About AGM Deep Cycle batteries

AGM batteries are sealed lead-acid batteries. They don't require maintenance - no exposure to acid from the the battery, and no need to top up water. They don't create acid fumes while charging.

Our AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) Deep Cycle batteries have a low self-discharge rate (2% per month), and come with a 5 to 10 year warranty depending on the battery type and usage. We consider them to be the most efficient and cost effective battery type available. The AGM technology allows the battery to be mounted in any position with no risk of leakage.

General AGM Battery Information

General Description These current technology sealed batteries are designed to provide the best performance in deep cycle applications. These batteries provide these benefits with none of the disadvantages of liquid acid batteries

  • do not require maintenance (i.e. no water addition!)
  • do not discharge corrosive gases in significant quantities
  • do not self-discharge at the same rate as other batteries
  • will last three to five times as long as older technology liquid acid batteries

Gas Generation During charging, over 99% of gases generated are recombined inside the battery. This means almost no corrosive gases are discharged. This benefits the user as these batteries can be stored anywhere - even inside! NO corrosion of terminal and interconnecting hardware, and NO requirement to add water or perform maintenance testing

Operation in ANY Position With the advance sealed and leak-proof construction, these batteries are able to be used in any position. This makes installation easy with more options on size and the reduction of installation costs

Low Self-Discharge With the innovative technology incorporated in the design and manufacture of these batteries, a self-discharge rate of 2% per month, or less, will be achieved at normal operating temperatures. Compare this with liquid acid technology batteries, which will self-discharge at 5% per week or greater! The AA Champion AGM batteries therefore give greater efficiency for the end user, providing such benefits as reduced generator fuel consumption, and better usage of expensive solar charging resources

Long Service Life AA Champion AGM batteries are designed and manufactured to provide the longest possible service life. In a Deep-Cycle application, the UCH2 series (2 volt cells) can charge/discharge more than 2100 times to a 50% discharge level. In float applications (such as stand-by power supplies) the NP series (6 and 12 volt) batteries will achieve 3 to 5 year service life, and the UCH2 series batteries 10 to 15 years. In typical* Remote Area Power Supply, Motorhome, and Deep-Cycle Marine applications. *The above service life expectancies are based on a 20% capacity loss and 80% capacity remaining at the end of the stated service life

Highest Efficiency AA Champion AGM batteries offer some of the very best efficiencies in the marketplace. Typically efficiencies achieved are 95% or better. The benefits to the Motorhome/Remote Area Power Supply user are distinct and economic. An efficiency of 95% means that for every 100 A/Hrs put into the batteries 95 A/Hrs can be taken out. Liquid acid technologies typically only achieve 85% efficiencies, meaning that for 100 A/Hrs put in, only 85 A/Hrs can be taken out. Economic benefits to the end-user are:

  • Reduced generator fuel usage
  • Shorter generator run-times
  • Greater efficiency of solar investments

Lowest Installation Cost As stated earlier, these batteries can be installed in places and positions not possible with liquid acid batteries. The fact they do not discharge corrosive gases means they can be placed in closer proximity to inverters (and other such sensitive equipment) without harmful effects, thus reducing battery cable lengths and lowering installation costs. In addition, the UCH2 (2 volt) series come with a high quality set of copper tinned interconnecting links

Lowest Possible Maintenance Costs These batteries are sealed and do not discharge corrosive gases and therefore do not require topping up with expensive battery water, or the laborious and somewhat dangerous procedure of hydrometer testing. The absence of corrosive gas discharge means that battery terminal fixing hardware does not corrode or require maintenance

Best Possible Warranty AA Champion AGM batteries are backed by what we believe to be the best warranty in the market. They are warranted for 5 years (NP 6 Volt and 12 Volt series) and 10 years (UCH2 - 2 Volt series) service life, the first year being at replacement value and the remaining years pro-rata. As stated above, we believe end-users in typical Morhome/Remote Power applications will achieve service lives of fifteen to twenty years for the UCH2 series,and 5 to 8 years for the NP series

Lowest Life Cycle Costs Studying the benefits of AA Champion AGM batteries will show that they provide the lowest life-cycle costs when compared with other lead acid based battery technologies. We believe that considering their longer and lower maintenance, these batteries show approximately half the cost of ownership as a similar capacity liquid acid installation.

Deep Discharge Recovery Improved design features enable the battery to provide a better recovery after repeated deep discharges. This contributes to the extended life expectancies and is important in Remote Area Power Supply applications

No Memory Effect AA Champion AGM batteries provide no memory effect after repetitious usage or recharge. This contributes to long service life and is a very important feature.
