Default Re: Deka Batteries?

To whom it may concern: I am no expert on batteries but.....

"Regular" deep cycle's are called flooded lead acid. They make up the vast majority of all batteries that we'd use. The liquid is loose and vents easily. Needs regular checking etc... AGM batteries used soaked fiberglass mat around the plates which while they do technically have vents, the liquid remains virtually contained within the case. AGM batteries can even be mounted on their side or in whatever orientation. AGM is pretty much the latest advancement of this type of battery.

I did notice that the Deka had a 20ah rating of 155 vs the T1275 Trojan's 20ah rating of 150 so they have comparable numbers actually.
