Victron 12V 110 AGM Deep Cycle Battery.
AGM stands for Absorbent Glass Mat. In these batteries the electrolyte is absorbed into a glass-fibre mat between the plates by
capillary action. As explained in our book ‘Energy Unlimited’, AGM batteries are more suitable for short-time delivery of very high
currents (engine starting) than gel batteries.
Because of the use of lead calcium grids and high purity materials, Victron VRLA batteries can be stored during long periods of
time without recharge. The rate of self-discharge is less than 2% per month at 20°C. The self-discharge doubles for every increase
in temperature by 10°C.
Victron VRLA batteries can therefore be stored for up to a year without recharging, if kept under cool conditions.
Battery Safe Mode
In order to prevent excessive gassing, Victron has invented the ‘Battery Safe Mode’. The Battery Safe Mode will limit
the rate of voltage increase once the gassing voltage has been reached. Research has shown that this will reduce
internal gassing to a safe level.
Variable absorption time
Based on the duration of the bulk stage, the charger calculates how long the absorption time should be in order to
fully charge the battery. If the bulk time is short, this means the battery was already charged and the resulting
absorption time will also be short, whereas a longer bulk time will also result in a longer absorption time.
After completion of the absorption period the battery should be fully charged, and the voltage is lowered to the float
or standby level. If no discharge occurs during the next 24 hours, the voltage is reduced even further and the battery
goes into storage mode. The lower storage voltage reduces corrosion of the positive plates.
Once every week the charge voltage is increased to the absorption level for a short period to compensate for selfdischarge
(Battery Refresh mode).
