What should I do about my battery in the caravan in winter?
All batteries self-discharge, and leisure battery has about. 5-6 % self-discharge per. month at 20 ° C. If your battery is going for a long time will happen recharging. The battery self-discharge is less the more cold it is exposed to. eg. The self-discharge is halved for every 10 ° C temperature drops (at 20 ° C 5-6 % ved 10 ° C as. 2,5- 3 %), the battery should be stored in a cold place to avoid too much self-discharge, unless you have the option of charging.
Gel and AGM batteries self-discharge is lower, and you can expect a fully charged (100%) battery, can be stored without use for about. 6 months at 10 ° C without the problematic, depending on the battery type. However, it is best battery will have a recharge (100%) after about. 3-4 months.
If a battery is 100 % charged freezes the first at approximately. -70 °C, battery 50 % Charging can only freeze at approximately. – 25 °C, batteries without power can freeze at – 7 °C. Do you allow your battery has 50 % charge it can cope with the harsh weather in Denmark.
