AGM or Absorbent Glass Mat is an integrated lead-acid battery that delivers superior strength to support today’s cars and start-stop applications with higher electrical demands.
AGM batteries are highly noise tolerant, are fully sealed, non-spillable, and maintenance free. Compared to traditional lead-acid batteries AGM provides improved cycling efficiency, reduced gassing and acid leakage.

Why AGM Batteries
Designed for start-stop vehicle and higher demand electricity vehicle (Audio System, Power Door and others Electronic Accessories).
If you are looking to drive a vehicle with various technological devices or plug-in accessories, find a battery with a deep cycle or a battery made with advanced technologies such as AGM.
AGM batteries are a perfect luxury option for high-end and compact fuel-efficient cars with high power requirements, especially for those wanting better durability especially longer life in car batteries. Electronic devices including DVD players, GPS, heated seats, and audio equipment all refer to the battery supply.
Indeed, AGM batteries are the correct choice for start-stop vehicle development, which has achieved rapid traction in Europe and has reached the U.S. market in 2013 model year vehicles. And recently AGM Batteries applied on Malaysia local brand vehicle like Perodua and Proton.
Start-stop car technology automatically turns off the engine when the vehicle stops, e.g. at a traffic light or in stop-and-go traffic, and restarts it quickly and silently when the clutch is activated or the brake pedal is released. When the engine is off, the battery is the primary power source for all electronic equipment in the vehicle, such as air conditioning, radio, and navigation. However, still more tension is placed on the battery in advanced start-stop systems with features such as regenerative braking or passive boost.
These vehicles require a battery that is more durable than the standard lead-acid battery to continue support electrical loads during engine-off moments and accommodate a large number of starts per ride. AGM is the technology of choice with superior cycling power, charging tolerance and the potential to work at a low charge level.
Structure of AGM batteries
The positive and negative plates in AGM batteries are separated by an absorbent glass sheet, which collects and retains the acid of the battery and stops it from running freely within the cell. In the plastic case, the plates are pressed tight into each cell and held under pressure. The internal compression prevents the loss of plate material caused by spinning and allows a considerably longer life. The compression factor also reduces internal resistance and maximizes the power efficiency of the pulses. A robust shell provides the stability required for the entire life of the battery.
The basic architecture also requires relief venting to relieve slight gassing pressure that occurs while charging. The valves open at low pressure and then shut so that air does not escape into the battery.
