Why Use Deep Cycle AGM Batteries?
Deep Cycle AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) batteries are heavy duty and robust batteries, designed for accessories and appliances that draws power continuously. On-board electronics such as sounders, radar, lights, radio, pumps and fridges will draw steady continuous power. The benefits of a Deep Cycle AGM is that it can withstand a full discharge with minimal life reduction, recharge and you're ready to go again, making it perfect for both everyday use and seasonal storage. Standard automotive/marine batteries are designed to provide a short, high current burst, to start the motor and tend to drop a cell when fully discharged, resulting in loss of cranking power and thus a reduced lifespan.
