As spring arrives, outdoor enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the chance to take their boats, motorcycles, RVs, and other recreational vehicles out of winter storage. However, the excitement can be dampened by the discovery of dead batteries due to improper care and maintenance.
In a press release, to address this issue, Batteries Plus, a leading battery retailer, is launching the X2Power lithium marine and RV battery, designed to offer enhanced performance and longevity for seasonal use.
Batteries Plus is dedicated to meeting its customers’ needs with top battery solutions, including the X2Power lithium battery. This fast-charging battery features a low self-discharge rate and a higher capacity, allowing for extended runtimes.
Its lightweight design, over 50% lighter than lead-acid batteries, makes it easy to transport and store while reducing the overall weight of boats or RVs. The battery also includes Bluetooth technology, accessible through a proprietary app, and a 10-year limited warranty.
The X2Power battery is ideal for powering trolling motors, fish finders, and other electronics on kayaks or boats. Shawn Budiac, Vice President of Category Management at Batteries Plus, emphasized the company’s commitment to offering quality products.
“Batteries Plus is the one-stop shop for all battery-related needs, including replacement, maintenance, and storage advice. We are passionate about providing our customers with the best options on the market, such as X2Power, to power their passions this spring,” said Budiac.
Proper battery care and maintenance for recreational vehicles is essential for a seamless spring season.
Batteries Plus offers several tips to keep outdoor toys ready for use, such as choosing lithium marine batteries, like the X2Power lithium marine battery, which are lighter, more efficient, and can last significantly longer than traditional lead-acid deep cycle batteries.
They also said to maintain a full charge on the battery between rides to ensure it can power the engine and continue to hold a full charge over time. Also, investing in a high-quality battery charger that won’t overcharge or overheat the battery while maintaining a steady charge without constant supervision.
Additionally, They provided practices to avoid like not allowing corrosion, dirt, or moisture to build up on the terminals, as these can drain power, as well as cleaning the terminals with a baking soda and water solution, rinsing with fresh water, and apply a light coat of waterproof grease to protect them.
They also said to steer clear of entry-level “wet” batteries. While AGM and lithium batteries may require a larger initial investment, they demand less maintenance. They are better suited for harsh conditions due to their superior resistance to shock and vibration.
By following these guidelines and incorporating the X2Power lithium battery, campers, RVers, and other outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy a hassle-free spring season and make the most of their recreational vehicles.
