Replace your flooded batteries with Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries. They’re more rugged, accept higher charging current, are sealed, safer and submersible.
AGM Batteries are great in both deep cycle and starting applications. They charge more quickly than conventional batteries and have low 3% monthly self-discharge rates. 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).
