As for AGM and gel batteries (they also have a common name — VRLA, a valve-regulated lead-acid battery, a lead-acid battery with valve regulation) … First you need to look at the price. If the high cost does not scare away, then the owners of these batteries will be able to discharge them almost endlessly without loss of characteristics — up to half a thousand times in the case of AGM and one and a half times more if it comes to gel. Not for nothing that those and others are shown to be used on cars with «start-stop» systems, in which the batteries often work in conditions of periodic and almost complete discharges. They are also often bought for cars for the town, on whose cars there are many powerful current consumers — additional lighting, winches. For extreme operation, there is also the ability to operate at different angles and vibration resistance, and even work with partial damage to the shell. At the same time, they are afraid of overcharging. In addition, the electrolyte does not behave in conditions of severe frost.
The range of batteries is presented in 3 types:
DURALAST, DURALAST GOLD, DURALAST PLATINUM
In the same 1970s, accumulators were built in the US, created using AGM technology — Absorbent Glass Mat. As the name suggests, these batteries use a fiberglass-based absorbent material. It fills the space between the plates and contains the electrolyte in a bonded state. The first mention of gel batteries, where the electrolyte is not in the liquid state, but in the form of jelly, refers to the 1930s. However, they patented such a design and began mass production of batteries with it only in 1957.
Predictably, their use is also seen on two-wheeled vehicles
