Marine Battery 'Cycling'

A Marine 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 marina. There are three different Marine battery technologies used that each deliver increasing numbers of cycles and duration (time) per cycle, which in turn equates to more Marine hours ‘off grid’.

The Platinum Marine and Marine Plus range are Marine batteries designed for the ‘Marine Explorer’.

The Platinum AGM range best suits the ‘Regular Canal/Lake Navigator’ and delivers up to 5 times longer life and up to 3 times faster recharge capabilities than the standard Marine range.

Electrical Usage

Understanding your electrical usage is critical to selecting the right battery.

‘Standard Equipment’ is simply the electrical equipment supplied with the
Marine vessel. ‘Additional Equipment’ refers to those electrical items brought in to the vessel 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 Marine break. In simple terms, we classify this usage as either ‘low, ‘medium’ or ‘high’.

For example, if you spend very little time in your cabin preferring the ‘back to nature’ type of Marine break, the Platinum Marine or Marine 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 AGM is best suited.

Duration of Break
The duration of your Marine pursuit is another key consideration. The
Platinum Marine or Marine Plus range is best suited to the Marine enthusiasts venturing out for weekend breaks or an annual weeks holiday. The Platinum AGM range is perfect for the longer open water adventures around the UK or Europe.
Berth of Your Vessel
The size (berth) of your Marine vessel and standard onboard electrical equipment determines which battery is best suited to your needs. For example, a 2 to 4 berth vessel will be best suited to the Platinum Marine & Marine Plus range.
Frequency of Use
Another variable to consider is how frequently the Marine battery is used in the Marine application. For example, if you are using your Narrowboat or Yacht on a daily basis you will put more demands on the battery compared to if you are simply using it for the occasional Marine vacation.
Hook Up

The distance travelled is a key consideration when selecting your Marine battery, as there will be constant usage of the battery. For example, if you are travelling under 10 miles, the Platinum Marine battery is perfect, if, however, you are more likely to travel 10-20 miles on your Marine pursuit, the Platinum Marine Plus battery would be better suited.

Similarly, if you are looking to venture a little further each day, 30 – 40 miles, the Platinum AGM will be better suited as they will power you for longer.

Battery Charging
Marine batteries are specifically designed to be cycled and, therefore, it is critical that the battery is recharged immediately following your return from vacation. Leaving a Marine 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.
