Optima Batteries, the most advanced AGM (Absorbable Glass Mat) battery on the market today.
Optima high-performance AGM batteries are like no other battery in the world. The unique Spiralcell design offers the most advanced technology and provides a strong and clean power source that far surpasses any of today's filled lead-acid batteries. With Optima under your hood, you can count on a longer lasting battery life under starting and deep-cycle applications.
The AGM battery has a positive and negative plate separated by a glass mat. The acid which is a gel, is absorbed in the glass mat, making it non-spillable. The most advanced AGM Battery in today's market is the Optima Battery.
Optima Batteries contain spirally wound cells, as opposed to traditional flat plate batteries. The spiral cell design allows the use of lead in its purest form, as each cell has spirally wound plates separated by a glass mat, then pressed into tubes restricting the need for plate strengtheners. As alloys are used for strengtheners in flat plate batteries, their shelf life is limited, sometimes as low as three months. An Optima Battery however with pure lead has a shelf life of at least 12 months, up to 18 months depending on temperature.
Spirally wound cells allow the Optima Battery to be true Deep Cycle and have extraordinary High Start Power, as well as being 15 times more resilient to vibration. As an Optima Battery absorbs its own gases, there is no emitting of gas under normal charging conditions.
