When someone tries to discourage you from doing something simply because it has never been done before, remind them that all that has ever been achieved in life, began as something that had never been done before.
Reinforced radial plate grids extend battery life.
Low antimony grid alloy reduces maintenance as a result of water consumption.
Latest technology high performance plates which enables them to withstand frequent and deep charge and discharge cycles.
Glass mat backed leaf separator.
Shock resistant containers and lids.
Tightly packed plates and separators avoid deterioration due to vibration.
RECHARGING THE LEISURE BATTERY
The batteries are charged at a current equivalent to 0.1 times the capacity expressed in Ampere hours (Ah) for a maximum of 15 hours. (12 - 13 hours would normally be sufficient with a constant current charger, but 15 hours may be necessary with a taper charger.)
The duration of the recharge will depend on the extent of the discharge that the battery has experienced. As an example the 50 Ah type RR1 battery that has been utilised for 3 hours for lighting a 100W lamp would have consumed 24.9 Ah and therefore must be charged at 5 Ampere for approximately 6 hours.
HOW TO CALCULATE THE TYPE OF BATTERY YOU NEED:
Hours of functioning
Caravans 1X40W Bulbs
If used together: Capacity required = (13.2+16.8) X 1.25*=37.5Ah use type RR0 The 40 Ah Battery should be selected.
Lighting 2X40W Bulbs
Capacity required=40.2X1.25*=50.25Ah use type RR2
Capacity required=16.8X1.25*=21Ah use type RR0
G.P.S. Navigation System
If used together: Capacity required = 40+0.4+2.1+10=52.5X1.25=65.63Ah use type RR2
*The security factor is used for: Incomplete Charging and Protecting against Over Discharge
