Deep Cycle AGM Batteries have all the advantages of Gel Batteries, but they are designed to take much more cyclic and voltage abuse than the standard 12V Battery. Deep Cycle is a great way to go when it comes to auxiliary batteries, but for many people AGM Batteries (Absorbed Glass Mat) will have huge advantages over the conventional wet cell deep cycle battery. Our AGM battery range provide superior power for your 12V fridges, high powered inverters, lights or any other 12V appliances and much more.
Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) Battery Information
Absorbent glass mat (AGM) is a class of lead-acid deep cycle battery in which the electrolyte is absorbed into a fiberglass mat. These batteries have a valve which will activate when the battery is recharged at high voltage. Valve activation allows some of the active material to escape thus decreasing the overall capacity of the battery. The lids /vents typically have gas diffusers built into them that allow safe dispersal of any excess hydrogen that may be produced during charging. They are maintenance free; and they can often be oriented in any manner, unlike normal lead-acid batteries which must be kept upright to avoid acid spills and to ensure the plates are sitting in the electrolyte. The plates in an AGM battery may be flat like wet cell lead-acid battery, or they may be wound in a tight spiral. The internal resistance of AGM batteries is lower than traditional cells, they can handle higher temperatures, and self discharge more slowly.
- AGM batteries are totally sealed and are easy and safe to transport
- They never need topping up with water
- They can be safely mounted inside a boat, car, caravan, motorhome etc
- AGM batteries only need to be vented to atmosphere, they do not need to be in a sealed box vented to the outside like wet batteries, and can be mounted on their sides or ends if needed.
- Due to their very low internal resistance AGM batteries will fully charge at a lower voltage, and accept a much larger charge current, so when charging from a standard car/truck alternator these batteries will all but fully charge, and they will charge quickly, in about 3 hours!
- AGM batteries can be discharged deeper than conventional deep cycle batteries without major damage.
- AGM batteries only self discharge at the rate of up to 3% per month, and even after 12 months sitting idle can be recharged and put back into full service without any major damage. (A standard deep cycle battery if treated the same way will have destroyed itself, it will no longer hold a good charge)
- AGM batteries were originally developed for the military, they are very robust.
If your main source of charging is from your vehicles alternator, or you need to place your batteries in spaces that are less than ideal, then you should consider using Deep Cycle AGM Batteries as they are totally sealed and spill proof. Other advantages include;
- Longer service life (approx. 2-3 times life expectancy of a Flooded Lead Acid Battery)
- Completely Sealed and Maintenance Free
- Low Deep Cycle Discharge Failure
- Low self-discharge rate (typically 1%-2% per month)
- No gassing off, so they can be safely used inside an enclosed area
- Can be used in saltwater and marine applications
- Higher resistance to vibration
- Higher bulk charge acceptance rate (which means a shorter recharge time)
- Perfect for 12v/24v Appliances
Our 12 Volt Deep Cycle AGM Batteries give superior deep cycling performance for recreational and industrial applications including:
Scrubbers and Sweepers
Aerial Work Platforms
Why you should NOT use an AGM Deep Cycle Battery under the Bonnet as a starting battery in your car: Oil, fuel and other engine lubricants may cause damage to battery casing materials. We strongly recommended that you avoid fitting Deep Cycle Gel Batteries under the bonnet of your vehicle as this will void the warranty the best for under the bonnet are sealed lead acid batteries such as an Exide Batteries we can supply these in our store located in Warana, QLD. We do not ship lead-acid car batteries due to their volatility. For expert, tailored, no-obligation advice on Deep Cycle Batteries email or call our friendly team on 1800 853 315
AGM Deep Cycle Battery - Superior Deep Cycle Performance. Giant Power Deep Cycle AGM batteries are the ultimate in deep cycle technology and performance.
What is an AGM Deep Cycle Battery: Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) technology works by suspending a free electrolyte within highly porous glass fiber mat separators. AGM mats work to eliminate the hazards associated with acid spills or leaks, and also have a sealed maintenance free design that avoids the need for regular topping-up of electrolyte, saving you time.
Giant Deep Cycle AGM batteries utilize the following :
Low internal resistance and low self-discharge rates.
Fast recharge and long battery shelf life.
When fully charged, Giant Power AGM Batteries can be stored for extended periods of time and recharged using a range of AGM compatible battery chargers with temperature compensation needed if installed in a high heat environment.
For more detailed AGM Battery specifications, please refer to the AGM Battery specification sheets shown below and also on each of our AGM Batteries.
Our range AGM Batteries are ideal for use in applications where fast recharge, improved vibration resistance, and superior deep cycle performance is needed for maximum power.
AGM Battery Under Bonnet Fitment Advice
Please remember that oil, fuel and other engine lubricants can cause damage to your battery casing. We strongly recommended that you avoid fitting AGM Deep Cycle batteries under the bonnet of your vehicle as this will void the warranty.
