Deep Cycle Batteries-This type of battery can be used to start your car.

Deep Cycle Batteries

Deep Cycle Batteries; You need more amps than a starter battery

Deep Cycle Batteries. This is a sort of question in reverse. Most people try to use car or leisure batteries.Hence, to fit their scooters or golf trolleys. But it is possible to use an AGM (Absorbed Glass Matting) type to start a car. Thus,this blog is aimed mainly at the motorhome/camper type customer.Therefore, that are unsure of the kind to fit.This type of battery is sealed and so can be installed on its side if required. Indeed some car makers.Of course, now provide a type of AGM Deep Cycle Batteries one to the interior of the car. Some of the Mazda range are fitted with a sealed one inside the car. Indeed underneath the driver’s seat. Because in the case of spillage during an accident.

The general rule when fitting an AGM  to a car is to increase the number of amps. Because of the cranking amps in a regular car battery. Are higher than those in an AGM battery. The general rule is. To fit a battery with about 20 to 25% more power in amps than a regular car starter battery. Genuine AGM deep cycle batteries are available in “Optima batteries”, from www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk

Deep Cycle Batteries

The modern car engine with electronic ignition and fuel injection does not need as much power to crank up the engine as the older cars; this means that modern engines do not require as large a cranking amps as they used to and therefore is much less important as it used to be. However, vehicles including leisure vehicles are now fitted with power guzzling electric appliances that are more suited to using deep cycle batteries. Do not forget that the deep cycle can be totally drained and then re-charged and recover fully, but a car battery may not fully recover if totally discharged.

It will not hurt to fit Deep Cycle Batteries as a starter provided you up the amps.

If in doubt many companies now make a type of crossover battery called a leisure battery in different amps depending on how big the vehicle and amount of power the battery requires, this kind of battery is available online in Tungstone batteries and Lucas brands online at www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk. Another kind of car now uses the AGM battery, known as the Start-stop system. These cars are now getting very popular because they automatically stop and start when the car comes to a stop, this saves energy and pollution, and by 2016 a significant number of cars will be fitted with this system, using AGM batteries.

Hi, I would like to introduce myself. I have worked in the Garage and tyre, and I am MD for online battery company www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk. Working for a couple of national tyre companies in my younger days, before starting my first business. Now I own a garage and MOT testing centre. Here in the UK called Pellon Tyre and Auto-centre, I am a keen blogger about anything to do with cars. Also their related products, anything that will help my business. Naturally, we are members of Point-S and Motor-Codes and are also a Unipart Car Care Centre and of course Tyre-safe.

Trojan Motorhome Batteries-Upgrading Your Motorhome-RV-caravan Batteries to perhaps the best Trojan

Trojan Motorhome Batteries

Get the most out of camping unplugged by upgrading your Motorhome Batteries 12-volt battery to two 6-volt Trojan Motorhome Batteries. A TrailerLife TV original video. For more…

 

eric Roberts’ insight:

Trojan Motorhome Batteries- 6 volt Motorhome Batteries conversion

This is a great video. So, about converting you 12-volt single battery to two Trojan 6 volt batteries. Of course, that are wired in series. Producing a 12 Volt Motorhome Batteries system. As a result, but with greatly increased amps. In fact, as the video says a regular Leisure Batteries are usually from 85 Ah to the most popular one which is the 110 amp leisure battery. But by joining the two 6 volt batteries inMotorhome Batteries,trojan

series the output will be a massive 240 amps.

This battery layout is an ideal situation. Enabling the owner of the Motorhome Batteries to use whatever electrical items that he chooses. Believe me, this system will be really on top of the job. So, with a massive 240 amp storage capacity. The Trojan AGM batteries are one of the best Motorhome Batteries in the World and you would expect this system to last at least 5 or 6 years. I say this because although the initial layout would cost you more, then you would be making savings over the long run.

This system would be great for the people who go out in the wilderness or are traveling long distances, say across Europe or perhaps further, people in America will be able to stay in their own country to travel to a wilderness, but wherever you travel you can use all the electricity that you require before the batteries will need recharging. Trojan has a reputation second to none and it gave me a real thrill and great pleasure when I first became the Motorhome Batteries dealer for the Yorkshire area here in the UK.

Trojan Motorhome Batteries

Trojan batteries make batteries to fit hundreds of applications, including boats, both large and small, emergency traffic light signals, platform lifts, known in the UK as “cherry Pickers”, golf carts and golf buggies, floor cleaning machines so that they can clean large areas without having to plug into an electric point and more recently they produce batteries to store renewable energy from the Sun via solar panels and wind turbines.

Trojan Motorhome Batteries

Large C class motorhomes use many electrical appliances, requiring a larger battery Amperage.

