Get the right battery and advanced system for the task.

Exide Batteries provide enhanced performance, product life and value for SUV’s and Four Wheel Drives, that’s why we recommend them. Modern large and off-road vehicles demand a significant increase in electrical supply compared to previous models.

This new range delivers a balanced advancement in technologies and reliability providing genuine suitability for Australia’s harsh conditions when it comes to starting large SUVs and dual purpose use for tough 4WD’s.

A dual-battery system consists of two batteries termed as the ‘primary battery’ and ‘auxiliary battery’. The two batteries are wired together to the discharging/charging system which integrates the vehicle’s electrical system and a battery isolator. An optional read out device can be placed in the cab during installation which gives you the ability to check your battery levels.

Dual Battery Systems

Vehicle batteries are charged by the vehicle’s alternator while the engine is running so when the engine is shut down the charging of the battery ceases. Running portable 12V appliances will draw power and reduce the power supply stored in the battery. This often results in flattening the starting battery which can then leave you stranded. Installation of a dual-battery system will help you overcome this.

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.
