Frequently Asked Questions

1. Who invented AGM™ batteries?

AGM technology was developed in the 1980s for the military to improve performance and reliability of batteries.

2. Why is a new technology for batteries needed?

Regulations and gas prices are driving new vehicle technology, which requires a new breed of battery. And consumer demand for modern, power-hungry accessories – such as heated seats, steering wheels, mirrors and windshields, DVD players, GPS Navigation, on-board computers, cell phone chargers, etc. – is also contributing to the need for new battery technology.

3. What are the benefits of AGM batteries?

With an AGM battery, you get 2 batteries in 1 – a starter battery as well as a battery that is able to cycle deeper.

  • AGM batteries provide significant higher vibration resistance for decreased damage and corrosion compared to conventional flooded batteries.
  • AGM batteries provide reliable starting in extreme hot and cold climates.
  • AGM has very low internal resistance and is therefore capable of delivering high currents on demand.
  • AGM batteries offer a DoD (depth-of-discharge) of 80%, whereas flooded batteries are specified at 50% DoD to attain the same cycle life. In other words, AGM batteries offer a higher cycling endurance for today’s demanding vehicles and driving conditions.
  • AGM batteries do not contain any free-flowing acid inside the battery and therefore include the safest (spillproof) lead acid battery technology available.
  • AGM batteries can be installed/oriented on the side (inverted is not recommended) and are the only type of batteries approved to be installed inside the passenger cabin.
  • AGM batteries have more space available (no free flowing acid) for active plate material to provide higher performance and longer life than conventional flooded batteries.
  • There is no water loss with AGM batteries, even in high heat climates. In addition, AGM batteries are maintenance free and provide significant longer life.
  • AGM batteries recharge up to 5X faster than conventional flooded batteries, for better performance and energy capacity.
  • AGM batteries use a recombination reaction to prevent the escape of hydrogen and oxygen gases normally lost in a flooded lead-acid battery (particularly in deep cycle applications). Also, there is no gassing with AGM batteries.
  • AGM batteries are the only batteries approved for UPS/Fed-Ex shipping via ground, air or water.
4. Who is most interested in AGM batteries?

The consumer groups "Good Parent," "Busy Guy" and the "Car Enthusiast" are the adapters of new technology batteries. They drive European Cars, Mini Vans, Pick-up Trucks, Muscle Cars and care about safety, performance and cost of ownership.

5. Where can AGM batteries be installed?
  • AGM batteries can be installed in ANY Auto/Truck/SUV where there is a fitting size available. AGM batteries can replace conventional flooded batteries.
  • If your vehicle came with an AGM battery, you HAVE to replaced it with an AGM. In other words, a AGM cannot get replaced with a conventional flooded battery.
6. What does VRLA mean?

VRLA stands for Valve-Regulated Lead Acid. AGM batteries are also knows as VRLA batteries.

7. What does AGM™ mean?

Absorbent Glass Mat Technology
