ARB Dual battery systems
An ARB dual battery system will allow your 4x4 to power additional accessories without the risk of flattening the main battery.
As well as offering an independent power source for items such as fridges and camp lights, and providing added power when winching, a dual battery system offers the four wheeler peace of mind in the event of a main battery failure.
The t ypes of dual battery controlling options available when you choose an ARB dual battery system include the smart solenoid, solenoid and isolator. The most appropriate device will be determined by factors such as vehicle t ype and what accessories will run off the second battery.
Battery choice is also an area that requires consideration and ARB distributes the leading types. Staff at ARB dealerrships will be happy to listen to your requirements and recommend a suitable system.
Whilst battery type and management system choice is important, a secure mounting system for your second battery is equally critical. ARB battery trays are carefully engineered to ensure you get the optimum size battery mounted in the most suitable location under the bonnet.
Where necessary, ARB battery trays include sturdy mounting brackets to relocate underbonnet components that may otherwise interfere with the positioning of a second battery. All ARB battery trays are manufactured from powder- coated steel and engineered for maximum strength.
ARB battery trays are available on their own, or as part of a complete dual battery kit. These kits are supplied with the tray and mounting hardware, factory terminated wiring and either a solenoid or smart solenoid, depending on the vehicle type. ARB can also supply a wide selection of sockets, plugs and switches that can be wired to the second battery to run accessories from.
