Narrowboat Batteries

When it comes to choosing leisure batteries for your narrowboat, you need to check the existing batteries size and amperage rating. If your living on the boat you will be reliant on the batteries, so its very important to choose the right ones to power your everyday accessories. The bigger the battery, the bigger the ampere hour rating. 

Narrowboats tend to use unsealed batteries as most designs have the batteries located near the engine bay. Excessive heat will cause evaporation and therefore unsealed batteries, even though most units are maintenance free, they can still be replenished with fluid to prolong their life. Most leisure batteries are sealed units these days and are perfectly fine to use.

The most common leisure / deepcycle batteries used are listed below and they range from 110ah - 230ah. We also supply engine starter batteries, again, starter batteries do vary in size and amperage.
