PVX-1040T Sun Xtender, sealed AGM deep cycle battery,12V, 120Ah,OLD: PVX12100T
Concorde AGM batteries are not a
gelled electrolyte. It is considered a "Recombinant Gas Absorbed
Electrolyte" battery. Loss of charge due to self-discharge is 3 to 10 times
better than with conventional gelled, and 5 to 50 times less than with flooded
batteries. The gasses recombine almost 100% within the battery, reducing
Hydrogen emissions to a level far below most battery types, and less than half
the lower explosive limit for Hydrogen. In addition, they do not have the
charge and discharge current limitations that most gelled batteries have. The
Concorde is highly recommended by Trace Engineering. By comparison, Gel Cell
batteries can be effectively ruined with just one sustained overcharge.
The AGM battery has an extremely low internal
electrical resistance. This, combined with faster acid migration, allows the AGM
batteries to deliver and absorb higher rates of amperage than any other sealed
batteries during discharging and charging. In addition, AGM technology batteries
can be charged at normal flooded lead-acid regulated charging voltages,
therefore, it is not necessary to recalibrate charging systems or purchase
special chargers. Concorde AGM batteries can be bulk charged at extremely
high rates without damage - up to 10 times as fast as gelled cells, and 5 times
as fast as flooded batteries.
Concorde AGM battery technology has
continued to develop and offer improvements over other sealed battery
technologies. AGM technology has become the next step in the evolution of both
starting and deep cycle sealed batteries for marine, RV, and aviation
applications. These are the same type of batteries that the Navy and Air Force
used in Desert Storm in their F-18 and F118B "stealth", and in the
Marine Corps "HumVees".. This "next generation" technology
delivers increased safety, performance, and service life over all other existing
sealed battery types, including gel technology. All Concorde AGM batteries carry
a one-year full warranty - most gelled cells carry only a 90-day warranty.
AGM batteries such as Concorde have much better
resistance to vibration and shock due to their construction than most flooded
batteries. The plates are packed in with the glass mat, reducing plate movement
and vibration to nearly nothing. In addition, because the glass mats are not
totally saturated and the liquid does not expand to cause plate and case damage,
AGM batteries can withstand freezing.
Concorde AGM batteries meet MIL-SPEC
B8565J and FAR 23.1353, 25.1353(c), 27.1353, 29.1353(3), 25.853(a). All Concorde
AGM batteries are shippable without restriction by any means of transportation,
including air. Hazardous labeling is not required.
In AGM sealed batteries, the acid is absorbed
between the plates and immobilized by a very fine fiberglass mat. No silica gel
is necessary. This glass mat absorbs and immobilizes the acid while still
keeping the acid available to the plates. This allows a fast reaction between
acid and plate material. Even if the battery is broken, no electrolyte will be