Here’s hoping that whatever battery you fit your Motorhome Batteries or caravan gives you great service on your travels in the new year holiday season(especially if you bought your battery from me?).

lead acid batteries ready for recycling

Lead Acid Battery Recycling- 95% of these batteries are recycled into new batteries-Explained

Lead Acid Battery Recycling car and truck Batteries – Recycling

Lead Acid Battery Recycling

Lead Acid Battery Recycling in action

 The process of Lead Acid Battery Recycling is performed on virtually on one machine. The scrap batteries which have come to the end of their Lead Acid Battery Life, start out at one end. The batteries are then crushed by hammering them into little broken pieces and they are moved on by conveyor belt into a very large container, where the heavy pieces fall to the bottom and all the broken plastics float at the top.

 The plastic pieces are then scraped away, and the toxic liquid is drained away leaving the lead pieces and heavy metals to go onto the next stage. The drained off acid is then treated with another chemical, which makes the acid into a neutral liquid a type of water. The water is then treated and tested in a special water treatment plant to ensure that it meets the necessary safety standards. The liquid is then treated and made into a powder for use in the textile industry.The Lead Acid Battery Recycling is an old technology and batteries are re-processed over and over again. The pieces of plastic are washed and dried and melted down, then they are put through an ext-ruder, where they are then made into plastic pellets. The pellets are then sold to the makers of battery casings, who mix the old plastic with some new plastic to make new battery cases, these cases are all black because they are recycled, white or coloured cases are made of all new plastic or polypropylene.

 All the lead pieces then pass on to a furnace and heated in a smelting furnace where they are melted. The molten lead is constantly cleaned and the impurities scraped off. The lead is then poured into mold and made into ingots. The ingots are again scraped for impurities and then finally left to cool. The Lead Acid Battery Recycling parts are then packed into bundles and used in the making of cheap new batteries.

 Lead acid batteries are used in many applications

12 Volt Lead Acid Batteries can be very dangerous if they are not re-cycled, and just dumped say into land fill. These batteries come in many shapes and form and are used for many purposes and in many industries. Many people do not know that these batteries are also used on trains, as well as cars and trucks, in fact train batteries can be huge in size and weigh

many kilograms. These batteries are used on many types of back up systems in case of a mains power cut, in many industries and hospitals. These types of Sealed Lead Acid Batteries MSDS are known as UPS batteries, which stands for (uninterrupted power supply).

Many large computer systems have huge banks of these types of Sealed Lead Acid Batteries UK, they are even used in submarines and military vehicles. So the need for recycling is extremely important to us all. Many of these batteries are well known to golfers with electric golf carts these  vehicles use AGM batteries and Gel batteries, also people with boats will be very familiar with the AGM battery, there are many,many applications and millions of different types of lead acid batteries on the market.

eric roberts‘s insight:

Lead acid batteries have now been around in their present form for many years.

Of course, it is only in recent times that the lead acid car battery has been overcome. Subsequently, by the more modern technology batteries . As a result, that are now being developed for the modern electric and hybrid car manufacturers. Significantly, due to the rush for a more environmentally friendly battery products. Such as the Lithium-Ion ! Now used many car models such as the Nissan leaf and the Toyota Auris hybrids.

In my opinion though, the ever faithful lead acid batteries, that we still use in the millions. Thus, will still be around for many years to come. They have been tried and tested and proven for almost a hundred years since their invention in 1859 by French physicist Gaston Planté.

Nothing much has changed in the past forty years of time

As an old guy then, I have bought and sold batteries now for more than 40 years. Car battery types have had modifications. Additionally, such as different lead alloys. That are now used in the manufacture of the battery plates. Increasing development of casings to help suppress and resist vibrations. Most truck and car ones are now sealed and maintenance free. So the motorists do not have to top them up any more. Although some battery makers have the old fashioned screw tops. So that you can top up the electrolyte when the acid  has evaporated.

The big development came when the AGM lead-acid batteries was invented in 1985 for military use and was developed by Concorde batteries for commercial use outside the military. The AGM (absorbed Glass Matting) lead-acid batteries is completely sealed and now used in hundreds of applications, although once again these batteries may be slowly replaced by the Lithium-Ion batteries. I know that some golf trolley ones are coming out in Lithium-Ion, but at the moment they are very expensive and golfers have a reputation of shall we say, “not putting their hands in their pockets”. The Lithium-Ion’s  were also developed for the military and used on the stealth bombers and they were also used in space flight and on the Mars Lander Craft “Curiosity”.

Another recent development of the lead-acid batteries

So a new introduction has been the introduction of “stop Start” technology. Used on some new models of cars. This was developed by the World’s leading battery company, Johnson Controls. The trade name that they use for these batteries is Varta batteries. What happens is when the car stops the engine is switched off and

when the car wants to set off again the accelerator is pressed and the car restarts. The batteries for this job have to be more powerful that the standard lead acid battery and so the AGM battery lead-acid batteries are used.

In my opinion the lead acid battery will be further developed and used on other applications that have not been invented yet, and will still be a player in the crazy mixes of the development of the modern car, their big advantage is that they are almost 100% recyclable, which is more than can be said about the lithium-Ion batteries.
