12 Dos and Don’ts When Caring for Your Car Battery

All cars — even the most powerful, expensive, and technologically advanced, are completely helpless when their car batteries are dead. This should make you think twice about taking yours for granted.

Even your battery needs TLC every now and then. Here are some of the things you should and shouldn’t do when caring for your car’s battery:

Dos

Mechanic repairing a car

1. Do familiarize your senses on your car’s engine so you can easily spot signs of impending battery death.

Training yourself to notice how your car works normally allows you to easily recognize signs of problems For instance:

  • How bright is your car’s headlights when functioning properly?
  • What does your car smell like? Are there strange smells coming from your car that you’re not familiar with?

When you get used to how your car and its engine function normally, your senses will be more attuned if things are out of place. A murky headlight means that the car’s battery might be going down, while a surphuric smell can indicate leaking batteries — or catalytic converter problems.

Whatever the case, knowing that something is wrong with your car allows you to take steps to solve the problems earlier that waiting for things to get worse.

2. Do inspect the terminal clamps to see if they are tight and free from corrosion.

Corrosion is the bane of all car parts — including batteries. You can clean them by mixing one or two tablespoons of baking soda and water, then brushing the corroded part with a wire brush. By the way, before you do this, make sure to turn off the engine first and disconnect the cables. Once you do this, you can brush both the negative and positive posts on the battery with a wire brush.

If there’s a lot of corrosion, it would be best to have them cleaned by professionals, instead.

3. Do disconnect the battery if you plan to keep your car in storage for a long time.

It’s normal for batteries to self-discharge slowly even if you’re not using your car. You can prevent unnecessary battery drain by simply disconnecting them — especially if you don’t plan to use your vehicle for a long time.

4. Do keep jumper cables inside your emergency kit / tools.

You should always have jumper cables in your car, because there’s always a possibility that your batteries can die out on you in an instant. If this happens on you, then you can always ask a friend or any random driver that passes by to help you jump-start your car. This can at least make you mobile enough to go to a nearest car mechanic or station to have your car inspected for problems.

5. Do protect your battery by using a special grease or spray designed for them.

These sprays are specially designed for car batteries so they don’t get rusty and corroded.

Don’tsMechanic checking a car's vitals

1. Don’t make it a habit to completely discharge your battery.

Your car’s battery often works by harnessing the power generated by its lead cells. Discharging your battery can damage them fast.

2. Don’t let your car sit in hot places.

Heat is another enemy of car batteries. Hot temperatures actually cause the battery fluid to evaporate, which shortens its life in the process.

3. Don’t idle your car.

It’s easy to wait for someone even in your car. Just turn on your aircon, listen to the radio — and even charge your phone while you’re at it. This practice is not only gas-guzzling, but it can also be hard on your battery. It’s much better to turn the engine on from time to time so your car’s battery doesn’t do all the work when your car’s idle..

4. Don’t leave the lights on.

It’s one of the most common mistakes that people make — leaving their headlights or cabin lights on after they go home. This can drain your battery overnight, so do double checks before you get out of your car at night.

5. Don’t use your car’s alternator to charge a dead battery.

Your alternator is not designed to act as your battery’s charger, and doing so will damage or shorten your battery’s life.

6. Don’t disconnect the positive cable first when removing your car’s battery.

Always start with the negative cable first; otherwise, you might cause your battery to short-circuit.

7. Don’t use a high-charge setting when you’re charging your battery yourself.

Many chargers have a low-charge setting, and you should use this first as a safety precaution. If you don’t have this setting, then it’s better (and much safer) to let a professional do it for you.

Dash Camera Buying Guide

Purchasing Dash Cam

Consider the following when shopping for a dashboard camera:

  • Some dash cameras come with a built-in LCD viewing screen. While this can be useful, it is also likely to increase the size of the unit.
  • Consider how you intend to access recorded footage. Almost all cameras can be connected to a computer but know that some enable you to watch footage through a mobile app.
  • For round the clock recording, be sure to opt for a dashboard camera with night time recording features. If you plan to leave your dash cam in position all the time, consider a model with some level of heat resistance.
Types of Dash Cameras
Single Lens Dash Cameras

Single lens cameras record footage through the windshield of your car. They are easy-to-install, uncomplicated to operate and are often the most affordable option.

  • Most single lens dash cameras are powered through the cigarette lighter on your car so you can set it up with ease. Note, installation may require some cable management to keep your view unobstructed.
  • Some GPS navigators come with a built-in, single lens dash cam. These are a great space-saving option for anyone who needs to have both devices in operation at the same time.
  • The downside of forward-facing dash cams is that they can miss incidents that occur to the sides or rear of your vehicle. It is worth noting that rear-ending remains one of the most common accidents in Australia.
Multiple Lens Dash Cams

Multiple Lens dashboard cameras allow you to record footage of what’s in front, behind and in some cases to the side of your vehicle so you’ll always be covered if you need to make a claim.

