AGM Batteries


I did a Google and it said that it used a glass mat for electrolyte between cells. What does this mean/how does it work? Also could I use a non-agm in place of an AGM in a vehicle that calls for AGM?

In: Technology

The lead plates are packed tightly in the glass mat separaters and all the electrolyte is absorbed into them, rather than a more conventional flooded cell type battery. Using a non agm battery will work but will usually fail quicker when the application calls for agm.
