Discover® Deep Cycle AGM Battery

A Discover® Deep Cycle Advanced AGM battery is a lead-acid electric storage battery that:

  • Is a Discover® Non-Hazardous battery
  • Is the QUALITY choice by leading Original Equipment Manufacturers and integrators
  • Is Classified as “NON-SPILLABLE BATTERY” Not restricted for Air (IATA/ICAO) Provision 67, Surface (DOT-CFR-HMR49) or Water (Non-hazardous per IMDG amendment 27) transportation.
  • Has thick flat plates
  • Can be discharged and charged many times beyond 30%~50%
  • Performs well in cyclic, starting or combination cyclic starting applications
  • Is acid starved and uses ultra pure refined electrolyte
  • Uses a recombination reaction to prevent the escape of hydrogen and oxygen gases
  • Has a higher active material to acid ratio than standard SVR types
  • Uses Micro fibrous silicate glass mat acid absorption
  • Is sealed using special pressure valves and should never is opened. (warranty is void if opened)
  • Typically uses Calcium/Calcium metal alloys
  • Is maintenance-free with proper change management
  • Is produced in certified ISO, QS and TUV facilities
  • Is an Underwriters Laboratories (UL) recognized component
  • Have multiple advanced terminal design options
  • Incorporates proprietary manufacturing techniques, additives and processes

Note: life cycles vary by battery voltage, capacity, size and operating temperatures.
