Having a good leisure battery is the key to getting the most out of any great holiday in a caravan or motorhome, letting you get all the comforts of home, while out and exploring the countryside.
What is a leisure battery?
Leisure batteries power all of the electrical equipment on-board a caravan or motorhome including the TV, interior lighting and any other electrical appliances (such as the microwave or all-important kettle). Leisure batteries are different to the car battery you might find in the engine bay of a campervan, which is used to start the engine and provide power to the vehicle itself. As such your vehicle may need both a car battery and a leisure battery.
Leisure batteries are designed differently to the battery you will find in your car, which is designed to distribute large amount of energy in short bursts. By comparison, leisure batteries have more of a ‘slow burn’ effect, giving off small amounts of power over a long period of time. As such a car battery won’t work well as a leisure battery for extended periods.
