Learn More About Auxiliary Battery Systems

An auxiliary battery is recommended especially for missions that involve the operation of electronics for prolonged periods without the engine running. An auxiliary battery is recommended for missions that require electronics to be operated for extended periods of time with the engine off, such as emergency management, bait cars or drop cars. 

No matter what mission it is, the vehicle's starting battery should always be fully charged. The auxiliary battery can also be used to provide emergency power in the event that the starting battery fails.

These are the basics to consider when installing auxiliary batteries:-

1 – Battery isolator: This is perhaps the most critical item for an auxiliary battery system. The isolator allows auxiliary batteries to receive charge from the vehicle's electrical system, but it also isolates the battery and prevents backflow of current and depletion. Operators can also use advanced battery isolators to bypass isolation and assist with emergency jump-starting.

2 – Battery – An SLA (sealed lithium acid) battery is a great choice to meet a variety of mission requirements. SLA batteries can be installed in any orientation and can withstand extreme temperatures. They also resist vibration. There are many options for battery sizes, but it all depends on the use. As with wiring, choose the largest possible size or the most space that your vehicle can accommodate. 

3 – Wiring. – Just like fuses, the wiring size will depend on the potential future load and the total load. Like fuses, wiring that is too small can cause it to burn and pose a safety hazard. The larger the wire size (AWG, or gauge) the better.
