More cars are moving to a higher performance batter such as the AGM battery. The Duracell® AGM Automotive Battery – Group Size 48 is made to handle extreme weather like no ordinary battery can. Use it in SUVs, LTVs, APVs, or any car that requires an AGM battery.
What Is an AGM Battery?
Absorbed glass mat, or AGM, battery design allows the electrolyte to wick between the battery plates. There is only enough electrolyte liquid in the battery to keep the glass mat moist. If for some reason the battery cracks, there is not enough liquid to leak out of the casing.

The Duracell battery is a fully rechargeable battery. Before recharging, pay attention to the charger type you need to use. Different battery sizes require different chargers. Never leave the battery connected to the vehicle when charging. It is best to remove the AGM battery entirely from the car before joining to the charger. Charge time varies per charger so check the manufacturer's instructions. You do not want to overcharge the battery. Only charge in a well-ventilated area.
