We stock a huge range of:
*FLOODED DEEP CYCLE- Traditional 'wet style ' batteries that can be discharged and recharged and that require 'topping up. Great for under the bonnet applications or caravans, RVs and camper trailers that have outside access to the batteries where the customer can maintain them.
*MAINTENANCE FREE DEEP CYCLE- Also known as RV batteries, these products still use wet cell technology but are completely maintenance free i.e. you can't access them the take care of themselves. These batteries can be fitted under the bonnet or easy to access areas where they can still 'breathe'. They are convenient for the person with low use cycling applications who doesn't want the hassle of maintaining their deep cycle battery. I.e. perfect for the 4-5 time a year camper!
* AGM-absorbed glass matt batteries are made for high use hard to get at places i.e. under the bed cavity in a caravan or camper where every bit of space needs to be utilised. This form of manufacturing uses the sulphuric acid in a gel form, which is injected/absorbed into the fibre glass matt separators and then the plates are 'sandwiched' between. This type of process utilises every bit of the active plates and thus gives high performance cycling capabilities within a completely 'sealed' case. Perfect for tight spaces and 'in vehicle' applications.
These batteries require multi-stage type chargers and can be charged via the vehicles alternator provided that a DC-DC Converter is fitted, depending on the vehicle make.

*lights@ 25 watts each = 50 watts / divide by the system volts 12v x multiply by the hours you'll use it for 5hours=20.83
*fridge at 60 watts= 60 watts/ 12v x 8 =40.00
*radio at 80watts= 80 watts/ 12 v x 3 =19.99
Add these totals together =80.82
