Custom Battery Installation
You have the vehicle of your dreams that you have fitted out for camping and you can’t wait to get on the road.
But first, you need expert advice on the correct auxiliary battery to install to make sure everything runs smoothly once you’re in the great outdoors.
Battery Barn can advise, supply and install from a range of auxiliary batteries for your car or SUV. You will be able to run fridges, light up your campsite, cook meals, charge your camera or mobile battery and get your vehicle started the next morning.
You may choose from either a combination starter / deep cycle battery or a starting type of battery. Starter-type auxiliaries have lots of cold-cranking amps which will start your engine and power your 12V items, though the battery life may be a little reduced.
A combination starter / deep cycle battery will deliver the power you need, start or jump-start your vehicle and can handle continuous use.
A deep cycle battery runs until drained and may take a little longer to charge, but comes in a variety of sizes.
An auxiliary battery charges from your vehicle’s charging system, therefore an isolator is required to connect the auxiliary battery to the vehicle battery. It disconnects the two batteries when the vehicle is switched off so the main battery is not drained, even if the auxiliary battery runs low. An isolator may be either a solenoid type great for older vehicles, or DCDC charger the same as a home battery charger, which keeps the battery in top condition.
We will provide and install the appropriate battery and isolating system which custom-fits into the most suitable position in your camper or vehicle.
Once your auxiliary and isolating system are installed you’ll be all set to keep the family happy with everything they need to make camping easy, safe and most importantly, a time of fellowship and fun!
