AGM batteries are like normal lead acid batteries, but instead of having electrolyte (acid) that moves around freely, it is bound in a special glass fiber separator which makes the spill-proof even if there is casing damage.  AGM batteries are high performing batteries which are designed for the power demands of the modern vehicle. It is a standard requirement of many of the new vehicles with stop start technology amongst other things.


AGM which stands for Absorbent Glass Mat batteries have significant advantages over a normal lead acid batteries, they are known to have a lifespan of up to 3 times longer than a conventional battery. AGM batteries are also best suited for vehicles with automatic start-stop systems & braking energy recovery, as a conventional battery is not built to handle the high power demands of these systems. If a car with an advanced automatic start-stop system comes equipped with an AGM battery, then only an AGM battery can be used as a replacement battery. We highly recommend that you follow the specifications given by the manufacturer if you are uncertain.
