AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) technology, designed with outstanding performance for Start / Stop vehicle and manufactured to cope with regenerative braking and other advanced Start / Stop functionality.
PLEASE NOTE AGM batteries can be fitted to all Start / Stop vehicles but you must replace ‘like for like’ where AGM was originally fitted.
AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) is manufactured specifically for Micro-Hybrid vehicles fitted with the Start/Stop, Brake Energy Regeneration and other technologies designed to reduce fuel consumption, such as:
The Start/Stop Plus AGM batteries have increased cyclic performance. Not only can they cope with increased demand from fuel saving devices on the vehicle, they are also able to power a wider range of ancillary equipment than the ECM, even when the engine is in the idle position.
AGM – Battery Evolution
One of the main distinguishing features of the AGM battery is the ‘Gas Recombination’ technology it utilises. This process keeps any Oxygen & Hydrogen that may have escaped from a standard lead acid battery within the AGM battery throughout the charging cycle. The Oxygen released from the positive plate recombines with the Hydrogen in the negative plate, following the breakdown of water during charging. This establishes a closed electrochemical cycle, with ZERO gas emission or water consumption.
