AGM Batteries: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Absorbed Glass Matt batteries are here to stay and they may look like most other batteries, but that’s where the similarities end. How they are charged, tested and applied differs greatly from traditional maintenance free batteries. The discussion will be around what AGM batteries are, the advantages of the technology, the disadvantages of the technology, and the discussion to have with your customers to avoid misapplication of the batteries.
