ELECTRICS

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 Sargant EC155 then 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:

  • EXIDE ES900 MARINE LEISURE BATTERY
  • DURITE 0-727-33 12V 140 AMP INTELLIGENT CHARGE RELAY

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.
