Deep Cycle, AGM and Lithium Batteries

Lithium Batteries are proving to be a popular choice due to their expected 10 year
lifecycle (under ideal conditions).

Make sure your battery is a sealed AGM type battery if installed inside the vehicle
as Deep cycle lead acid batteries emit hydrogen and acidic vapours which can be
dangerous and harmful to you and your vehicle.
We stock quality Century Batteries and Enerdrive Lithium.

Electric Brakes

We have found over the years that brake controllers without a pendulum or inertia
sensor are most suited for off-road applications all other caravan electric brake
systems should use a device that incorporates an inertia sensor. We stock all
Tekonsha brake controllers and the complete range of Redarc electronic brake
controllers and have equipment to test and diagnose problems with electric brakes.

left flat for a time, so having a suitable 240 volt to 12 volt battery charger is
very important. we use Enerdrive and Projector battery chargers and have found them
to be good value for money with excellent support across australia.
