The design of an Absorbed Glass Mat battery differs from that of a standard flooded battery. A thin ultra-fine fiberglass mat is sandwiched between the plates in AGM batteries, which are saturated with battery acid to around 95% of their capacity. This mat is then pressed into place between the plates and welded or soldered in place. The plates and mats are almost vibration-proof since they are packed so tightly.
Valve Regulated Sealed Lead-Acid Batteries, also known as Valve Regulated Lead-Acid Batteries, are used in Concorde Batterie AGM. One thing to remember about AGM batteries: just because they’re AGM doesn’t mean they’re deep cycle batteries. AGM has been used by several businesses, including Optima, for starting batteries and other non-deep cycle applications. The benefits of AGM are still present, but they are not a deep cycle.
Battery Efficiency- This comparison is significant for applications that require a high charge or discharge rate. The internal resistance of a battery indicates its overall charge or discharge efficiency, as well as its capacity to provide high currents without major voltage drops. It is also a measure of the components and construction’s quality.
Internal Resistance Losses in Batteries- Internal resistance losses appear as heat, this is why batteries feel warm after being heavily charged or discharged for a long time. Internal resistance losses in ordinary flooded Lead-Acid batteries are typically between 10% and 15% for new batteries but can be as high as 25% or more for older batteries. This can vary significantly depending on the battery’s age and condition.
