AGM Absorbed Glass Mat


AGM batteries are similar to GEL batteries, in that they are maintenance free. However, AGM batteries are actually true lead-acid batteries in which the electrolyte is absorbed into a fiberglass mat. The mats also act as separators between the positive and negative plates. The plates in an AGM Battery may be flat or, more exceptionally, wound in a tight spiral. In cylindrical AGMs, the plates are thin and wound, like most consumer disposable and rechargeable cells, into spirals so they are also sometimes referred to as spiral wound.
