Re: Which AGM batteries are best

Not to mention you can put AGM's anywhere, or on their side, they work great on boats and tight spaces where you won't have to touch them..also they don't "off Gas" which is corrosive and dangerous, less of that stuff on a boat the better in my book.. Gel batteries are to sensitive and people end up frying them, and lets face it lead acid is old technology that is troublesome to maintain and limited in charging rates, AGM's should be the only option on a sailboat..upgrade you charger and you'll take full advantage of AGM's benefits, if not they will charge like a lead acid and still be superior in fitment and reliability and safety.
