Understanding your electrical usage is critical to selecting the right battery.
‘Standard Equipment’ is simply the electrical equipment supplied with the leisure vehicle. ‘Additional Equipment’ refers to those electrical items brought in to the vehicle for use during your vacation (portable DVD player, laptop/tablet, kitchen appliances etc).
Having defined your electrical equipment, you can then determine the electrical usage during your leisure break. In simple terms, we classify this usage as either ‘low, ‘medium’ or ‘high’.For example, if you spend very little time in your caravan preferring the‘back to nature’ type of leisure break, the Platinum Leisure or Leisure Plus range is the perfect choice.
Another variable to consider is how frequently the leisure battery is used in the leisure application.
For example, if you are using your caravan or Motorhome on a daily basis you will put more demands on the battery compared to if you are simply using it for the occasional leisure vacation.
Most campsites provide options to hook up to the site’s power supply, which can bypass the need to draw power directly from the leisure battery.
With this in mind you need to determine what percentage of your leisure breaks are spent on or off grid. For example, if you typically spend 50% to 60% ‘on grid’ we recommend the Platinum Leisure or Leisure Plus range.
Should your leisure breaks be 70% to 90% ‘off grid’ then we highly recommend the Trojan AGM or Trojan Gel range.
