How a Dual Isolator System Can Enhance the Battery Life of your Car

by Renan Caballero Sales Executive

Want to improve the efficiency of your battery performance? Investing on a battery isolator is the way to go. Though buying one can put a dent on your budget, it can really help eliminate a lot of problems and hassles when it comes to ensuring a sufficient electric power supply for your car, boat, truck or even airplane.

What is battery isolator?

It is an electrical device that efficiently segregates direct current into other branches, allowing current in one direction in each area that needs power supply. A battery isolator allows you to completely discharge one battery without the need of discharging the starting battery.

Battery isolators are usually used by people who posses large amount of electronics and accessories in the vehicle. Below are the other best benefits of dual batter isolator system.

More power reserves

This is the primary main benefit of using a battery isolator. It offers you the ability to charge more than one battery simultaneously from a single power source, without any need of connecting the battery terminals together. The battery isolator ensures that there’s enough power to start the engine, or accommodates high electric current loads.

Many motorists listen to their stereo or use other accessories like computers, lights, radio, and TV without the engine running. This can often result to drained or dead batteries, which can again lead to some other ensuing problems. To avoid that predicament, using a battery isolator is the best solution.

Types of Battery Isolator and Their Benefits

There are two main types:

Solenoid helps to control the electric current flow between two batteries utilizing high-current relays. One major advantage is that it includes a preservation of voltage across contacts. However, many who have used this type of isolator are saying that it isn’t as reliable as the diode based isolators.

Diode isolator, on the other hand, contains two high-current diodes. They serve as a heat sink that works best for the batteries. The best benefit with this type of isolator is that it has a long lifespan with a low amount of maintenance.
