The Absorbed Glass Matt is a special technology that became popular in the 1980s as a sealed lead acid battery for the military. The electrolyte (sulfuric acid) is absorbed by a very fine fiberglass mat, which makes the battery spill-proof. Not only that you can tilt the battery without spilling the electrolyte, but there is no risk of explosion due to leaked gasses. AGM batteries have very low internal resistance, is capable to deliver high currents on demand and offers a relatively long service life, even when deep cycled. AGM provides good electrical reliability and is lighter than the flooded lead acid type of batteries.
The AGM technology also contributes to the free maintenance, and vibration and shock resistance of the battery. You can safely use an AMG battery to power your trolling boat without fear of vibrations of the motor and shocks damaging it.
The sealed lead acid (AMG) – DCM0035 is made with a special low-calcium grid alloy, which promotes 99% oxygen and hydrogen recombination rate.
The weather matters
