Absorbent Glass Mat or AGM Batteries were popularised as a sealed lead acid battery in the early 1980s. They were primarily used to improve reliability and to reduce the weight of military aircraft, vehicles, and UPS.
Compared to the flooded version, AGMs can charge up to 5 times faster. The batteries also have the ability to deep cycle and offers an 80% depth of discharge. These are also designed spill-proof, which is why they are preferred for upscale motorcycles.
Home of 12 Volt carries a wide range of products, including varieties of Australian AGM Batteries. There are two retail outlets in South Australia where you can get accessory plates and domes, battery packs, AMP-FIBIAN step down, and other products.
The company also participates in Caravan, Camping, 4WD and off-road shows throughout Australia.
Different AGM Batteries in Australia
One of the high-quality AGM Batteries, it is a completely sealed hybrid battery that is suitable for use in caravans, camp trailers, and motor homes. With a very low internal resistance, it can charge at a rapid rate. In 2 to 3 hours of charging, fully charged is achieved.
Configured as a primary cranking battery instead of a deep cycle battery, it is classified as a hybrid battery.
Thumper Redback Extreme AGM
This offers extreme deep cycle that is preferred for use as a second under bonnet battery in caravans, camper trailers, and motor homes. With heavier lead plates used in production, this is one of the Australian AGM Batteries that can handle continual discharge of heavy draw appliances.
Because it is vibration resistant, it also makes an idea off-road battery. The bonded element design makes it strong against rough terrain.
Sealed AGM Deep Cycle Batteries
Unlike regular deep-cycle batteries, the Fullriver Deep Cycle battery uses an active paste material for the plates with a different chemistry, making it one of the most reliable AGM Batteries. This results in a much longer life in deep cycle applications with a maximum power output that is only slightly reduced.
