The right battery will take hassle out of your trip

Going on a road trip is probably high up on the list of the most exciting things in life. Packing a caravan and going places requires decent preparation and planning. We have asked experts how to choose the correct caravan battery for a hassle-free experience.

There are several factors to consider before you search online or in-store:

Battery Type: There are two main types of batteries used for caravans: lead-acid batteries (such as Aeson Power’s DC range) and lithium-ion batteries (for example, Hresys 12V range). Lead-acid batteries are more affordable and have a long lifespan if well maintained, while lithium-ion batteries are more expensive but offer both higher performance and long lifespan.

Battery Capacity: The battery capacity is measured in ampere-hours (Ah) and determines how much power the battery can provide over a specific period of time. Consider the power consumption of your caravan appliances and go for a battery with sufficient capacity.

Battery Size: The battery size will depend on the available space in your caravan’s battery compartment. Ensure that the chosen battery can fit into the designated area.

Charging System: Determine the type of charging system you have in your caravan and choose a battery that is compatible with it. Some batteries may require a very specific charger or charging method. Charge Voltage for Lithium batteries is different to charge Voltage of lead acid batteries.

Maintenance Requirements: Consider the maintenance requirements of the chosen battery. Lead-acid batteries may require periodic maintenance such as cleaning the terminals, while lithium-ion batteries are virtually maintenance-free.

Useful Features: some lithium batteries have Bluetooth connectivity. They have a wireless Bluetooth transmitter that lets you manage the Battery Management System (BMS) using free software called Smart Connect available on Android devices. You can check the battery capacity or State of Charge (SoC), voltage, temperature, charge or discharge current simply by opening the application on a compatible smart phone or tablet.

Price: Finally, consider the price of the battery and choose one that fits within your budget. Aeson Power offers a range of batteries that suit any budget and application.
