Why Do I Need Dual Battery Installation?

All cars have what is known as a starter battery which is used to start the engine and power the other components of your standard vehicle. As more accessories are added to vehicles like is normal for a camping vehicle the battery will become more strained and you run the risk of not being able to start your vehicle or power your accessories. This is why it's essential that you add auxiliary battery systems to power the extras you need.


What Dual Battery System Options Are There?

There are a number of different ways you can set up your dual battery system:

  • Basic Isolators: Similar to dual battery systems of the past a basic isolator is like a manual switch however it instead of being able to control the switch yourself it is instead controlled by the ignition. A basic isolator is the most cost effective style of dual battery system.
  • Smart Isolators: A smart isolator has the same switch as a basic isolator but rather than being controlled by the ignition it is instead turned on and off at certain voltages. This option is more expensive than the basic isolator but we recommend this dual battery install option as they’re able to keep the auxiliary battery disconnected until the starter battery is fully charged meaning that you will always have enough power to start your engine.
  • DC-DC Charging System: This is what we recommend installing in your vehicle if you have a second battery in your car. If you have a lithium battery the smart charging stages will also increase the battery life and efficiency both when running your battery and not.

What Battery Types Can You Use?

  • Flooded Lead Acid Battery: Flooded Lead Acid Battery these are the oldest and most common and cheapest type of batteries in use. They can handle regular starting of the engine which makes them a greater starter battery.
  • Lithium: Lithium batteries are slowly becoming more popular in cars as they are lightweight and powerful making them the ultimate battery technology.
  • Absorbent Glass Mat: Absorbent Glass Mat batteries are essentially leak-proof which means that they are safe to install in any configuration. This coupled with their slow discharge rate means that these batteries are a great option for an auxiliary battery if the space in your vehicle is limited.
  • Gel Cell: Gel cell batteries use gel acid rather than liquid acid used in AGM batteries which makes them spill proof and maintenance free.