  • Front and rear dash cams come as one or two units. Single unit models are easy-to-install. Two unit cameras may give you a better recording angle but they can be more complicated to power.
  • These power restrictions may mean that the dash cams need to be hard wired into the electrics of your car. This should only be undertaken by a trained professional so factor this cost into your budget.
  • Single unit models can be of particular use to anyone who needs to record events within the car. Taxi drivers and couriers, for example, may benefit from such functionality.
Hybrid GPS & Dash Cameras

Combine all your in-car device into one with a Hybrid Dash Camera. This type of dash cam also includes GPS functionality for extra convenience.

  • Don’t have enough space to put both a dash cam and a GPS in your car? A hybrid solves your problems and saves you space.
  • As with single lens dash cams, hybrids rarely allow you to record what’s happening at both the front and back of your car.
  • Consider cost when opting for a hybrid dash camera as many are more expensive than either a single lens or standalone GPS navigator.
Dash Camera Features
Storage

Dash cams use loop recording, which means old footage is constantly being replaced with new footage. Be aware of the following if you are keen to use your dash cam to document journeys as well as record incidents:

  • Practically all dash cams record footage on to an SD card. Some models are sold with an SD card included. If not, you will need to make a separate purchase to start using the camera.
  • The amount of footage that can be recorded comes down to the size SD card. Modern SD cards offer as much as 64GB of space. However, if you need to buy a card for your camera, check capacity compatibility before making a purchase.
  • It is also important to purchase an SD card that can cope with the resolution of the camera (higher resolutions require faster speeds). As such, it is advisable to shop for a class 6 SD card or above.
Resolution & Frame Rate

Resolution and frame rates are an essential consideration when shopping for a dash cam as they can dictate whether or not recorded footage is good enough to be used as evidence.

  • In the broadest terms, the higher the resolution and frame rate, the better. Be aware, however, that resolution above 1080p and frame rates above 30fps can use a lot of storage space very quickly. Bear this is mind if you want to record footage that you can keep.
  • We recommend that you shop for a dash cam with a minimum of 720p (high definition). Drop below this and footage may be too grainy to be admissible as evidence.
  • Similarly, it is advisable to choose a camera that records in a minimum of 24fps. Most dash cams record in 30 fps, which will produce perfectly smooth footage.
Features to Look Out For

Dashboard cameras are available with a range of functions and features that can improve performance and usability. Look out for the following when making your choice:

  • Always choose a model that can detect impact or sudden changes of direction. Good cameras will mark and lock footage at such times to prevent overwriting.
  • Many dash cams come with GPS tracking so you can pinpoint exactly where footage was recorded and in many cases, how fast you were travelling. Some dash cams can even issue speed camera and red light camera warnings.
  • Parking modes ensure your interests are covered when you’re not driving. Impact sensors can set the camera to record if anyone bumps into, or tries to enter, your vehicle

Why Lithium? 10 Reasons Why Lithium Batteries Are The Best Choice For Off-Grid Travellers

For many adventurers, travel is a way of life. You like to spend your days exploring, off-roading and packing in adrenaline rushes. If you love to travel, camp and live on the road, RVs with lithium-powered batteries are your new best friend.

Over the past decade, lithium batteries have become the ‘go-to choice’ for portable electrical storage systems in the RV industry. While the price point may seem like a con, lithium batteries offer your caravan or camper faster and more efficient charging, for only a quarter of the weight of AGMs – plus, they are also long-lasting.

Considering switching to lithium batteries? Let us help you make your decision. Here are 10 reasons why lithium batteries are the best for your RV.

ENERGY LEVELS

Lithium batteries are equipped to release energy at any level required by your RV. The amp-hour your RV needs is the total amount of energy that you wish to store and draw from. With an excellent inverter capacity, lithium batteries ensure that all electrical appliances can run simultaneously.

SIZE AND WEIGHT

Lithium batteries are beneficial for camper trailers, campervans, caravans, and small motorhomes as they store three to four times the electrical energy of a conventional battery. You can also increase storage space within the RV, as lithium batteries are lighter and smaller in size, reducing the overall payload.

CONSTANT VOLTAGE

With conventional deep-cycle batteries like AGMs, voltage drops from 12.75 to 11.40 as they discharge. A drop in voltage can also occur with an increased payload. However, with lithium batteries, RVs can harness peak power and offer substantially constant voltage. Regardless of the load, lithium batteries also ensure your RV doesn’t have power problems.

