- Milenco Optimate 10 - Multi Step Smart Charger/ Maintainer
The biggest problem with Caravan/ Motorhome leisure batteries is leaving them standing in the vehicle for long periods while you caravan or Motorhome is not being used. This will result in them going flat/losing all charge. Once they have lost charge for a period of time they become damaged through a process called Sulfation. This damage reduces the charge the battery can then take or even stop it taking any charge. Milenco Optimate 10 chargers are fully automatic charges that incorporate a Desulfating Deep Pulse programme. This can help reduce the damage caused and help maximise the batteries charge.
Even in normal use with the Caravan/Motorhome charging the battery when you are plugged in to the mains on site or at home, you can still benefit from using a good quality Automatic charger like the Milenco Optimate chargers. The chargers fitted as standard by Caravan/Motorhome manufacturers tend to be just basic trickle chargers and do not monitor or optimise the Battery Charge to keep the battery in top condition.
WARNING:- A battery left deep-discharged for an extended period may develop permanent damage in one or more cells. Such batteries may heat up excessively during high current charging. Always Monitor the battery temperature during the first hour, then hourly there-after. Check for unusual signs, such as bubbling or leaking electrolyte, heightened activity in one cell compared to others, or hissing sounds. If at any time the battery is uncomfortably hot to touch or you notice any unusual signs, DISCONNECT THE CHARGER IMMEDIATELY AND EITHER GET THE BATTERY PROFESSIONALLY CHECKED OR REPLACE.
What the manufacturer says:-
When a vehicle battery is left uncharged a process called battery sulfation occurs.
This is when sulphate builds up on the lead plates within the battery, this process starts almost immediately, and if left even over a relatively short period of time this sulphate will not only reduce battery performance, but dramatically shorten the life of the battery.
The only solution to remove sulphate from the lead plates and restore battery performance is to use a Desulfating Deep Pulse Charger/Maintainer.
The Milenco Optimates are the world’s most efficient and advanced Desulfating Charger/Maintainers available.
This is the ideal product to protect, charge and maintain your recreational vehicle battery for those periods when the vehicle is not in use.
