AGM is an acronym for absorbed glass mat. The battery’s electrolyte is fully absorbed in a matted glass fibres, creating a spill-proof, leak-proof battery design that doesn’t leak acid like flooded batteries will if tipped on their side. The glass fibres also enable a lower electrical resistance, which optimizes current flow plates for a more efficient transfer of power.
The glass mats in AGM batteries are wrapped around the positive battery plates, which helps prevent damage from vibration and extend cycling. The battery’s plates are packed tightly in the case partitions, providing further vibration protection. AGM battery designs can have over twice the cycle life of a conventional flooded product in the right application. They also offer many times the vibration resistance of conventional flooded batteries.
Extensive research and development of AGM technology has allowed our company to incorporate several key design features that collectively create a superior product which provides highly efficient energy storage and power delivery solutions across a variety of platforms.
One way, pressure relief valves maintain correct internal pressure for optimum performance – valves are UL recognized and 100% tested.
Ultra-premium glass mat separators prevent uneven electrolyte saturation and acid stratification, while providing lower electrical resistance for optimized power flow.
Exclusive AGM electrolyte and filling process uses high purity sulfuric acid and pure, demineralized and deionized water to eliminate contaminants that compromise performance.
Heavy duty grids are designed for maximum durability in demanding deep cycle applications.
A Gel battery is better suited for super-deep discharge applications, which means it can withstand deeper discharges without damaging the battery’s performance. However, due to the physical properties of the gelled electrolyte, Gel battery power declines faster than an AGM battery as the temperature drops below 32ºF (0ºC). AGM batteries excel for high current, high power applications and in extremely cold environments. AGM batteries deliver a better dual purpose solution for a combination of starting and accessory power.
