At 8 Ball Camper Conversions we pride ourselves on our high standard of electrical installation and the equipment we supply. All the 12 volt items installed use low energy technology for the longest battery life possible. To prolong your wild VW Camper experience we supply as standard an Exide gel battery offering up to double the usable power in comparison to a standard leisure battery. In conjunction with a DURITE 140amp intelligent charge relay this battery is continuously charged as needed by the vehicle’s engine. When the vehicle is parked up and connected to the mains, the BCA Power Distribution Unit constantly maintains the leisure battery giving you the optimum camper experience. All cables all double insulated to the highest standard and we take the upmost care in ever installation.
All standard camper conversion come as standard with the electrical equipment below:
- WH900 GELL LEISURE BATTERY
- DURITE 0-727-33 12V 140 AMP INTELLIGENT CHARGE RELAY
- SARGENT EC155 POWER SUPPLY UNIT .EC50 CONTROL PANEL EC155 230V & 12V HARNESS

With a fully charged leisure battery you can typically camp off grid for anything from 2 to four days, depending on electrical usage. Everything in the camper van will work on the 12 volt leisure battery apart from the 240 volt 3 pin sockets, which only operate when the vehicle is connected to the mains.
To increase the time you can spend off-grid we also supply and fit solar charge systems to many of our VW Camper Vans
Solar technology has advanced in recent years and we can install a slim-line solar panel to fit on a pop top or fixed roof. They are approximately 2,5 mm thick and very low profile in appearance. We typically fit 150w semi flex solar panels in conduction with an MPPT digital charge relay to give the best output to your leisure battery in good sunlight .
As all of our the VW Campers are built in-house we have many years of electrical experience and we are more than happy to fit extra lights , charge points, and a whole host of electrical extras you may think of. Normally this is at little extra cost, but it helps to ensure that your van has everything you want.

Bikes & Boards – An 8 Ball Camper vision (part 1)
Having spent many great trips away with friends in their camper vans, I’ve always been tempted to buy one of my own.
Stories of a travelling photographer
I’ve always had a van to use for shoots, they come in so handy to keep my kit in and keep it organised. But I also use my van as a mobile office to edit in, athletes use it to get changed in and of course to hide in when the weather turns bleak.
