Battery Life is Determined by Two Factors
1 1

Absorbed Glass-Mats

Absorbed glass-mats hold all electrolyte tightly around the plates. Minimizing acid stratification and maximizing the power potential of active material.

2 2

More Power Inside

Thicker plates and paste density provide long-lasting power and improve cycling performance to meet today’s start-stop driving and growing electrical demands. AGM batteries add Amp Hour ratings as a measure of battery capacity.

3 3

Sealed and Spillproof

AGM batteries do not have free-flowing liquid. A tough reinforced case and unique cover design make AGM batteries spillproof. Valve-regulated gassing ensures plate balance for reliable performance.

4 4

Knocks and Bumps Ignored

Vibrations can damage a standard flooded battery, but an AGM’s tight plate/separator compression protects against vibration. Absorbed glass-mats preserve the battery’s sensitive components for longer life under the hood.

Note: AGM batteries have different charging profiles than standard flooded batteries and often have different charger settings than traditional ones.

Battery Life is Determined by Two Factors
  • Charge Amount
  • Heat Damage

A typical car battery cannot handle being drained to 50%. It's made to send a lot of amps all at once and get fully recharged. However, if it stays drained, the active components on the lead plates will harden and die. So if you ever need to jump start a car, the battery may be damaged and needs to be replaced.

ANSWER: Batteries wear out over time, but there are also issues that impact battery failure. For example, infrequent startup and prolonged exposure to excessive heat or cold may potentially affect the lifespan of your battery.
Do I need to charge my battery after I jump-start my vehicle?
