    Default AGM Battery

    AGM-Absorbed Glass Mat battery, who uses this battery for your boat? I bought a DieHard Platinum Marine battery from Sears in 2008 and its still going strong. Its used as the house battery for engine starting. When I hit the 10yr time frame I was starting to wonder when this battery was going to see it's demise but it just keeps going. I also use a regular lead acid deep cycle for my accessories which needs to be replaced in 3-5yr time frame. The AGM cost is higher than the the regular lead acid acid but by the time a purchase of 2 lead acids could pay for 1 AGM. AGM is considered a lead acid style in size but doesn't require lead acid to maintain. As soon as my lead acid battery starts going down hill I will replace it with another AGM. I'm also going to start replacing my auto batteries with AGM.
