Arguably the use of an AGM battery is the best choice for an
installation in the Caravan, camping and off-road industry. It is, of
course, personal preference of what type of battery an individual
decides to fit to their caravan, motor home or camper trailer; however
it is in the opinion of “Home of 12 Volt” that the technology offered by
an AGM battery is the best suited in the circumstances encountered in
AGM stand for “absorbed glass matt”. A basic explanation of an AGM cell
is this: The cell is divided into 6 separate 2 volt cells, linked
together to produce a 12 volt battery. Each 2 volt cell is divided using
heavy duty ABS plastic. Within each 2 volt cell there are lead plates
which are again separated using “glass matt” sponges; these glass matt
sponges absorb the sulphuric acid (hence the name absorbed glass matt).
Essentially this means that the battery is a “bonded design”,
strengthening the battery for use on corrugated roads or rough terrain.
All batteries release gasses when under charge, however; AGM
batteries are VRLA (Valve-regulated lead-acid battery), this means that
instead of releasing gasses into the air when charging, the battery will
instead open “valves” between each cell and transfer gasses to the next
cell). This essentially means that under normal charging conditions
(with an approved and suitable charger) the battery will not release
dangerous gases into the air.
In summary, the AGM battery is leak proof, maintenance free, heat
resistant, vibration resistant and can be used on any side (even upside
down)! An AGM cell will charge extremely fast and is designed to be
constantly and continually discharged and recharged.
AGM Batteries have an excellent standby use for long term storage, making them the perfect choice for the off-road industry.REDBACK EXTREME AGM
If you are in the market for an Extreme deep cycle then look no further then the Redback Extreme AGM!
This heavy duty AGM battery is the perfect option for the use in
Caravans, Motor homes, Camper trailers or even as a second under bonnet
Redback Extreme takes the technology of an AGM battery to a whole new
level! Built with heavier internal lead plates, this battery is designed
for continual discharge for heavy draw appliances. Its bonded element
design allows for strength against corrugated or rough terrain, making
it vibration resistant and the perfect choice for an off – road battery!
Whilst the Redback Extreme is not designed as a primary cranking
battery (like the Thumper Redback hybrid), it does still hold the
capacity to start up to a 10Lt diesel engine. The Extreme is designed as
a secondary battery rather than a primary starting battery. The perfect
combination for an under bonnet dual battery system would encompass the
Thumper Redback (either 100 Ah or 120 Ah) as the starter battery and
the Redback Extreme (either 100 Ah or 120 Ah) as the secondary battery. Due to design of the heavier internal plates within the Extreme battery, it allows for rapid discharge and recharge of heavy draw appliances to be continually used.
Due to the internal characteristics of the battery, the Redback
Extreme will allow for longer life over that of a standard AGM

The Blue Apple LCD Digital Volt meter is the perfect way to monitor your battery's charge condition.
This meter will provide an accurate digital reading of the battery's voltage level,
taking the guess work out of knowing when your system requires a recharge.
This meter provides an accurate voltage reading measured to two decimal places; designed to be left on continuously if so desired, the meter has an extremely low power draw of just 9mA from the battery per hour, which is an approx draw of less than .5 amp for a full week's use!
12.7 Volts = 100 % Battery capacity remaining
12.5 Volts = 80 % Battery capacity remaining
12.2 Volts = 50 % Battery capacity remaining
11.3 Volts = 30 % Battery capacity remaining
10.5 Volts = FLAT - Battery requires immediate recharge
