Thumper Battery Pack 48 AH

The Thumper range is designed to take the place of, or even work alongside a dual battery system in the vehicle. The units are supplied with a charging system for the vehicle or boat, which when installed correctly, will allow for a recharge time of 2 – 4 hours.

Each Thumper unit consists of multiple 12 Volt AGM cells (Absorbed Glass Matt) linked together in parallel. The cells are maintenance free and will not leak or gas when charging; perfect for use inside the vehicle or enclosed areas.

You will have absolute peace of mind when jump starting with your Thumper as the entire range is ‘spike protected’. This means that no damage will occur to any in built computer systems.

The Thumper 48 AH is ‘big brother’ unit for the Thumper 30 AH. With an additional 18AH, this unit will allow people who are running a 40 – 50 Lt Compressor type fridge the luxury of staying an additional night somewhere (resulting in fridge running time being approx 2 – 2 ½ days independent from power!)

The Thumper 48 AH comes equipped with x 2 cigarette type outlets, one Hella/Merrit type outlet, a 15 Amp Circuit breaker, a 2 pin socket for charging and a 175 Amp Anderson for jump starting.

The Thumper 48, along with all the remaining Thumper range, is completely spike protected so no longer will you have to worry about any nasty voltage spikes occurring between battery voltages.

The 48 AH will successfully jump starting vehicles up to and including 6Lt diesel engines!

The Thumper 48 AH comes included with a set of heavy-duty jump leads and the vehicle in car charging kit.

Once connected to the vehicle charge system the 48AH will recharge within 2 – 3 hours of drive time. The unit is also compatible for 240 Volt charging and solar charging (When charging via 240Volt do not use in excess of a 16Amp charger)

Weight – 15 kg       Length – 240 mm

Height – 270 mm     Width – 200 mm

2 Year Warranty

There are many variables that need to be considered when trying to calculate the run times of fridges from a battery source. Factors such as fridge size, fridge temperature, ambient temperature, how empty/full your fridge is and how often you are in and out of the fridge all need to be taken into consideration when calculating approximate run times from a battery.

We at Home of 12 Volt allow for an approximate run time based on the above variables, however much better run times can be achieved.

Thumper 48 AH Battery Pack
- 40LT Fridge approx run time of 35 - 48 HOURS
- 60LT Fridge approx run time of 30 - 48 HOURS

The above run times do not involve any recharge and are based on a continuous run time using the 12 Volt 40Lt / 60Lt compressor type fridge.

Basic Questions and Answers

What is Thumper?  

The Thumper range is designed to take the place of, or even work alongside a dual battery system in the vehicle, boat etc. They are the perfect option for those who either have no space for a traditional dual battery system or would like to have the freedom of a portable dual battery system that can be easily separated from the vehicle with a massive spike protected jump-starting capability. Most commonly used for powering 12 volt refrigerators & lighting although the applications stretch only as far as your imagination.

Jump Starting

Is jump-starting my vehicle safe? 

Yes! Jump starting with the Thumper range is perfectly safe for both the unit and your vehicle. The Thumper range is completely spike protected which means that you will not incur any of those nasty voltage spikes which could potentially fry a vehicle's internal circuits and cause you thousands of dollars in vehicle repairs.

Will the Thumper start my diesel?  

Yes! Each of the Thumper units hold a differing CA output, which means that the cranking ability varies between the sizes of each unit. Refer to specifications section for the cranking abilities of each Thumper model.


What Type of Batteries are used in the Thumper Range?  

Each Thumper unit consists of multiple 12 Volt AGM cells (Absorbed Glass Matt) linked together in parallel for the super fast recharge time. The battery's are 100% maintenance free and will not leak or gas when charging; perfect for use inside the vehicle or enclosed areas. The AGM batteries allow for not only deep cycling but they additionally allow for the massive cranking ability. The cells like to charge at a voltage rate between 13 - 14 Volts, which means that they are fully capable of charging via the supplied vehicle charging kit.

Your Thumper unit is completely recharged before delivery.

The condition of the cells can be checked by pressing the push button on the front of the unit to illuminate the blue LCD display gauge. Cross-reference the gauge against the voltage readings on the sticker above to determine the remaining voltage available. The gauge has an extremely low power draw and can be left on if require to monitor the Thumper’s condition. If left illuminated the gauge will draw approx 1 Amp over a 14 day period.

Will they leak or spill? 

No. The AGM batteries completely sealed battery's, meaning that you will not have to worry about the cells leaking acid, fuses, gases or any nasty odors. Due to the fact the batteries are completely sealed, it allows for the batteries to be stored on any one of their sides even upside-down while working to full efficiency!

Can I store the unit in a non-ventilated area, such as under a bed? 

Yes. Considering that the batteries are completely sealed it means that the batteries do not require a ventilated area for storage. This results in the perfect battery to have stored in an out of the way area such as under a bed in a caravan or under a vehicle's seat, even in a draw in the back of 4WD!

