Battery Chargers

If you have a campervan, motorhome, caravan or boat that has deep-cycle leisure batteries installed then you will want to be able to re-charge it from mains power when available (e.g. site hook-up, shore-power or at home). Leisure batteries differ in construction from vehicle starter batteries and consequently require different charging regimes.

Fixed voltage battery chargers won't achieve full re-charging of a leisure battery because the lead plates are thicker, so charging has to take place in controlled stages with the voltage level being automatically adjusted throughout to ensure full charge absorption. This is where dedicated multi-stage or 'intelligent' charger needs to be used to ensure your battery receives a full, deep charge and its serviceable lifetime is maximised.
