LEISURE BATTERIES

Choosing the correct battery & explaining NCC ratings

 

Choosing the correct leisure battery is all about understanding your power usage. The Numax leisure range covers all situations, applications and levels of power usage depending on what you need from your battery. Leisure battery performance is measured in cycles; these cycles are what determine their NCC rating. Battery cycles refer to the number of discharge/recharge cycles the battery is capable of when discharged by up to 50% between recharging. The biggest energy consumers in the average leisure vehicle are televisions, microwaves, kettles and hair dryers and motor movers.

The NCC scheme rates leisure batteries either Class A, B or C. It’s important to note that this rating does not represent the quality of the battery, rather the cyclic ability of the battery. A battery’s Cycles and AH are what determine its NCC rating. The NCC verified scheme helps consumers to identify batteries trusted by the NCC (National Caravan Council). Many customer may disregard a C rated battery in favour of an A rated battery; however, they may not require the cyclic capacity the A rated battery provides if they mostly use electrical hook-up.

The Numax LV range is NCC rated C, the DC range is B rated and the Numax XDC25AGM and XDT30MF are A rated batteries.

Below you’ll find some tips and advice for charging a leisure battery. Numax Leisure chargers are specifically designed for Leisure applications and are really easy to use.

DO:

  • Ensure your batteries are wired and installed in the correct manner.

  • Charge your battery after purchase and prior to each use.
    Keep the terminals and posts free from corrosion – lightly coat with petroleum jelly.

  • Always keep your battery fully charged – even when not in use! When not in use, store in a cool and dry environment connected to an intelligent charger.

  • Always keep the battery upright and adequately secured.

  • Always apply a charge to the battery at the end of the season and remove it from caravan/motorhome where possible or use a permanently connected intelligent charger.

  • Check your caravan/motorhome for systems that draw a constant charge – e.g. tracker or alarm – as you will need to counter this draw with a constant re-charge to maintain the battery.

DON’T

  • Never over discharge your battery. Try to keep voltage from dropping below 12.3v. The deeper you discharge your battery, the fewer number of cycles you will achieve.

  • Never leave your battery in a discharged state for a prolonged period of time.

  • Never reverse the polarity on your battery charging leads as this may damage the battery and charger.

ELECTRIC FENCE BATTERIES

FIT ONE CHARGE ONE

 

‘Fit one charge one’ is the perfect solution for people who use electric fencing.
 

Simply use one of the two NUMAX CXT batteries to power your electric fence whilst the other one is connected to the NUMAX ‘connect + forget’ charger’. When the working battery needs recharging simply swap them over.
 

The NUMAX CTX batteries contain a vast amount of energy in a very small package. That makes them ideal for carrying to and from the charging station.
