Absorbed Glass Mat, a newer type of battery construction that uses saturated absorbant glass mats rather than gelled or liquid electrolyte. Somewhat more expensive than flooded (liquid), but offers very good reliability.
Absorbed Glass Mat, a sealed battery that uses saturated absorbed glass mats rather than a gelled or liquid electrolyte between the plates. AGM batteries are more expensive than gell cell batteries or flooded types, but they have superior performance.
Absorbed Glass Mat. Battery – Uses a fiberglass-like separator to hold the electrolyte in place. The physical bond between the separator fibers, the lead plates, and the container makes it spill-proof and the most vibration and impact resistant lead-acid battery available today. It uses almost the same voltage set-points as a wet/flooded cell and thus can be used as drop-in replacement for a wet/flooded cell.
battery that is maintenance free and holds acid in a fiberglass mat to prevent it from spilling even if the outer battery case is broken. Typically much more expensive and less cycle life than flooded acid batteries. Mats can be assembled in flat layers or in a spiral design (Optima brand).
A technique for sealed lead-acid batteries. The electrolyte is absorbed in a matrix of glass fibers, which holds the electrolyte next to the plate, and immobilizes it preventing spills. AGM batteries tend to have good power characteristics, low internal resistance, and good behavior during charging.
