Solar battery charging of Leisure Batteries is becoming ever more popular amongst the people who own Motorhomes and caravans Best Caravan Batteries. In the past the owners of these vehicles would use a cheap car battery, but

as the caravans became more sophisticated and the manufacturers added more luxuries that were controlled by electricity, then so the power supply to operate these electric gadgets had to be more powerful and specific Leisure Batteries were developed by the large battery companies.

The normal car battery was simply not adequate to use on most of these kinds of vehicles. The car battery is designed to start the car in any type of weather, from hot to freezing cold temperatures, the car batteries Caravan Leisure Batteries are expected to start your car. These batteries will show you the CCA (cold cranking amps) on the battery label and although they worked when caravans and the early motorhomes did not use much electricity, they are no good to use now, because the battery requires more storage and not CCA’s.

These new types of Trojan Leisure Batteries were developed with electric storage in mind. The battery looks like a large car battery but has in fact been given thicker cells, to enable the Leisure Batteries to store more power. These batteries connect in line with the motorhomes charging system or a new system that is getting more popular is the use of solar power to charge up the batteries when the owner travels away from a power supply, say in the wilderness or in a farmer’s field.

These new types of Trojan Leisure Batteries are usually sealed but contain a pressure release valve which will let off any excess pressure if for some reason the battery overheats or for some other reason such as very high temperatures and this can happen but is very rare, in fact I have only seen one leisure battery that has exploded and I have taken a picture to show on the blog post. These batteries are made by Johnson Controls the World’s leading battery development company and battery manufacturer, making famous brand names such as Varta, Lucas and Numax batteries. The most popular part numbers for leisure use are LV22 and LV26, both batteries are a single post and will fit most caravans and motorhomes.

The next type of battery that can be used is the AGM battery (absorbed glass mat). This battery has glass fibre particles added to the acid to make the liquid acid into a type of paste, and because of this, the Trojan Leisure Batteries is totally sealed and can be stood in any position. This battery is most suitable for all battery storage needs because it will charge and discharge at a much

higher rate and will last much longer than the lead acid leisure batteries that I have talked about earlier.

One of the leading AGM manufacturers in the World is Trojan for leisure batteries

And these are the batteries that are recommended by the expert in the attached video.The video is all about solar storage for the home, but I am impressed with the way that he visually shows the different batteries that I have tried to describe, I feel that a video can save many words and many people are visual and can understand more when they see pictures. So have a good 2014,

Leisure Batteries storage time again as Winter approaches?

 

 

It is storing your Leisure Batteries time

The extremely mild weather her in the UK has brought out all the spring flowers, earlier than normal. It is also bringing out the caravan and motorhome users, into thinking about their

first 2014 trips out, judging by the amount of leisure batteries that we are selling at the moment.

Normally we see a surge of sales and inquiries just a few weeks before Easter, but this year the sales are coming early. One of the most popular batteries that we sell to the caravan and campervan (RV) fraternity is the XV31 110 amp leisure battery that is made by a battery manufacturer in South Korea called KSB batteries. This also covers smaller battery sizes, including XV 23, XV 24, and XV 27 and, of course, the XV31. This battery along with the LV26, and along with the smaller LV 22 are made by Johnson Controls, the World’s leading battery developer and battery manufacturer.

This year (2015) is a particularly good time to buy this Leisure Batteries product, because due to the mild winter, the sales of car batteries have dropped and the leading battery companies are well down on sales of car batteries and are looking forward to the next battery season, which includes the sale of leisure batteries, motorcycle batteries, mobility scooter batteries, golf cart batteries and other seasonal things such as lawn mower batteries and the guys who are lucky enough to own a classic car, the classic car batteries are huge sellers.

What normally happens is that the owners of these types of battery-driven machines equipment will get them out as soon as the weather improves and start getting warmer, which is normally around April time here in the UK. But this year we are about three weeks to a month in front, due to the mild weather. In fact, I have recently seen a butterfly and many bees flying about and also the grass on my lawn needs cutting for the first time after the winter.

People all over will be getting out their golf and gardening equipment only to find that their battery is flat and will not work. Most of the time the battery will recover when it is charged, but people are reluctant to charge their battery throughout the winter months. Up to recent times, the battery chargers were of the old fashioned types that you put onto your battery

and then took off when the battery was fully charged but these days you can buy what they call “intelligent battery chargers”. These chargers are made by well-known companies such as “Ring Electrical” and “Numax”, and are well worth the investment. What you have to do is find out the correct amps that you require for your size of the battery, remove the Leisure Batteries from the caravan or lawn mower, whatever it is on, give the Leisure Batteries a clean and if it is not a sealed battery, check the levels.

You can then connect the leisure battery to the smart charger

, (preferably in a frost free place) and leave it to charge all the winter long. The charger will then keep your leisure battery charge topped up to the correct levels and automatically switch on and off when charging is required. This way you will end up with a nice clean fully charged the battery when the time comes to use it.
