Leisure Batteries

There are 3 main types of leisure battery:

  • Flooded, or Wet cell, leisure batteries - the battery is filled with liquid sulphuric acid (electrolyte) in the conventional way and periodic maintenance (topping up with de-ionised water) may be required. Wet cell leisure batteries are the most commonly used and suitable for most leisure/auxiliary battery applications.
  • AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) leisure batteries - the battery is filled with acid, but the liquid is totally absorbed making AGM batteries non-spill and so that they can be fitted in any orientation, i.e. on their side or at an angle.
  • GEL leisure batteries - the battery is filled with an electrolyte gel thus making them non-spill and GEL batteries can also be fitted in any orientation.
  • GEL and AGM batteries may provide more cycles (battery discharging and recharging) than conventional wet cell batteries and, it is claimed, have deeper cycle parameters, but these advantages must be weighed up against the initial cost.

Split Charge Relays, Systems and kits.

If you're fitting a split charge system from scratch, your vehicle is relatively new and has a complicated engine management system we would recommend using the voltage sensing split charge relay which is easy to fit and requires no connection to the vehicle electrics. Simply wire the relay from your starter battery to your leisure battery. This also avoids any vehicle warranty issues.

Voltage sensing split charge relays and fitting kits are easy to fit as they only need wiring from the starter battery to the leisure battery/batteries. They are suitable for older and also modern vehicles with INTELLIGENT ALTERNATORS, CANBUS and MULTIPLEX wiring systems. With our range of volt sensing/sensitive split chargers there's no need to cut wires or take feeds from other sources (i.e. the vehicle alternator).
