Trojan Leisure Batteries

Trojan leisure batteries are more expensive but can last up to twice longer

Solar charging including, 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.

Trojan Leisure Batteries

These new types of  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. So, 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. Hence, 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.Consequently, if for some reason the battery overheats. Or for some other reason such as very high temperatures. Of course, this can happen but is very rare. In fact I have only seen one leisure battery that has exploded. As a result, 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,

Owning a vehicle has also become supposedly easier because there are more options now and the used auto industry is more organized and sophisticated – thanks to the Internet and e-commerce.

Cold cranking amps or CCA refers to your power rating in terms of its ability to start your vehicle and supply electrical power even during extremely cold weather. Naturally, you will have to choose a new product with a rating higher than or equal to car’s original one. This will ensure that your car will continue to operate smoothly even in the harshest winters. Last but not least is the brand of the car battery. There are many brands to choose from but only a handful are reliable and of good quality. In the UK, you can easily find Lucas Premium Batteries for any type of vehicle.

Lucas 038 Car Batteries from Manbat

038 Car Batteries

038 Car Batteries

lucas has always been a well known name in the field of car electrics. Unfortunately the original company split up and the different sections were sold off or indeed the brand names were sold off. This was the same with the Battery section of the company .The Lucas battery franchise was originally bought by Energy batteries in the Corby area, unfortunately Energy went into the hands of the receivers. The Lucas franchise was then bought by Manbat in 2009 and trades its own battery products under the name of Lucas. Although Lucas do not make their own 038 Car Batteries Manbat use batteries of excellent quality for their premium 038 Car Batteries range and the Classic range of batteries. We  at www. batteriesontheweb.co.uk  are the Yorkshire dealers for these excellent products.

Lucas batteries

“Now, in its most noticeable move to date, Manbat has made fundamental changes to the existing packaging. Core to the re-branding objective was to make the Lucas name and green colour scheme far more prominent than on the previous design, which only carried a small Lucas logo with a hint of green. The new design however, brings the green that the brand has been historically associated with and the Lucas name to the fore through an attractive design that stands out from the competition and emphasis the brands heritage”...http://www.totalkitcar.com/2012/08/16/power-packed-new-packaging/

The 038 Car Batteries also fits other battery applications. The 038 Car Batteries are used mainly on classic cars. The early mini’s and Austin Alegro cars were all fitted with the 038 Car Batteries. The battery also fitted cars made by Vauxhall cars. This includes the best selling Viva range in the 1960’s and some of the Triumph groups cars. This included the Triumph Spitfires and saloon cars such as the herald and the Vitesse.

Many battery companies change labels every so often. It is a way of telling when a battery was made. This helps them with warranty claims. Many claims are rejected because they can tell how old the label is.
