Product Overview

Pack more amp-hours and cranking amps into a smaller space with a slim-line AGM battery

AGM Batteries are great in both deep cycle and starting applications. They charge more quickly than conventional batteries, have low 3% monthly self-discharge rates and are maintenance-free—no need to add water. The spill-proof, valve-regulated design eliminates acid spills and terminal corrosion. AGM batteries are safer to operate than conventional flooded batteries, as the chance of explosion or acid spray is reduced which allow them to be installed in almost any location and any position (except upside-down).

Northstar’s 480 slim-line AGM batteries offer great resistance to vibration, provide high cranking amps and are capable of cycling 900 times at 50% of their capacity. The durable heat resistant case will give you the confidence they will stand up to years of abuse in the marine environment. Because these batteries can be installed on their side, they provide way to save space and keep the center of gravity low. Threaded inserts allow low profile terminal connection or to match the terminals (not included) to the existing battery cables.
