A deep cycle battery is a lead acid battery that is designed to have a large amount its stored current discharge between charging sessions. It is designed to discharge between 45% and 75%. It has a very heavy non porous battery plates to withstand repeated major discharging and charging cycles. Most people nowadays make use of deep cycle batteries to power up gadgets in their homes. In this article, I am going to mention how a deep cycle battery is used power appliances at home and advantages of using a deep cycle battery.

How to Use a Deep Cycle Battery to Power a Home
A deep cycle battery bank is needed to enable a home power system deliver constant power to the electricity system.

By running the output of a renewable power generator through charge controllers in a deep cycle battery, power can be available 24 hours a day.

It can be charged using the AC current being supplied to youyr home from the grid and can also be charged with Solar energy by making use of Solar panels.

Solar panels can deliver power to the battery during the day time, the battery stores excessive power during low use times, and make them available during high use time usually in the morning and evening. The battery works by converting alternating current (AC) with is stored during the low time hours into Direct Current (DC) when it is needed to supply electric power into the house.

The one main advantage of using a deep cycled battery to power electricity in the house is because the battery can supply power in the house 24 hours everyday, as long as solar panel continues to draw energy from the sun, thereby saving you electricity bills.