Do the batteries hold a memory?

Unlike many batteries on the market, the Thumper does not hold a ‘memory’, which means that at any stage, regardless of the state of charge the Thumper may be recharged or discharged, without affecting the life of the unit which is approximately 5-7 years after which the units can be re-packed and given a brand new 2 year warranty.

Charging Methods

In Vehicle Charging

All units are supplied with a Complete Charging System for the vehicle or boat, which when installed correctly, will allow for a recharge time of 2 – 4 hours and never let your vehicles starting battery go flat as it automatically separates the Thumper from the starting battery when the motor is not running.

Your Thumper will be supplied with a 20 Amp In Vehicle Charging System.  The charging kit is designed to be hard mounted into the vehicle and when installed correctly; this kit will provide a charge rate of up to 20 Amps depending on the unit’s requirements and the vehicle’s alternator.

Your Thumper can be continuously connected to the vehicle charging kit without risk whilst simultaneously providing power for on-board accessories (for example – car fridge) if desired.

(We do not recommend charging the unit straight from a vehicle's cigarette socket, as the unit will never reach full charge)

Can I charge my unit and discharge it at the same time?

YES! This is the perfect way to use your Thumper. All connections on the Thumper may be used for recharging or discharging.

Charging from a 240v Source? 

Your Thumper can be charged from 240 Volt; however, the charger MUST be regulated or automatic to ensure that the cells are not damaged if accidentally left for extended periods.

Simply connect the alligator clamps of your regulated or automatic charger to the Thumper via the 175A Anderson connector (Positive to the positive terminal, negative to the negative terminal). 

For an accurate reading of your Thumper’s state of charge, wait for 30 minutes after disconnecting from the charger as this will allow time for any “surface charge” to fade.

Can I recharge my unit straight from my generator?

YES! We recommend putting a regulated battery charger between the generator and your unit for a faster recharge and to protect you batteries from the spikes that can occur with Generators charge outputs

Can I use Solar Panels to charge my unit?  

Yes. Solar panels can be used for charging and/or maintaining the Thumper battery packs. Keep in mind that solar panels that are rated at 10 watts or higher must be regulated when connected to any type of battery. This will prevent the solar panel from over-charging the battery and potentially causing damage.  See our wide range of panels available from this store!

Will it run my fridge?

Yes. It will and many other appliances also! One of the main accessories in which people use with the Thumpers are 12/240Volt compressor type fridges. As the batteries are deep cycle it allows for the running of accessories even while the battery is charging through vehicle charging, Solar or even 240 Volt!

We do not recommend running gas fridges for prolonged durations due to the high power draw (approx 12 + Amps per hour).

Can I use inverters for 240 Volt appliances?  

Yes. The Getaway range includes an inbuilt inverter. These units will allow for the running of appliances such a laptop computers, recharging phone and camera batteries to even running TV's, DVD players or even powering tools such as drills and 4 inch angle grinders! 

How long will the battery last while running my appliances?

The duration of time that the Thumper will last with running accessories such as a fridge largely depends on the amp draw of the appliance in question. For example: a fridge with an average draw of 1 amp per hour would run for 30 hours with a 30 amp hour unit..

What is an Amp Hour?

Amp hour is the rated capacity of the unit. If a unit holds 60 AH and you discharged the unit using a fluorescent light that draws 1 Amp per hour the unit would last for a duration of 60 hours before needing recharging.

What size Thumper do I need?

To work out the size you need simply multiply the average amp per hour draw of your fridge by the amount of hours you want your fridge to run for. Take into account that if you are driving a little every day your unit will be recharging i.e 1 hour of driving you will have put 25% charge back into your battery.  Feel free to call us on for help choosing the correct battery size on the number at the top of your screen.

What is the life expectancy of the batteries used?

The AGM cells used in the Thumper range have a life expectancy between 5 - 9 years. The life of the Thumper range largely depends on the method in which the unit is charged. Over 10 years on the market has proved that the life expectancy of the units increase when the units are charged via the provided In car charging kit. When the unit is not in use (discharged regularly), the best method of maintaining the battery is leaving the unit connected to its In Car kit. This maintains the battery and aids in prolonging the life of the cells used in the battery pack.

What is the warranty of the Thumper? 

The Thumper offers a 2-year warranty from the date of your purchase.

What do I do when my cells in my unit die? 

Although the Thumper range offers a 2 year warranty and has a life expectancy between 5 - 9 years. We offer our customers the chance to have their unit repacked when the cells do eventually die out! Once a customer has paid for a repack we offer our customers a new 2-year manufacturer warranty on the unit from the date of repack.

Where and how are the Thumper units made?

The Thumper range is proudly South Australian made and owned. Each unit is hand made from start to finish to produce the best portable dual battery system with the highest cranking ability available on market!
