hi

wondering if anyone can shed some light - if i use a leisure battery which is also the started battery on my van, whats the lowest level i could run it down too and still start my van?

does the voltage available to start drop when the battery charge level drops or does it stay at 12v but have less cranking power?

a leisure battery isnt designed to start a vehicle



as its designed to give a small current over a long period
and a starter battery is designed to give a large current over a small period


you kill battery in no time

same vice versa
