especially for ocean-going vessels. Therefore, I think that the true deep-cycle batteries are utilised.
We at BatteriesOnTheWeb also sell marine ones with twin negative and twin positive posts this enables the boat owner to join other electrical items, things to the system such as other electrical accessories.
Marine batteries are displayed in (Marine cranking amps) also known as MCA.
Marine batteries have calcium/calcium plates requiring no maintenance.
As I have stated. It ‘s hard to tell the difference between the two types of batteries. Because in general if it looks like a car type with the caps on the top to allow you to check the electrolyte levels, then it will be a standard car one. These batteries are marine batteries.
The rest of the materials used such as the oxides and separator materials. For this reason, gives a much higher capacity.
These batteries are available online in Lucas and Pennine-Kingpower from www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk
