TRUCK BATTERIES BRISBANE
SUPERIOR QUALITY 12V & 24V DEEP CYCLE AGM TRUCK BATTERY
50 CCA TO 1050 CCA WITH 12 MONTHS TO 48 MONTHS WARRANTY
Whether it’s a big rig, a tractor or earth moving equipment, Batco has a solution for accommodating your truck battery needs. Maintainable and sealed maintenance free available.
Larger trucks may have two different battery groups: normal batteries for truck operations/engine starting and deep cycle batteries for stand-by/auxiliary systems of sleeper cab lighting/ entertainment modules and cooling when parked or to support auxiliary equipment such as tailgate lifters of removal trucks.
The system should be set up to give preferential charging to the main batteries. This is normally done in the off-road camper / outdoor RV markets.
Deep cycle batteries can come in flooded or AGM style construction.
FLOODED DEEP CYCLE BATTERY
AGM (ABSORBED GLASS MAT) BATTERY
WHY AGM IS THE BEST TRUCK BATTERY REPLACEMENT
Batco recommends the AGM style as this is the newest technology for use in RV / Caravans but important to remember they do not like heat such as an engine bay. They are built for maximum capacity and high cycle count. Although the battery is designed for cycling, full discharges still induce stress. Batco advises keeping the cycles moderate by avoiding a full discharge and charge the battery often.
Deep cycle batteries are specially designed with denser active material and thicker plates to withstand deep discharge-recharge service. They are also reinforced glass mat separators to reduce shedding of the active ingredient and damage from terrain vibration. Typically, starting car batteries use porous active material and thin plates so that high-amp energy can quickly be delivered for maximum starting power. Repeated cycling weakens the positive plates and makes the active material shed from the grids. Thus repeated use flattens the battery, this typically occurs in about 50 cycles.
Truck batteries are often 24V also, opposed to car batteries which are 12V. It is possible to run two 12V batteries to deliver the same charge but not recommended if it can be avoided.
