What does AGM stand for?

AGM stands for Absorbed Glass Mat. It is a porous glass mat separator with the ability to absorb a large amount of electrolyte while still allowing some pores to be unfilled. These empty pores act as channels for oxygen to move from the +ve plate to the –ve plate. That is why these batteries are called VRLA AGM batteries.

What are the advantages of VRLA AGM batteries?

Advantages of VRLA AGM batteries are:

  • Widest temperature range of all the battery types
  • Lowest self-discharge rate of all the battery types
  • Best shock/vibration resistance of all the battery types
  • Best performance for high power applications
  • Less expensive than VRLA Gel batteries

What are the disadvantages of VRLA AGM batteries?

Disadvantages of VRLA AGM batteries are:

  • Don’t perform as good as flooded or VRLA Gel batteries in regular deep discharge (>80% DOD) applications
  • Don’t perform as good as VRLA Gel batteries in low power applications

Do you have VRLA AGM batteries?
