AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) batteries are a type of lead-acid battery that is commonly used in various applications, including backup power systems, RVs, boats, and automobiles. Unlike traditional flooded lead-acid batteries, AGM batteries use a glass mat separator to absorb and immobilize the electrolyte solution, which reduces the risk of leakage and makes them more resistant to vibration and shock.
To maintain the optimal performance and lifespan of AGM batteries, it is essential to use the appropriate type of battery charger. AGM battery chargers are specifically designed to charge and maintain AGM batteries, and they offer several advantages over standard lead-acid battery chargers.
One of the key advantages of AGM battery chargers is that they can charge AGM batteries at a faster rate than traditional lead-acid battery chargers. This is because AGM batteries have a lower internal resistance, which allows them to accept a higher charging current. AGM battery chargers can also provide a higher voltage output, which is necessary to fully charge AGM batteries.
Another advantage of AGM battery chargers is that they can provide a more accurate and controlled charging profile. AGM batteries require a specific charging profile that includes a bulk charging phase, an absorption
