Some revisions to the 2016 ranges and carriage-paid prices as shown below plus 'Xtreme' range added.
LEOCH,POWER THE GALAXY
An ambitious claim - but they do supply power backup, ups & power supplies, electric vehicles, traction, start-stop automotive, motorcycle, deep cycle leisure & dual purpose batteries, marine applications, etc!
As seen on TV! Countryfile filmed a geologist at work looking at underground shafts and voids after the floods and he was using an 'Energy' battery as his source of reliable mobile power for sensitive instruments.
We're pleased to offer three battery ranges in our new Leoch Leisure Battery line-up. All have been chosen to offer excellent value for money within the three different application groups and all have thicker and/or premium plates for reliability and performance. Welcome features like visual charge indicators, minimal self discharge for seasonal leisure use, excellent sealing, great low temperature and starting performance plus calcium technology all make for a great product for both leisure and for starting for motorhomes or marine.
1. SFL Adventurer is a sealed 'wet/flooded' range with a 3 year warranty. Calcium lead alloy technology maintenance-free design for use where discharge isn't routinely deep. Great pricing too.
2. SMF Adventurer Energy is a Sealed Lead Acid 'fit and forget' range for use where the sealed-maintenance-free and non-spill spill-resistant characteristic is important. Similar to the FLA and with 2 year warranty but uplifted with improved Calcium-Lead plate technology. Not much dearer.
3. AGM Adventurer range is designed for deeper discharging leisure use - as is typical in off-grid motorhomes - but also beneficial in all motorhomes not least due to the more difficult winter/storage conditions. Great for use with caravan motor-movers too. Best quality construction plus the Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) technology means 4x-5x the life cycles of a standard battery when deeper cycling is involved (deeper is typically >50% DOD). These units are totally sealed and can even be used on their sides, very suitable for internal location. The best and naturally one of the dearer items in this battery range but with lowest-total-cost-of-ownership. 3 year warranty. Our own favourite.
4. LPX XTREME series are robust AGMs designed to give exceptional cold cranking ability in each amp-hour rating plus a very slow self-discharge & high resistance to deep discharge, so ideal for motorhomes, motor moving, and for back-up use in the smaller sizes. Please note the terminals vary within the range please see this Xtreme pdf flyer for guidance (click).
Our supplier says of this range: • oxygen recombination technology maintenance free • PbCaSn alloy for plate grids, less gassing, less self-discharging • High quality AGM separator, extended cycle life and prevents micro short circuit • ABS material increases the strength of battery container • High purity raw material which ensures low self discharge rate • Silver coated copper terminals, brass insert terminal and lead terminals improve the electric conductivity • Primary lead technology for optimum performance • AGM Absorbed Glass Matt - For demanding environments • Deep cycles - 4 x longer life than normal batteries • Totally sealed for life - Unspillable & safe, totally MF • Minimal self discharge - Ideal for seasonal use and as backup • Increased starting power - Even at low temperatures • Great looks, great performance".
The product code like 'XR1500' refers to the Pulse Hot Cranking Amps PHCA, this is different to the Cold Cranking Amps CCA often quoted for automotive use and where known we quote CCA in the descriptions.

New AHr Ratings C20: A note about published battery capacities. Standards for testing battery capacity were revised recently and we are all encouraged to quote C20 values rather than the C100 values previously preferred by the manufacturers. At the moment some of the Ahrs we quote above are the 100hr ratings as are the battery code numbers but we will add 20hour figures as we get them to give you the C20/100 rating - as already on our AGMs
Venting - A word of caution: Because leisure batteries situated in the living areas of motorhomes are in an enclosed space, and because under some circumstances escaping charge gasses can explode, all camper batteries should be totally sealed or be vented to the outside or have special flame arresting vents. This is one of the reasons that GEL are favoured by manufacturers because most are properly and totally sealed as are our AGMs, you can even use them on their sides.
Unfortunately the term 'sealed' doesn't always mean what we think it means; persistent enquiries about several budget 'sealed' batteries on the internet produced responses along the lines of "Thank you for your enquiry. It is sealed only in the sense that the battery cannot be topped up ... this battery must be fitted in a vented space". This is also true of our budget SFL range. Anyway do beware, not everyone really knows what their 'sealed' means but we do!
How long will it last? As with all vehicle batteries the life is really the number of discharge cycles rather than years. Also a slight discharge followed by top-up only counts as a fraction of a full cycle whereas a deep discharge to near-flat counts as an aggressively full cycle and shortens battery life as per the charts. This is why a starter battery and a lightly used leisure battery lasts for maybe twice its warranty, maybe even more whereas a heavily used and/or under-specified leisure battery fails at roughly its warranty life. If you want best life buy well, have ample capacity, and don't run it/them down too far. Using low power gadgets like LED lights help too, big discharges via large inverters really don't help unless you have multiple batteries. But - our batteries are for starting as well as leisure so better than many in this respect!
