AGM batteries are one of the best deep cycle batteries South Africa has on offer. They are better suited for applications where a high burst of amps is necessary and offer years more in life expectancy than other battery types. If you’re looking for a deep cycle battery for sale, Probe stocks a variety of AGM deep cycle batteries so you can find the perfect match for your energy needs.

Gel Vs AGM Deep Cycle Battery

A deep cycle battery is specially designed to be discharged and charged repeatedly and they are commonly used in solar power systems. Both gel and AGM batteries are non-spillable deep cycle batteries but there are a few key differences.

  • Gel batteries contain a silica-like gel while AGM batteries use a specially designed glass mat
  • AGM batteries are better for applications that need bursts of amps
  • AGM batteries tend to be more affordable than gel batteries
  • AGM batteries are more durable with a longer lifespan than gel batteries

Charging Deep Cycle AGM Batteries

AGM deep cycle batteries are also used in cars and boats and they may need to be charged in these applications, so you may be looking for a deep cycle battery and charger. When it comes to charging deep cycle AGM batteries, always use a charger with a mode switch specifically for AGM batteries. Pause charging if the ambient temperature reaches 50°C or higher. We recommend limiting the current of the charger to 20% of the battery capacity and using a voltage between 13.6-14.8V depending on whether you are charging after deep cycle use or standby use.
