Advantages of the AGM battery

What are the advantages of the AGM battery? AGM batteries have a very low internal resistance, are capable to deliver high currents on demand and offer relative long service life, even when deep-cycled. AGM is maintenance free, provides good electrical reliability and is lighter than the flooded lead-acid type. It stands up well to low temperatures and has a low self-discharge. The leading advantages are a charge that is up to five times faster than the flooded version, and the ability to deep cycle. AGM offers a depth-of-discharge of 80 percent; the flooded, on the other hand, is specified at 50 percent DoD to attain the same cycle life.

AGM battery USP’s

  • Spill-proof through acid encapsulation in matting technology
  • High specific power, low internal resistance, responsive to load
  • Up to 5 times faster charge than with flooded technology
  • Better cycle life than with flooded systems
  • Water retention (oxygen and hydrogen combine to produce water)
  • Vibration resistance due to sandwich construction
  • Stands up well to cold temperature
