Powering Your Caravan or Mortorhome

Powering Your Caravan or Mortorhome

The BBL Experts will offer you the very best advice…

With the Great British Public being urged to holiday or ‘stay-cation’ in the U.K. and with Caravan and Camp sites due to reopen this weekend; there has been a noticeable increase in interest in Caravans and Motorhomes. Both of which provide flexible, mobile and self-contained accommodation, perfect for those who want to get away but with the reassurance of being able to be in full control of their surroundings.

There are many options for those who are looking to purchase a Caravan or Motorhome, including buying new, second hand or even, from a Motorhome perspective, a Van Conversion. However there is one key consideration, which ever option is chosen, and that is ensuring you are able to power any equipment you take on the road with you. If your preferred choice of destination is a Caravan Park / Site you will be more likely to hook up to the onsite electric when you arrive. However, if you prefer to camp away in the wild then this option is not available and you need a battery that will allow you to do this. Maybe you want to do a bit of both? Therefore choosing the best Leisure Battery to suit your requirements is crucial to the success of your trips away.

At BBL Batteries we offer a wide and diverse choice of Leisure Batteries to suit all applications. Those wanting to stay ‘off-grid’, therefore needing their battery to run equipment for a number of days at a time, should certainly consider BBL’s Lifos Lithium Iron range, currently available as a Member Offer on the Caravan and Motorhome Club website. These intelligent batteries connect directly to your mobile device, via Bluetooth enabling you to keep an eye on your battery’s state of charge and output / input. Also, being Lithium Iron there is a considerable weight saving, much more reserve power and a reduced cost per cycle. For those who want to stay mainly on Caravan Parks / Sites, BBL offer Lead Acid Leisure batteries as part of their range including the Yuasa Active Range, currently being featured on the Camping and Caravanning Club website, and their very own AVON Lead Acid Leisure Batteries which offer Premium Quality at Exceptional Value. Lead Acid Batteries can be sub divided again into EFB (Enhanced Flooded Batteries) and AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) both of which offer different characteristics and options to the user and can accommodate a combination of both off-grid trips as well as being hooked up at a Caravan Park.

BBL also offer multiple Solar solutions, including Solar Panels and the associated kit needed to ensure the effective harvesting and storage of Solar Power. The AVON Solar Fencer Assist Kit can be connected to any battery (over 35Ah for the 5w version & over 70Ah for the 10w version) directly, without needing any form of voltage regulation. The 20w panel is fitted with an in built charge controller which enables it to be connected to any size 12v Battery. The purpose of the system is to keep a 12v battery charged and is ideal for use with Motorhomes and Caravans.

All in all there are many different options to choose from. We highly recommend that you contact the Leisure Battery Experts at BBL Batteries who will offer the very best advice and ensure your choice of Leisure Power products is the one that will suit your needs best.

Visited the Bristol branch to buy an led light With no Idea on how to install it but the guys in the branch very helpful and gave us alternative And safer ways of installing It following their Instructions Was a lot easier than how we expected it to be Considering we had no way there what we were doing.

The guys at the Bristol branch were great and helpful I will definitely shop there again

Really very impressed with the care and attention that I received today.  I was recommended by Isca Motors, and I wasn’t disappointed.  From my initial telephone advice from Steve, It was clear how I would be supported.  When I attended for an inspection and quote, there was no hard sell or pressure.  The advice was clear, the options explained and the price to supply, and or supply and fit was clear.  I chose the supply and fit, partly because I was already there, but mainly because the product quality and price was more competitive than others I had found in my own research.  Thanks again to Steve and excellent ambassador for the company.

Nice little find, managed to locate an unusual sized battery for a wall thermometer and 1.5v AA batteries for an external smoke head, nice to have a service like this so locally, friendly staff as well. A +.....

I have previously used BBL and found the service, price and product knowledge second to none. This time I visited was no different. My old battery was tested. Was shown and explained the problem. Given good advice on a replacement.  I would highly recommend this company.

This helpful outlet recently sent my Kowalski Dive torch to their central depo in Bristol for battery replacement/repair which is quite an undertaking since they are soldered into the unit. Undeterred it was restored by them even during partial lockdown.
I’m thrilled and very grateful - well done guys

Excellent friendly service & very informative. Free test & fitment also, which included resetting my cars ECU. Would definitely recommend & would use again without fail

100% satisfy with the service and price. I sent an email inquiring about an i-stop car battery which i was finding very difficult to get from other suppliers and even the dealer could not help much. The very next day i received a very professional and friendly email from BBL Swindon to collect one. Very polite and helpful. They do more than just batteries , Check their website.I would definitely recommend to anyone,

Just had battery check and a new Battery fitted, What a great guy sorted my Car out, When I got there he was just on a break, It was a bit busy but he said to give him a few minutes and he would sort it out, Boy was he good, Battery checked, Old battery out /new one in, Recoded, Paid for all within 15 /20 mins. 
Saved over £125 from my Hyundai garage quote & two more years warranty and done there and then.
All done with a smile ..
What more can you ask for?

Exceptional customer service from a very knowledgeable staff member. We were directed to the trading estate to find a Europarts by Green Flag as our previous battery had given up the ghost whilst on holiday. In searching for their unit we came across BBL and instantly ‘felt’ and that we would be looked after better. Not only was the customer service first class but the battery was significantly less than a lesser quality battery at Europarts. We will definately advise friends and family that holiday in the South West to use your company for their battery needs. Thank you..
