RECREATION AND LEISURE BATTERIES FOR LONG-TERM DISCHARGE

POWER TO TAKE ALONG WITH YOU

Long-term discharge batteries – providing electrical system power for hobby and leisure activities

 

The Banner long-term discharge batteries are specialised, professional batteries that stand out from the rest and like professionals,
they do their job in a way that’s perfectly suited for their field of application and uncompromising in their quality.
Among other things, they provide portable energy for sailing and electric boats, yachts, camper vans and motor homes, camping/caravanning and the solar sector.

 

Banner Tip: It’s best to use a starter battery to start the engine. Banner offers original batteries from initial equipping with the Running Bull EFB and the Power Bull PROfessional. (Original equipping quality for replacement needs).

Leading motor home manufacturers, such as Knaus Tabbert Reisemobile, rely on the best Banner batteries from the Running Bull series as their original equipment.  

What type of camper are you?

 

We have a comprehensive range batteries for camping and caravanning (electrical system power supply and engine start), which offer the perfect combination of performance and durability to suit every kind of leisure activity.
With this in mind, we have developed an easy-to-use battery selection chart that allows people who love recreation activities to match their specific energy requirements to the right battery.

 

Our simple and straightforward table will help you to find the right long-term discharge battery/batteries) for your activity, which is exactly what you’re looking for. 3 product variants and a total of 3 battery technologies (lead-acid conventional, AGM*, gel**) are available.

Because as a lover of the outdoors you’re going to want to enjoy every minute you spend in the great outdoors. It makes no difference whether you’re off to admire ancient sites, visit national parks, enjoy a city break, put camping sites to the test, are a passionate winter camper or simply explore the countries of Europe. You must make sure you have a reliable electrical system power supply that is optimally suited to your type of leisure holiday.

 

*AGM - Absorbent Glass Mat, where the acid is absorbed in a glass mat, meaning that it cannot leak

VRLA - Valve Regulated Lead Acid, i.e. a valve-regulated lead-acid battery with AGM technology.

 

**Gel - Electrolyte is embedded in gel, binding it.

Good to know! 

A motor home almost always uses a combination of starter batteries for starting the engine and long-term discharge batteries for supplying all additional electrical/electronic consumers (e.g. lights, fridge, entertainment system, etc.).

 

Please note: Despite costing more, a battery with higher cycle stability can pay off over its lifetime, but this always depends on the particular application. In addition, buyers can save on costs for often complex installation and removal including new purchase and transportation.  

 

Banner tip: When operating 230V devices (e.g. hair dryer, kettle or coffee machine) via an inverter (add approx. 15% to the watt specification) because that much energy is lost when operating the inverter! An inverter (also called a power inverter or rotary converter) is an electrical device that converts direct current into alternating current.

What battery will I need for my motor home?

 

You can calculate the capacity requirement of batteries for motor homes and marine vessels as electrical system batteries yourself. To the right, you can see an example of how to determine the power requirement for your use.

 

Required battery: Energy Bull 96801  K5=180Ah

 

If the average power-on time is approx. 5 hours, the K5 is used. If it’s approx. 20 hours, the K20 is used and if approx. 100 hours, the K100. With conventional batteries, the safety factor (to prevent deep discharges) should normally be 1.7 (1.3 with recombination batteries, i.e. AGM and gel).

Marine batteries

 

We have a comprehensive range batteries for motor homes or marine vessels (electrical system power supply and engine start), which offer the perfect combination of performance and durability to suit every kind of recreational activity. The same question always pops up: „What battery will I need for my boat engine?“ With this in mind, we have developed an easy-to-use battery selection chart that allows people who love marine activities to find the right battery for their boat.

 

What battery will I need for my boat?

 

Our simple and straightforward table will help you find the right long-term discharge battery/batteries) for your activity, which is exactly what you’re looking for. 3 product variants and a total of 3 battery technologies (conventional lead acid, AGM, gel) are available for batteries for motor homes and marine vessels


Whether you’re known as Captain Leisure or Skipper on the seas, you’re going to want to enjoy every minute you spend in the open water. It doesn’t matter whether you spend your weekends sailing inland lakes or rivers or you’re discovering coastal waters or the open sea, participating in an ocean regatta or sailing off around the world. You must ensure that you’ve a reliable electrical system power supply that best suits what you’re using the battery for: You can rely on a reliable power supply with a Banner marine battery!
