Choosing a leisure battery for your caravan, camper, motorhome or boat can be quite difficult if you don't know what to look for. At Tayna we offer a wide range of leisure batteries to cater for all leisure applications. Leisure batteries can firstly be broken down to the standard wet lead acid battery type such as the Powerline 678 Leisure battery and the Powerline 679 Leisure Battery. Then there's the wet sealed lead acid battery type such as the Numax CXV24MF 86Ah Sealed Leisure Battery; the Gel Battery type such as the Sonnenschein Gel SL80 or the Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) Battery type like the Optima YT S 4.2 Battery.
We carry the full range of Numax Leisure Batteries, Numax Sealed Leisure Batteries, Optima Leisure Batteries, Sonnenschein Leisure Batteries and Varta Leisure Batteries. Our latest range of leisure batteries are the Elecsol Leisure Batteries range with a full 5 year guarantee.
To decide which type is best for you depends on a number of factors. The standard wet lead acid leisure battery is generally the cheapest on the market. They are cost effective but need maintaining and are more prone to damage caused by discharging and generally have a shorter service life than other leisure batteries. The sealed wet leisure battery needs no maintenance, will hold its charge for longer and are safer as they cannot leak electrolyte like a standard leisure battery. AGM and Gel leisure batteries are able to cope with more charge - discharge cycles during their service life and will hold their charge far longer. They are also used for more specialist applications as they do not gas as much as other batteries and are completely leak proof. The AGM batteries also have the advantage of being extremely resistant to vibration.
The next thing to consider when buying a leisure battery is what you'll be running off the battery, like a fridge, lights, tv etc. If you calculate how many amps your appliances will be using it makes it a lot easier to select the correct leisure battery. Another consideration is whether you are going to be away from a charging source for certain periods of time. The longer you are away from a charging point the bigger the battery's capacity (Ah figure) will have to be.
The battery's capacity, measured in Amp Hours (Ah), is a measure of how much energy the battery can store. The bigger the Ah value the more energy can be stored and therefore will last longer between charges for similar loads. Generally the bigger the battery, the higher its Ah value will be. This is when you'll have to compromise if your battery tray restricts you to a certain size of battery.
Whichever leisure battery you choose it will need to be kept in good condition to fulfill its maximum service life. This can be done by using a good charger to keep it charged when not in use. This keeps the battery healthy and prevents sulphation of the battery plates. For standard wet leisure batteries a simple battery charger can be used to charge it monthly when not in use. For sealed AGM and Gel leisure batteries it is best to use an automatic charger like the CTEK MXS 5.0 Battery Charger or the CTEK MULTI XS 3600 Charger. The CTEK MULTI XS 7000 Battery Charger will be needed for larger leisure batteries.
Motorbike batteries are another of our popular lines. Bike electronics have progressed immensely in the last few years, having new technologies in line with cars such as ABS. These new electronic systems put pressure on the bike battery which has led to development of new motorcycle battery technology in the form of sealed motorcycle batteries.
Forklift batteries are made up of a combination of 2V cells wired in series usually resulting in a 48V battery pack. They can be difficult to fit due to their size and weight and are traditionally very costly to replace. However, we have teamed up with some of the best names in the industry so that we can offer FLT batteries on a supply and fit basis (where required) at great prices.
Lucas 2V forklift battery cells are our preferred brand as they produce high quality batteries that are designed with a long service life in mind. Our forklift battery team can offer a full design and build service including fabrication of a new battery container and/or ballast where desired. Our field engineers cover the whole of the UK and can fit at a date and time to suit you.
There are many different brands of mobility scooter battery and wheelchair batteries. At Tayna we offer six brands to help cater for people buying on a budget to people looking for the best of the best. All of our mobility batteries are either sealed lead acid or gel. To choose the correct battery for your application you need to check the capacity (Ah) of the battery already on the scooter or wheelchair. Some mobility scooters/wheelchairs have room for larger batteries than the manufacturer has fitted which will give a greater journey range and longer time in between recharging.
A mobility scooter battery is classed by it's Ah value in the following manner: 7Ah Mobility Batteries, 12Ah Mobility Batteries, 18Ah - 22Ah Mobility Batteries, 24Ah - 26Ah Mobility Batteries, 31Ah - 34Ah Mobility Batteries, 40Ah - 44Ah Mobility Batteries, 50Ah Mobility Batteries and 70Ah Mobility Batteries. These are the main values which differentiate the physical size of mobility scooter batteries. All of these sizes can be found on our website manufactured by Yuasa, Numax, MK, Sonnenschein and Budget.
Most Mobility scooters and wheelchairs are fitted with two 12 Volt batteries wired in series to create a 24 Volt system. These two batteries are usually charged using an automatic 24V battery charger. There are many types of mobility scooter charger depending on battery size and manufacturers unique plug system. The most popular is the three pin (3-pin) plug which inserts directly into the scooters battery system. If this is not the case a normal 24V automatic charger with crocodile clips can be used.
If you cannot decide on which battery you need, you can use our Mobility Scooter and Wheelchair Battery fitment guide or call us on 01745 823399 for assistance.
