Leisure battery LV22MF Numax leisure

LV22MF Numax leisure Batteries are amongst the best batteries available to the Caravan and Motorhome community, not forgetting the lucky people who own a river craft or a canal pleasure boat.

All these types of leisure vehicles require Leisure battery LV22MF Numax leisure. or a number of batteries to supply them with electricity. especially where there are no main power points. Usually in the middle of nowhere or at a remote canal boat mooring.

Numax are not necessarily cheap leisure batteries. But they are one of the more reliable battery products. Of course, for this market usage. In fact, I have only ever seen one faulty Numax battery. As a result, in the six years since I began selling them,

Numax leisure

The Leisure Market battery products are always on display. Hence, at some of the country’s top leisure and outdoor shows Because of this, the Numax name has become very popular. Also because of the internet, the price of the Numax Caravan battery has actually come down. So, this is now one of our best-selling products that we offer online.

The most popular battery is the XV31MF battery. This is a 110-amp model and is our best seller at the time of my writing this article. The LV26MF battery from Leisure Battery is a 100-ampere-hour battery.

This is a 75-amp battery and is used for the person who goes away at weekends and the occasional two-week holiday. When the first motorhome battery came out, the industry used the regular car battery; in fact, the 100-amp leisure battery was derived from the 250-amp car battery. The car battery was modified with thicker cables to hold more charge and was then known as the LV26MF battery for leisure use. The original 250 car battery was a starter battery and had to provide the power up front to start a car.

As the leisure market began to grow, so did the size of the caravans and motorhomes. This meant that bigger batteries were needed, because portable televisions and fridges could fit into the larger vehicles. In the early days, these came in the form of truck batteries, which were the largest batteries available. This led to the development of the XV31MF leisure battery, which once again had thicker plates to store more power as the truck battery was a starter battery and needed the power up front to start the vehicle.

One thing that has surprised me is that more people do not connect two LV22MF batteries together. These batteries are LV22MF Numax leisure batteries, and connected together in “parallel” will give you a 75 x 2 capacity, which is 150 amps, a much larger capacity than a XV31MF battery would have. The main criteria is that you use the two exact same leisure batteries and the same number of amps, the system will remain at 12 volts, and in my opinion, it would be worth looking into.

017 EFB Batteries

017 EFB Batteries-here in the UK

So,  bringing this post up to date in 2021 then the EFB battery is becoming very popular. Happily for us the winter of 2020/21 has become a very cold snowy winter. Whist most people hate the bad weather then of course we love it. Cold weather means a little more business for us. Specialist products give us a few more sales than normal. However, this year is the year when batteries on new car sales from a few years ago are due to be replaced! Including the start-stop batteries known as the EFB and the AGM.

Vehicle owners will have noticed by now that these batteries are more expensive than a regular car battery. Of course the batteries are different due to technology and more expensive parts inside the battery.

Numax EFB batteries a great mid range battery

So, when sourcing a good priced battery for my customers I finally chose the Numax brand.  Firstly, Numax are available at the moment! Like many other products then batteries are suffering shortage problems. Mainly due to the massive demand from consumers after battery factories were shut down due to the “Corona Virus Pandemic”. This is causing, massive shipping problems with stock orders going out of the window.

However, Numax and Lucas are now the same products and are coming through at regular intervals.

Lucas brand AGM Batteries

There has been an increasing degree of partnership with Japanese corporations. Such as with Sumitomo on car-body systems . Or Yuasa Battery Company. In response to the growing likelihood that Japanese components firms. Therefore, will make inroads into the European market . So as deeply as they already have in the United States. Lucas Automotive have had  success in 1989 in attracting orders. From BMW and Saab-Scania . Thus, for fuel injection systems . Was an indication of its ability . Hence, to compete directly in Europe… http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/lucas-industries-plc-history/

As we can see in this. History of the Lucas company . Then, Lucas were doing cross country deals. In the expanding car component sector. Including, a deal that was struck with Yuasa batteries of Japan. As a result, these batteries went under the Lucas batteries brand name. They were imported with many battery part numbers .Coming into the UK and the USA that were unfamiliar to the British battery manufacturers .

Yuasa batteries actually started producing batteries in the USA in 1979. Producing car and AGM batteries . Hence, in 1996 the great Lucas empire. Merged with the American company Varity Corporation and the UK part of the company.

“Now trading under the name of ‘Lucas Electrical’ . Then the company concentrates on after-market component supply. Rather than as an original equipment supplier to manufacturers. Initially, the Lucas name was used on Elta’s existing products . Automotive light bulbs but has been gradually expanded to cover much the same range as the original Lucas company- light units, batteries, switches and controls, ignition components, re manufactured starter motors and alternators, wiper blades and electrical accessories. Operations and manufacturing take place at several locations in the UK as well as overseas”… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LucasVarity

This is the stage that the Lucas battery label in the famous green and white Lucas colours was sold off to a British Battery company in the Midlands.
