AGM stands for absorbent glass mat, and this technology is used in all of our batteries. While this technology has been around since the 1980s, we have refined it to meet military specifications, which helps to improve the durability and dependability of your battery. In addition, there are important advantages to absorbent glass mat batteries over other lead-acid batteries. Here’s what makes AGM battery products unique:
1. AGM batteries have a low level of internal resistance
Internal resistance reduces the amount of electricity that can be generated by a battery, and AGM batteries are designed to have lower resistance. You can be sure that our batteries will be able to deliver large amounts of current at any time, which is due to the fact that we use absorbent glass mat technology.
2. You can charge them very quickly
You’ll be able to charge absorbent glass batteries up to five times faster than other products. Furthermore, you will be able to discharge a greater amount of energy from these products, which will make it possible to use the battery for a longer period of time.
3. They tend to be vibration resistant
If you are going to be using these batteries for a motorcycle, race car, ATV, or any other vehicle that’s likely to encounter high levels of vibration, these batteries are probably the best option for you. That’s because they’re specifically designed to be vibration-resistant.
4. AGM batteries are spill and sulfation resistant
AGM batteries are less likely to leak than other products. That’s because the battery acid is encapsulated with matting technology. Also, the batteries are less susceptible to sulfation. This is especially true if you are not likely to regularly top up the battery after it has already been charged.
5. They’re designed to be cold-resistant
If you live in a cold climate, these batteries will be a better option for you than conventional flooded batteries. Not only are AGM batteries more durable in a cold climate, but you’re less likely to have problems with starting your vehicle. The cold-resistance of AGM batteries makes them an excellent choice for RVs, boat batteries, race cars, and more.
6. AGM Batteries are maintenance free
Lifeline batteries are virtually maintenance free as the proprietary designs minimizes liquid loss making them suitable for long term use. Because of this feature AGM batteries are suitable for long term storage as well.
