What is AGM, and what kind of technology it used?

Absorbed Glass Mat batteries are constructed differently than the traditional flooded battery. This write up covers mainly the ORIENT  POWER 12V 200AH AGM BATTERY, but also applies to most other brands of deep cycle AGM batteries.

In AGM batteries (also called starved electrolyte), there is a thin ultra-fine fiberglass mat sandwiched between the plates that are saturated with battery acid to about 95% of what they can hold. This mat is then packed in between the plates and slightly compressed, then welded/soldered in place. Because the plates and mats are packed fairly tight, they are almost immune to vibration. This special design protected the battery from damage during long distance transport, lifting and handling.

AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) sealed battery technology was originally invented in 1980, and developed and introduced in 1985 for military aircraft where power, weight, safety, and reliability were paramount considerations. The ORIENT  POWER 12V 200AH AGM BATTERY based on VRLA (Valve Regulated Sealed Lead-Acid Battery). Sometimes referred to as VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead-Acid). Several manufacturers now produce AGM batteries, but ORIENT POWER was the profect factory applied AGM technology for commercial non-military use.
