For 4WDers, electric winches can drain significant amps from the vehicle battery quicker than an alternator can replace them, so a dual-battery system can be set up so you can run the winch off both batteries. You should consider what 12V electrical items you expect to run from the dual-battery system and then calculate how much power source (watt hours) you will require to run all the items and how long you want to run the items between recharges. It is recommended you then factor in about a 25-30% safety margin. This calculation will assist in deciding the amount of amp hour battery you need.
A dual-battery system consists of the two batteries with one termed as the ‘primary battery’ and the other the ‘auxiliary battery’, battery cradles, wiring for the discharging/charging system which integrates the vehicle’s electrical system and a battery isolator. An optional visual read-out device can also be placed in the cab of the vehicle for you to check on the battery charging or battery power storage level. We have years of experience you can benefit from without extensive knowledge in these types of systems, we supply and install for you.
If you wish to run 240V appliances such as a 240V TV or a laptop computer in your vehicle from a 12V system you will need to install an inverter. An inverter is an electrical device that converts 12V Direct Current (DC) from the batteries to 240V Alternating Current (AC). Inverters also draw their power from a 12V deep cycle battery or battery bank (several batteries wired in parallel). Let us help you supply, fit and install what you need.
