WHAT'S THE STORY WITH AGM BATTERIES?

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.

ADVANTAGES OF AGM BATTERIES.

Spill-proof through acid encapsulation in glass 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

 

Less prone to sulfation if not regularly topping charged
