Leisure Batteries 

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. 

Key FactATS Euromaster offer a FREE Battery Check for your caravan and a 2 year guarantee on all leisure batteries.

What leisure battery do I need?

There are a number of considerations you need to make when buying a leisure battery, as they come in a number of shapes and sizes and equally importantly, power output. When it comes to choosing a battery, opting for one with a higher power output could give better performance and last longer.

If you plan on heading staying at a camping site with power outlets, a battery with a lower output should work just as well, however the power provided from these outlets can vary from 5 amps to 20 or more, so a good battery can provide additional power when needed.

For more help on deciding on the best battery for your needs, our team of expert engineers will be more than happy to help find your ideal battery.

Leisure battery chargers 

Unlike a car battery, which gets recharged by the car’s alternator, not all leisure batteries are automatically recharged when the vehicle’s engine is running. Many motorhomes have a built-in charger that allow for this, but in some instances the battery will need to be recharged from a mains outlet.

Specific leisure battery chargers are available, although generators and solar panels are also popular alternatives if you need to charge your battery without having access to a mains outlet.

Platinum Leisure Batteries 

At ATS Euromaster we offer a range of Platinum leisure batteries to meet your requirements.

Platinum batteries include:

  • Thick-grid plate technology with glass fibre separators- Increases electrical capacity and deep-cycle capability.
  • Labyrinth lid technology- Allows emissions to be safely exhausted externally from the caravan or motor home.
  • State of Charge Indicator- Easy to use visual indicator to check the battery’s charge and acid levels
  • Spill-proof labyrinth lid- Prevents water loss and the need for topping up.
  • Sealed dual post option- for applications where multiple battery connections are required.
  • Sealed low-box option- Ideal where the fitment location of the battery is restricted.