ACCEPTS HIGH CHARGE CURRENT

If you travel in your RV often, it is essential that your vehicle be equipped with the right tools to manage current. A lithium-powered battery is able to accept 100 to 200% of high charge currents, unlike AGM batteries which are limited to only 25 to 30%. Realistically, you need an RV that can accept exceptionally high charges of current, and switching to a lithium battery takes care of that.

WITHSTANDS ROUTINE DEEP DISCHARGES

With a conventional battery like lead acid and AGM, typical lifespans range between 500-600 cycles with 50% routine discharge. However, lithium batteries are claimed to last for 2,000 cycles with 20% remaining in routine discharges. This offsets the higher costs of owning lithium batteries and fully recharges in lesser time compared to an AGM battery.

PROVIDES SAFETY

For both newbie and veteran travellers, safety is a key concern. Ensuring the interiors of the caravan are well-ventilated is essential to stop hydrogen build-up. Batteries must be kept in ventilated areas to prevent damage and prevent the risk of fires. Lithium batteries are non-cobalt based so they prevent the risk of fires and can be placed in enclosed spaces like RVs and caravans.

IMPROVED PERFORMANCE

Batteries are prone to be affected in lifespan and performance in extreme weather conditions. A lead-acid battery becomes weaker in winter due to increased load. However, lithium batteries warm up on use, reducing the battery’s resistance and increasing its voltage. Using lithium batteries in RVs and caravans in extreme weather is the better option, as they can also be engineered for specific temperatures.

COST SAVING

Off-grid travellers and RV owners usually choose lead-acid batteries to save on costs. However, the lifespan of such batteries is lesser, meaning you spend more on replacing your system. While lithium batteries are priced a little higher, their long lifespan and efficiency mean that you won’t have to constantly replace your battery, helping you save money and time in the long run.

LONGER LIFESPAN

As lithium batteries have low discharge rates, they can be used for longer time periods without any harm. Additionally, conventional batteries are reliant on temperatures below 25 degrees Celsius to perform. With lithium batteries, you don’t have to worry about temperature and other disruptions and can enjoy travelling peacefully for a very long time!

FASTER CHARGING

Another advantage that lithium batteries offer RVs is a fast-charging rate. This makes them more efficient as they can be charged at a higher amperage, making them an attractive investment for RV and caravan owners. Lithium batteries are also suited to use with solar charging systems, making them perfect for off-grid travellers.

So, how do you choose the right lithium battery for your off-grid travels?

Our experience suggests that the Invicta Lithium Batteries are the perfect match for a range of quality RV battery charging and monitoring systems. BMPRO’s Invicta batteries weigh less than 50% of a lead acid battery and have longer lifecycles, utilisation capacity and better lower discharge.

We believe that the future of RV power is lithium. With many manufacturers already shifting to lithium batteries for cars and other vehicles, the RV industry and off-grid travellers should make a switch to lithium to enjoy a smoother travel experience.

Car Tips

Top Tips For Maintaining Your Car’s Air Conditioning System

Summer in Australia can get exponentially hot. Temperatures can reach up to 30 °C, so it pays to prepare for the blazing days ahead. Usually, people would remind themselves to stay hydrated and wear lighter pieces of clothing. However, one of the most important yet often overlooked tasks that should be done during this season is maintaining a car’s air conditioning system.

You use your car’s A/C almost every day, and it practically becomes a necessity once summer hits. Unfortunately, this can lead to overworked car air conditioners, which have a higher chance of malfunctioning when you least expect it. Because of this, it’s smart to keep these following tips in mind to help keep your car’s air conditioning system in good shape:

1. Have it Cleaned by the Pros

Letting a professional clean your vehicle’s A/C will ensure that the air will stay fresh and cool. The professionals, after all, have the proper equipment and experience to thoroughly clean the air conditioning system.

2. Regular Professional Maintenance Is a Must

It’s crucial to take your car to a reliable car air conditioning service regularly. When you allow car experts to take a look what’s under the hood, they can easily spot A/C-related problems and fix them before they can do more harm to the entire system.

3. Don’t Always Rely on DIY Jobs

Even if you say you have experience fixing your car’s air conditioner, it’s still in your best interest to let a mechanic take care of the repairs. The professionals have the experience, skill, and tools to fix any air conditioning issue without compromising your car’s health.

4. Have the Problems Addressed Quickly

The moment you notice your car’s A/C is acting up, you need to bring it to a nearby car air conditioning service center ASAP. It’s unwise to ignore the early warning signs of a damaged air conditioning system because it can affect the other components of your vehicle like the wiring.

5. Let the A/C Run for About 10 Minutes Every Week

Letting the air conditioning run for 10 minutes a week will help keep its gas pressure at an optimum level. It’ll also ensure that the compressor will work properly during summer. To do this properly, however, you need to turn on the system to its coolest setting and highest fan speed.

