Solar Batteries and Deep Cycle Batteries

The Battery Shop Tasmania has a range of solar batteries and deep cycle batteries in stock to meet your energy needs. Whether you’re powering a mobile home or RV, managing an off-grid solar power system or lighting up a sailboat, we can fit the deep cycle battery that’s right for you.

Deep cycle batteries are used to power:

  • Caravans.
  • Sailboats.
  • Recreational vehicles (RVs).
  • Trolling motors for recreational fishing boats.
  • Forklifts.
  • Motorised wheelchairs.
  • Off-grid energy storage systems for solar and wind power.
  • Sump pumps.

What are deep cycle batteries?

Deep cycle batteries can be used in ways that would make other batteries go flat. In fact, they are designed to be discharged and recharged many times.

Cranking batteries (used in starter motors etc.) provide large bursts of power quickly. They can’t cope with being deeply discharged. For example, if you leave your car lights on and get a flat, the battery will never fully recover.

Deep cycle batteries, on the other hand, are designed to provide power at a steady rate over a long period of time. They are not damaged by deep discharge and are ideal for running things like lights, autopilots, fridges and fans.

Which types of Deep Cycle Batteries does Battery Shop Tasmania stock?

There are several types of deep cycle batteries on the market. We recommend absorbent glass mat batteries (AGM).

AGM are a type of deep cycle battery that is totally sealed and safe and easy to transport. These batteries:

  • Are safe to have inside an RV, boat, caravan or car.
  • Charge quickly and efficiently even at a low voltage e.g. from a car alternator.
  • Lose power very slowly when not in use, and can generally be recharged even after months on the shelf.
  • Can withstand very deep discharge.
  • Are sturdy and robust.

Brands in stock.

We stock Hard Core deep cycle batteries, which are ideal for use in RVs and caravans. Features include:

  • Can be used as starter battery.
