Leisure Battery ‘Cycling'
A leisure battery is specifically designed to be continually ‘cycled’. This means that energy is taken out (discharged) and then energy put back in to the battery (recharged), via a battery charger or during ‘hook up’ at a campsite.
Electrical Usage

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.

If however, your group must have their homely creature comforts at all hours of the
day and night, then the Platinum AGMTrojan AGM or Trojan GEL is best suited.

Duration of Break
The duration of your leisure pursuit is another key consideration. The Platinum Leisure or Leisure Plus range is best suited to the leisure enthusiasts venturing out for weekend breaks or an annual 2 week holiday. The Platinum AGM, Trojan AGM and Trojan GEL ranges are perfect for the longer touring adventures around the UK or Europe.
Berth of Your Vehicle
The size of your caravan, motorhome or Winnebago ‘berth’ and standard on board electrical equipment determines which battery is best suited to your needs. For example, a 2 to 4 berth caravan will be best suited to the Platinum Leisure & Leisure Plus range, whereas a 6 berth Winnebago will require either the Trojan AGM or Trojan GEL range
Frequency of Use
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.
Hook Up

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.

Battery Charging
Leisure batteries are specifically designed to be cycled and therefore it’s critical that the battery is recharged immediately following your return from vacation. Leaving a leisure battery in a discharged state for any length of time will cause damage to the battery, which in turn will result in premature failure or greatly reduced product life.
