As standard we use high capacity AGM dry cell leisure battery with an intelligent split charge system or B2B chargers. The battery is better at dealing with the constant high currents and draws in your motorhome than any acid battery that most converters use. The AGM battery is able to deliver high current on demand and offers a relatively long service life. They take a lot less time to charge than your normal wet cell battery and they are a completely sealed battery and vibration resistant whereas the acid wet cell batteries are not and can expel flammable gases.
We can then either fit an intelligent split charge system or a battery to battery charger.
An intelligent split charge relay is a small item which is fitted to connect the two batteries in your vehicle together (vehicle battery and leisure battery).
When the vehicle is switched on and sat on tick over or whilst you’re driving it detects which of the two batteries has the lowest amount of charge in them and tell your vehicle alternator which battery to charge first. When both batteries are of similar charge, they will then both be charging at the same time.
A battery to battery charge system is used for newer vehicles as their alternators no longer charge a vehicle battery beyond 80% of charge. This is to leave room for a regenerative braking system which is also used to charge the vehicle battery.
This mean the vehicle does not charge to sufficient volts to operate a traditional voltage sensing relay. Any vehicle with stop start and regenerative breaking (which is most vehicles from 2012 on and now all Euro 6 vehicles) will have to have this system fitted.
All older vehicles without smart alternators have the choice of fitting this system if they wish. This system is a much more efficient way of charging any leisure battery as this does not use the vehicles alternator to charge the leisure battery.