6. Let the A/C’s Defrost Mode Run for About 5 to 10 Minutes

Another thing you need to leave running for about 10 minutes is the air conditioner’s defrost function. Doing so will eliminate excess moisture in the system, preventing mildew buildup and musty odours as a result.

7. Remember to Recirculate the Air From Within

Switching to the A/C’s recirculation mode will keep the vehicle’s interior cool even when it’s hot outside. This mode is the best way to maximise an air conditioner’s operating power since it’ll only pull air that’s within the cabin.

8. Keep the Car’s Interior Clean

Dust, dirt, and other particles can hinder the air conditioner from working efficiently. For this reason, your car’s carpets, mats, and seats must be vacuumed regularly.

9. Don’t Pre-Cool Your Car

Although sliding into a pre-cooled car is comfortable, it can affect the air conditioner’s performance. The car’s air conditioning system can cool things more effectively when there’s airflow. Thus, instead of waiting until the car’s interior is cold, switch on the A/C once the vehicle starts cruising through the roads.

10. Park Under the Shade

When you leave your car under the sun for too long, its interior can get considerably hot. As a result, the car’s A/C will have to work twice as hard just to get the temperature down. That’s why it’s smart to park under a shade or install sun shades to avoid causing this problem.

Staying cool during Australia’s summer months will be easier if you keep your car’s air conditioning system in good shape. Plus, if you make it a habit of following these A/C maintenance tips regularly, your vehicle’s air conditioner will remain efficient all year round.

Cangoee’s Intelligent Power Storage System Powers Australia’s Caravan Industry

Cangoee Australia brings a new intelligent and integrated off-grid power solution to caravanners, campsites, and other four-wheeled recreational vehicles.

The stylish, lightweight, but highly durable alternative to a dual battery system was developed by the director, and former Toyota engineer Andrew Holden, whose design has proven to be a crucial part of the emergency services in Australia for over 20 years.

The latest version of the battery is designed for recreational settings. The range of off-grid and on-grid power solutions is snowballing to meet the ever-growing needs of Australia’s 5.5 million owners of 4WD. It will soon provide an adaptable battery solution for homes similar to Tesla Powerwall.

“We’ve been around since 2006, mainly in the emergency services market. But with COVID, we took the technology that we already had and pivoted it towards the recreational market,” said Holden.

“Our system is fully integrated and easy to install and, in many cases, can reduce the typical installation time from 10 or 12 hours down to just two or three.

Holden said that due to challenges in staff, the “need to take the complexity and time out” from the installation process is important for workshop owners. They made sure that the installation fit specific models and was plug-and-play without the drilling, cutting, or wire-tapping.

The Cangoee Power Node uses prismatic lithium-iron-phosphate cells set in an aluminum case to offer a staged approach to delivering power.

The slimline units are equipped with an internal battery management system, a 40-amp dual-stage DC/DC charger, and a power source, which can provide up to 100 amps of continuous discharge and rapid charge and can be arranged in parallel to increase power availability.

The Cangoee system is available in short and long-series packages suitable for various uses, including emergency services, large corporate fleets, canopy builders, 4WD enthusiasts, and the body-building motor sector. It is also small enough to fit under seats, the rear parcel shelf, or unused areas.

“The system also knows the status of the door locks, the headlights, the state of battery charge, and so on,” he said.

“All of those things are feedback into the control system to ensure you’re never left without power. We are able to tailor solutions to suit customers, or simply offer a standardized solution like an Anderson plug.”

He said that the system could be charged by the battery, alternator, and solar panel. It is also possible to add an integrated power control unit that has up to 14 outputs, an HDMI input that allows the use of a touchscreen to control the unit, and most importantly, the option to control the unit with a laptop, a USB cable, and through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

“The other benefit is that if there’s ever a problem, it will instantly go open circuit, and in most cases, the problem is simply fixed by cycling the ignition. And that’s great because it means you don’t have to sort through a massive number of fuses. Just cycle the ignition, and the unit will come back to life,” Said Holden.

Cangoee also has its power distribution unit, which works in conjunction with its Node units or in conjunction with the vehicle CANbus in place of a traditional fuse box.

The plug-and-play system permits easy expansion of systems such as Cangoee’s touchscreen battery monitor, digital switching screen, input/output module, and the gadget CANbus.

“There’s a range of systems ranging from 75-amp hours all the way up to 660-amp hours for the caravan market,” said Holden.

“Typically, the 110-amp hour unit is the highest seller. They’re all designed here in Australia, and we actually manufacture our own electronics here (too). All our Node units are backed by a five-year warranty.”
