These batteries are AGM lead-acid batteries where “AGM” stands for “absorbed glass mat.” This means that the mat absorbs the electrolyte inside of the battery, unlike the black box battery, and hence it performs better since it doesn’t allow any leak.

Is a OPTIMA battery AGM?

The acronym “AGM” stands for “Absorbed Glass Mat,” which in the case of a lead-acid battery, means the electrolyte in the battery is absorbed into fiberglass matting in between the plates in the cells. All OPTIMA batteries are AGM batteries, but no OPTIMA batteries are gel batteries.

Can you charge a dead OPTIMA battery?

Is OPTIMA battery AGM or gel?

An OPTIMA battery is neither a gel battery nor a regular flooded battery. OPTIMA is a SPIRALCELL TECHNOLOGY AGM battery.

How many years do OPTIMA batteries last?

In an application like that, they could expect to see an OPTIMA battery last up to four years. However, in a more moderate climate, like San Diego, if someone might see four years out of a flooded battery, they could see up to eight out of an OPTIMA.
