What to look for when buying your leisure battery?
When looking to purchase a leisure battery, looking for a cheap battery is not always the best thing to do, everyone knows the phrase “you get what you pay for” this certainly applies for leisure batteries, why spend money on your motorhome or boat to then go ahead and fit a leisure battery that’s going to let you down and ruin your experience. Here at Mojo Products we only supply premium leisure batteries from reputable manufacturers. Battery manufacturers we use are Monbat and Excide. Monbat batteries have a higher, reliable specification because the batteries are made of a purer lead and the plates are larger and more compact, offering you more power, cycles and deeper discharges. Exide batteries are all about quality, as a company they pride themselves on creating a brighter future, with their mission being to produce innovative quality products to the industry. The leisure range is small but will cover a range of needs.
The Monbat XL110LB is 100ah and 190mm high making it the perfect height for a compact space, e.g. under the passenger seat. The Monbat XLM110E is larger and has 115Ah which gives you the extra power especially if you have a motor mover. If you require a smaller battery, we sell the Monbat XLM85E at 75Ah; they are all 12-volt leisure batteries. Gel and AGM batteries are becoming much more popular, we sell sealed Gel leisure batteries online within our Excide range which includes the ES900 sealed Gel Battery at 80ah.
4 key points to weigh up when choosing your leisure battery:
- Fit & Space
- Cyclic Life
Size is important when choosing your leisure battery; making sure you measure the space to ensure you can install your chosen battery.
Watt-hours represent the amount of power the battery can supply when fully charged. You need to figure out how many watts you require so your battery can efficiently supply power to all your appliances. For example, 5 light bulbs rated at 20 watts for 4 hours takes 4 x 20 x 4 = 320-watt hours. All appliances on your motor mover need to be considered.
The cyclic life of the battery means how many times can the battery be discharged to 50% then fully recharge. The higher the number of cycles the more work the battery can do during its years in service.
The Ah refers to the capacity of the battery, the higher the Ah the longer it will operate your appliances.
Leisure batteries compared to car and motorcycle batteries
Leisure batteries differ from car and motorcycle batteries as they provide a steady supply of power over a prolonged period. Leisure batteries are not used as a start-up power supply, unlike a car battery or motorcycle battery; they make use of larger and squarer plates to give the ability of deep discharges.
