AGM Deep Cycle RV Battery
An AGM deep cycle RV battery, like the ODYSSEY® battery from EnerSys®, will help ensure you thoroughly enjoy your outing without having to worry about running out of power. Our batteries are not only durable, but they are also strong. With total confidence, you can use all of the conveniences in your Recreational Vehicle (RV) – all of your electronics and whatever else you may have.
Why AGM Deep Cycle Batteries Are a Must for RVs
Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries are powerful enough to handle the demands of an RV, as well as everything inside. It provides the amperage that allows RVs to run for an extended period. Even better, AGM batteries are hassle-free. They’re entirely sealed, so you’ll never have to worry about their contents spilling.
Conventional lead acid batteries tend to leak because of the way they’re designed. They’re filled with liquid that contains substances known as electrolytes, which help provide the power. In a conventional battery, however, these electrolytes are free to move throughout the battery, possibly resulting in leaking. On the other hand, the separators in AGM batteries absorb and hold the liquid in the battery, allowing them to still provide ample power without the risk of leaking and spilling.
AGM batteries not only don’t leak, but they do a better job of holding a charge. They also don’t sulfate when not used regularly, unlike traditional lead acid batteries. If your RV sits idle for extended periods, your AGM ODYSSEY® battery will be ready to go when you are.
Another benefit of AGM batteries is that you can mount them in just about any position, except inverted. They’re sealed so that the liquid won’t escape. If it’s in an odd position, such as on an incline or sideways, the battery will continue to function. This flexibility can come in handy if you have limited space.
AGM batteries also stand up very well against vibration. If you drive your RV over uneven, rocky terrain, your battery will remain safe and sound. There’s an excellent chance that you’ll hit some bumpy ground on the way to your campsite, but you won’t have to worry about it hurting your battery and causing you to lose power. If you had a conventional battery, you’d probably be stressing out with every bump.
There are a lot of batteries out there for RVs, of course, but you really shouldn’t go cheap. The last thing you’d ever want would be for your battery to fail when you are miles away from civilization. That won’t be a concern when you invest in an AGM battery, like the ODYSSEY® battery from EnerSys®.
Other Reasons to Go with AGM Batteries
AGM batteries get their name from their fiberglass matting. The matting, which contains a mixture of electrolytes and acid, is packed between plates inside the battery. That’s one of the reasons you won’t need to worry about filling an AGM battery with water – the design of the battery allows hydrogen and oxygen molecules to combine naturally.
They also have a very low rate of self-discharge. Conventional lead acid batteries lose a great deal of juice the longer they’re not used. On the other hand, AGM batteries only lose about three percent each month.
