OK, so...
I think the letters AGM stand for Absorbed Glass Mat-
That still doesn't make me understand what AGM is...
No water? Hence the designation dry cell battery?
Where is electrolyte stored? On the Absorbed Glass Mat?
My regular ole lead acid battery in my 2007 Toyota is the one that came with it when it was built...
I have heard that AGM batteries are better for a big powerful custom car sound system. Maybe they provide more constant voltage? Maybe they stand up to constant discharging and recharging better?
It's kinda like synthetic oil- I've lived without it all these years...

This forum is full of people's opinions.....that's fine. But it's never acceptable to be rude and or condescending.

Not my intention at all.
Just stating my curiosities and hoping someone can answer my questions.
The primary reason I have ever considered an AGM or dry cell battery is for high powered car stereo systems. I still don't understand the technology and I have still never owned a dry cell battery.
Quite honestly, when it is time for a new battery, I find is is easier to come up with $100 or less for an ordinary lead acid battery than $170 or more for a dry cell. If anyone could convince me or teach me why AGM batteries are really better...
If anyone could make me understand the technology...
If anything, I was attempting to be silly.
Rude? Condescending? Not at all my intention- I just learned today that AGM stood for Absorbed Glass Mat- I don't a bit more understand it now than before I knew what it stood for...

Well, for one, I've never checked water levels in mine. They're sealed. With a good converter to charge and maintain them, it's plug them in and forget about them for the next 5 years or whatever. To me it's worth the extra money to reduce regular maintenance requirements and simply not have to worry about the batteries at all.
