Batteries for Solar
Battery Central Brisbane keeps all of your needs in stock. We sell 12volt stand alone systems for house (off the grid), caravans, motorhomes and boats.
Solar Panels are available in all sizes plus regulators, battery chargers, inverters as well as inexpensive batteries.
Battery Importers of AGM & GEL deep cycle batteries
We are a wholesale importer of the very popular high quality Premium brand of AGM & GEL deep cycle batteries. All which carry a two-year replacement warranty. These deep cycle Premium batteries range from the 12V 7Ah suitable for UPS back up systems and NBN Battery Backups, up to 2V 2000Ah Hollow cell Suitable for off grid systems.
Deep Cycle Batteries
Battery Central Brisbane offers a great range of deep cycle batteries for both commercial and recreational purposes. Deep cycle batteries are designed to provide a constant flow of power over a long period of time although they have the ability to provide a surge if required.
These batteries are designed to be fully discharged regularly and can be done several hundred times (something that would destroy a regular car battery).
Generally a deep cycle battery will carry three times the reserve capacity of car batteries. Most often used in four wheel driving, caravans, camping and in RV’s. As well as pallet jacks, scissor lifts and floor sweepers.
Solar Panels for Charging, maintaining and extending battery life
Battery Central Brisbane stocks solar panels.
Solar panels can maintain and extend your battery time when travelling. We also stock GSL Australian Made solar charge controllers, to control and maintain the power going into your battery from your solar panel.
Solar Battery Storage Options
Many experienced campers first choice for storage and use of solar energy is a flooded battery (see below) for their mid range price and long lifespan. The more long term adventurer may look to an Absorbed Glass Matt AGM battery or a Gel battery as amongst other things they can be stored indoors where less temperature variance means increased performance although you will pay slightly more.
There are three types of deep cycle batteries:
Sealed gel batteries will not release gas when charging like flooded batteries do allowing them to be used indoors. This is advantageous, as a battery at a constant temperature will perform better.
These are a lead acid battery with caps to allow water to be added and are often designed specifically for solar charging. They cater well to the cycle of charge and discharge for many years although they do release a gas upon charging, so should only be used outdoors.
Absorbed Glass Matt are recognized as the best available for solar power use. A woven glass mat is contained between the plates to hold the electrolyte. They don’t produce gas on charging, are leak and spill proof and have superior performance. They possess all the best qualities of gel batteries whilst being of higher quality, maintain a better voltage, last longer and self discharge slower.
