An AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) battery is a type of sealed lead acid battery. It uses a special fiberglass mat that absorbs and holds the electrolyte between the battery plates. The mat is designed to wick the electrolyte between the battery plates, ensuring consistent contact and reducing the risk of acid spills.
AGM batteries are commonly used in applications that require reliable, maintenance-free power, including backup power supplies, emergency lighting, and uninterruptible power supplies.
They offer a high battery cycle life and have a lower self-discharge rate than other battery types.
