Split Charging DIY Kit
Xtremevan Xtremevan is offline 23-06-11, 15:30

Following many requests from you guys that like playing with vehicle electrics, we have decided to make use of some 100 amp relays that we have tucked away. By adding extra parts we are able to offer a 'Budget' DIY Split Charging Kit that is unique to forum members. This kit contains everything that is required, including 110amp 16mm cable (5 mtrs), 100amp (Nagares RL/180-12) relay, cable ties, fuse holders & fuses etc, etc plus full easy to follow fitting instructions and advice at the end of a phone if needed.

Price 50.00 delivered to your door

If you require and more details / advice - please just give us a shout.

Can be purchased via the link below:

Please not this in NOT suitable for newer vehicles with inteligent alternators... Bear with us on this, we are figuring it out! - please see progress below

Just to update this post regarding the inteligent alternators, which we have listed above:

As we have yet had the opportunity to investigate this Black/Yellow wire at the fuse box I would suggest that the following checks are done on this wire before using it to trigger the split charge relay:
1. This wire is 0 volts with the ignition switch in the off position.
2. This wire is 12 volts with the ignition switch in the on position.
3. This wire is 0 volts in the starter motor cranking position.

Alternatively if your vehicle is fitted with the earlier type "non intelligent" alternator, connection to the Blue wire at the alternator will provide a trigger for the split charge relay.

It is also worth mentioning that an additional low powered (VSR) Voltage sensing relay, such as the "Smart Com", may be used to trigger the larger split charging relay, this can be connected to the vehicle battery via a fuse and then the output onto the 100 Amp split charging relay supplied with the kit.

Many thanks



Jay

Hi, thanks for your intrest, we have a couple of options, the first being the DIY kit in this thread, which allows you to have a split charge system set up for charging your leisure battery, you would then have to add fuses for each circuit from this, or the other option is the heavy duty split charge system that has everything built into it and is a very easy plug and play system.

Please find the link to this below:

Its all down to what you want it to do, how much time you want to spend on doing it and of course how much you want to spend

If you would like me to send you the full fitting instructions for both of these, just drop me a pm with your email address and i will fire them accross - the heavy duty split charge has a copy of the instructions on our website

Many thanks

Top quality kit, easy to follow instructions.

Took me around 1 1/2 hours in total to install.

Hi Autospark & anyone else with an opinion on this.

I ordered the heavy duty split charge system a couple of weeks ago, I've been looking at it in the box whilst drinking lots of tea and wondering what the best way is to run the cable from the leisure battery through to the starter battery?

I will be installing the LB under the passenger seat?

Thanks in advance for any advice, a picture tells a thousand words so any pics would be appreciated.

hi chap, someone has put a post on here showing just that, but the best way is along the pass foot well and up behind the dash, you will find a large grommets that you can pop it through and then straight into the battery box - im sure the tread is called heavy duty power dist fitting, i will try and find it for you
many thanks
