The Different Types of Powersport Batteries
So it’s that time again, time to replace your battery in your power sports vehicle… but what kind should you choose? Well, that is kind of your call. However, understanding the difference in the different batteries will help you choose the most fitting to your needs. Keep reading to find out more about the different types of power sport batteries we offer!
What is a Sealed Lead Acid battery? There are different types of SLA batteries, however, the perks of this design are that the batteries are sealed making them virtually maintenance-free, you avoid the risk of leaks, and they have a low self-discharge rate.
AGM- Absorbent Glass Mat
Absorbent Glass Mat batteries. We offer a huge selection of sealed AGM batteries and they tend to be a customer favorite. These batteries are constructed with a special glass mat to keep the electrolytes between the lead plates. This allows for a lower resistance within the battery, which then provides a higher discharge. These batteries are close to maintenance-free with them being factory sealed. The one downside to these AGM batteries is they are not able to cycle as many times as a Gel battery can.
Gel batteries also known as gelled electrolyte or gel cell batteries use a silica type gel to suspend the electrolyte. These batteries can cycle more than an AGM battery, however, they do have a lower discharge (less power). Gel batteries also tend to perform slightly better in higher surrounding temperatures.
Conventional batteries have flooded electrolytes. These batteries typically come dry, with a bottle of acid on the side that you use to fill your battery. These batteries tend to be cheaper, however, that does come to the price of more maintenance. These batteries need to be carefully maintained. You will have to add distilled water occasionally to prevent the battery from sulfating. Because the water evaporates in this battery, you have to check the fluid level on a regular basis for this kind of battery. Conventional batteries also tend to discharge more rapidly than AGM, as well as can leak if not mounted upright properly.

Batteries that sit unused for long periods of time (3-4 weeks+) can end up with sulfation built up on the battery plates. Once this happens, they'll begin to experience a downturn in performance and run time. They can also become difficult and even impossible to charge. However, this can all be prevented from happening.
