Platinum Batteries - NCC Approved 12v Batteries for Leisure
Formed in 2002, Platinum Batteries (Europe) Ltd based in Manchester implemented a focused strategy of growth within the independent aftermarket. Through “in-house” service, maximum availability and tight control over the companies spend.
Platinum Batteries work with Quality ‘Tier 1’ partners, which ensure that they provide the highest quality products to their customers. Through their eight strategically placed Platinum Customer Support Centres, they service the UK and Ireland via their own fleet of Platinum vehicles.
The company originally started in 1998 as Northern Batteries, National Batteries and UK Batteries this eventually evolved into Platinum Batteries with the acquisition of the “Platinum” Brand.
Platinum Batteries (Europe) Ltd have worked hard to reach a point where they are now the largest independent battery distributor within the UK.
Platinum Batteries are supplied into the Automotive, Commercial, Leisure, Marine, Canal Boat, Motorcycle and Golf Cart markets, with popular high quality brands such as Platinum, Oldham, Tungstone, Crompton, Progolf and Trojan.
Platinum is the UK’S No 1 Selling Brand and at Homestead Caravans we have three models in stock produced specifically for the Leisure Market. The Platinum Leisure Battery 85Ah 685L, Platinum Leisure Plus Battery 110Ah Low Box SB6110LB both models are sealed for life and maintenance free. These models are designed to cope with continuous cycling, whilst giving the highest performance and durable, reliable long life for your caravan and motorhome applications. These lead/acid batteries also feature a very useful state-of-charge indicator, an easy to read visual indicator to check the batteries charge and acid levels.
These two models are CLASS C under the National Caravan Council Product Registered and Verified Leisure Battery Scheme for users that require a lower capacity battery to cover basic operation of their habitation equipment for short periods away from an electrical hook-up. The SB6110LB is also suitable for use with caravan motor movers.
We also stock the latest Platinum AGM 110Ah Leisure Plus Battery AGMLB110L another Low Box battery designed to fit most caravan and motorhome on-board battery compartments.
The Platinum AGM 110Ah Leisure Plus Battery is a sealed for life and features a Heavy Duty Grid with Absorbed Glass Mat Seperators that holds electrolyte like a sponge to prevent acid spilling, giving faster recharge capabilities and provides up to 5 times more cycles than a standard leisure battery, meaning longer life. The unique construction ensures no electrolyte leakage from terminals of case, allowing the battery to be fitted in any position or orientation. An AGM Leisure Battery is also ideal should you be charging it from a Solar Panel system as it offers less internal resistance than the standard leisure batteries.
This battery is NCC Product Registered and Approved CLASS A for batteries with a higher storage capacity for people who frequently use their touring caravan or motorhome away from an electrical hook-up. This leisure battery is specially designed for high drain applications such as caravan motor movers.
It is not by accident that the Platinum range of batteries is the UK’s Top Selling Brand, with the combination of premium quality, easy availability, and great prices.
Platinum are only one of two battery brands at present who are involved in the NCC Product Registered and Verified Leisure Battery scheme which provides the caravan and motorhome user with a clearer and more informed idea of the model size of Leisure Battery that is best suited to their leisure needs. This can only help and reinforce Platinum’s top position in the Leisure Battery market.
