What is an AGM battery?

AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) batteries are spill-proof and provide improved charge times and the ability to deep cycle compared to lead-acid batteries. They use liquid acid like a regular lead-acid battery, but their construction is slightly different.

The Battery University provides a detailed explanation of the specific features of AGM batteries.

Why should I use AGM batteries?

AGM batteries are great for motorcycles and marine applications as they won’t spill acid, offer a better weight/performance ratio and vibration resistance compared to lead-acid batteries, and can be fitted at odd angles.
