Do you know how much current your Minn Kota draws?

Here at Absolute Batteries Toowoomba we decided we would do a video of a test out on the water and show what was drawn on an electric outboard motor on the average day at Cooby dam. As you can see, at full thrust you would have approximately 2 hours run time at best on a brand new 120 Ah deep cycle. Running the electric motor at a lower speed will increase your time on the water however.

The motor that we used is a Minn Kota Endura with 44 pounds thrust driving a flat bottom 13 ft tinny with three men and associated gear totaling approximately 350-400 kg’s. The conditions were also pretty windy as well!

 

Summer really isn’t the time you want a dead battery!

If you are going away or staying close to home this summer, the last thing you want is to be stuck somewhere in the baking heat after your battery has died. Be it out on holiday or at the local shops a dead battery can be a very uncomfortable inconvenience which can be simple to avoid. Bring your car or battery into us at Absolute Batteries Toowoomba and let us check it out before you go away or if the car has been hesitant to start. We have a number of tests we can run on your battery to see what state it is in before you leave on your holiday or just so it doesn’t hold you up before work.

Hot summer days are great when you can go places and cool off, but if you get stuck in your car because of a dead battery things can turn your summer sour very quickly. Don’t wait, just drop in to Absolute Batteries Toowoomba and let us check it out!

Absorbed Glass Mat deep cycle batteries.

If you’re heading out on the water or going camping or even just getting away from it all, you need a good battery you can rely on.

Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries are a completely sealed, nonspillable battery that can be used in a variety of applications. Deep Cycle batteries like the Fullriver ones pictured are ideal for when you cannot run the risk of an acid spill or have them in a location where the gasses produced by a wet battery will be dangerous. With incredibly solid construction, they are very resistant to vibration and shock and with proper care they can have a very long service life and come in a variety of sizes to suit your needs.

Don’t forget our special on the Power AGM 130Ah deep cycles either! 130Ah 12v AGM for $350 including GST.

Fold out Solar panels.

Thinking about going away this holiday season? Take a fold out solar panel with you to keep your fridge going!

Simple and effective, fold out solar panels have become the solution for camping or day trips throughout Australia. With travel fridges becoming very common in people’s travel plans, the ability to keep them running has become essential.  With the ability to keep a 50-60 liter fridge going, an 80 watt panel has become a cheap, easily transportable, and rugged solution to power generation.

These fold out panels are simple to use and operate and literally come ready to go out of the bag. Fold them out, face them north and clip it onto your deep cycle battery and it starts to work. They are best used from approximately  9am till about 3pm in the afternoon for maximum power generation. While they do come in a variety of sizes, the most popular ones are the 80 watt and 120 watt styles to suit your needs and Absolute Batteries Toowoomba stocks them in the reliable Projecta brand.
