batteries offer long life, maintenance free power for Motorcycles, Alarm Systems,
Emergency Lighting, UPS, ATV, Scooter, Wheelchair, and many other applications.
Most AGM batteries can be matched by their dimension and voltage. The mAh or
Ah number is battery capacity and may vary slightly. UPS devices generally use
1/4 inch terminals (T2 or F2). Home alarm systems generally use 3/16 inch terminals
(T1 or F1). We offer chargers for most of these batteries, please see "Related
Product" for each item. We offer high quality AGM batteries from PowerSonic
Question: What is
the differenc between GEL and AGM batteries?
Answer: Both AGM and GEL batteries are sealed, valve-regulated,
and non-spillable batteries. The electrolyte in AGM batteries or gel batteries
does not flow like a normal liquid. For AGM batteries, the liquid electrolyte
is stored in a sponge-like matted glass fiber separator material (Absorbed Glass
Mat). In GEL batteries the electrolyte is mixed with an additive that changes
it into a gel-like material. This method of storing electrolyte protects the
plates during heavy deep-discharges.
At lower temperatures (near
32°F) the power declines faster in a GEL battery than in an AGM battery.
AGM batteries perform better than GEL batteries during high current, high power
applications and in extremely cold environments.
Flooded or wet batteries
are more easily replaced by AGM batteries than GEL batteries because GEL batteries
have a different charge requirement (mainly lower finishing voltages).
