Please check compatibility particularly dimensions with your vehicle before purchase.
You automatically receive two years warranty from date of delivery.
Replacement only, no refunds or credit on Vertex batteries.
Only ever use a charger suitable for AGM batteries. We advise charging for at least three to six hours before use.
Do not leave your AGM battery on trickle charge all the time, take it off now and again and let the battery run down a bit otherwise it will ruin the battery and shorten it's life.
Smart chargers or 3 stage chargers from brands including CTEK, Motobatt, OptiMate, Oxford etc. are required for use on all AGM or GEL batteries. These modern chargers are capable of varying the current to prevent damage from over charging and will prolong the battery's life. Sealed Valve Regulated batteries (AGM and Gel) may be damaged or dried out and ruined if they are overcharged. The damage that can be caused by improper charging becomes permanent and gets worse over time. The correct way to charge or maintain AGM batteries is with a smart charger, and with its exclusive 9 step algorithm technology one of our AGM compatible chargers is the perfect solution to keep your battery in tip top condition.
Vertex AGM batteries have a very low internal resistance, are capable to deliver high currents on demand and offer up to twice as long service life, even when deep-cycled. Vertex batteries are maintenance free, provide good electrical reliability, vibration resistant and lighter than the conventional lead-acid type. They stand up well to low temperatures and have a low self-discharge. Charge that is up to five times faster than the conventional version.
Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) refers to a specific type of SLA / VRLA (Sealed Lead Acid or Valve Regulated Lead Acid) where the electrolyte is absorbed into separators between the plates consisting of sponge like glass mat fibres. These glass mat fibres do not absorb the electrolyte, but simply hold the electrolyte preventing it from spilling when the battery is tipped over.
Vertex AGM is the preferred battery for high powered motorcycles and other power sport vehicles. Being fully sealed, AGM reduces acid spilling in an accident, lowers the weight for the same performance and allows installation at odd angles. Higher cranking power and longer service life compared to conventional batteries and spill-proof which enables shipment without hazardous material restrictions.
Why choose a Vertex AGM battery ?
- Higher cranking CCA and AH power
- Maintenance free
- High specific power, low internal resistance, responsive to load
- Ideal for vehicles equipped with lots of electronics
- No spillage allows installation at odd angles
- Up to 5 times faster charge time than with conventional technology
- Better cycle life than with conventional systems
- Vibration resistance due to glass mat fibre construction
- Stands up well to cold temperature without freezing
- Less prone to sulphating if not regularly topping charge
- Less concern about ventilation when charging
- Has less electrolyte and lead than the conventional version
- Slower discharge in storage
- Superior construction
- Made in China, same as the well known Yuasa and Motobatt batteries
