AGM Batteries

AGM Batteries, AGM Battery, AGM Start Stop Batteries, AGM Start Stop Battery

Absorbent Glass Mat Technology

Cyclic Endurance
AGM batteries have up to twice the cyclic stability of conventional flooded batteries

Vibration Resistant
Protected against knock and shocks for a longer life.

Quick Charging
Can charge in far less time than conventional flooded batteries.

ABOUT

AGM is an abbreviation for Absorbent Glass Mat. These battery types are currently installed on the majority the new stop start vehicles and other luxury vehicles currently on the market. AGM Batteries can also be very useful on high performance cars that only do low mileage or vehicles that have heavy battery usage.

Stop start vehicles are more popular due to the various campaigns to reduce fuel emission . The popular demand for AGM batteries has increased by approximately 15% in the past 2 years in the United Kingdom.

Currently the most popular car manufacturers using this technology at the moment are Audi, BMW, Mercedes and Nissan.

BENEFITS

AGM technology outperforms standard flooded lead acid automotive batteries due to their high cold crank values and increased lifespan. AGM batteries use more of the surface area inside the batteries cells enabling faster turnover and higher cranking. The sealed unit design means they are spill and leak proof and totally maintenance free.

An AGM battery can also perform in very low temperatures, which is perfect for the British winters. Because AGM batteries have a unique cell separator, they can perform numerous starting cycles, which is ideal for stop start vehicles.

Is an AGM Battery better than a standard battery?

Yes, an AGM battery outperforms any standard flooded lead acid battery as it has higher CCA (cold cranking amps), can be left for longer periods without a charge and AGM batteries can be.

Can an AGM battery be installed on its side?

Yes, the AGM battery can be installed on it's side because it is a sealed unit so cannot leak and requires no ventilation.

How long could an AGM battery last?

AGM battery types are guaranteed for 5 years by the manufacturer but can last much longer.

Is an AGM Battery better than a standard battery?

Yes, an AGM battery outperforms any standard flooded lead acid battery as it has higher CCA (cold cranking amps), can be left for longer periods without a charge and AGM batteries can be.
