Car Battery Chemistries at Batteries Plus

A battery's chemistry plays a large role in gauging its performance. Batteries Plus offers several different auto battery chemistries, including flooded, AGM (short for Absorbed Glass Mat) and Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) AGM. Here is a breakdown of how these chemistries compare:

Flooded

  • Lowest Upfront Cost
  • Shorter Lifespan - will not last as long as an AGM or TPPL AGM battery
  • Maintenance Required - may require you to periodically top off the electrolyte inside with distilled water; check if your battery requires this before attempting
  • Features lower CCAs
  • Not the best option for cars with a lot of electronic accessories
  • Tend to come with a shorter warranty period

AGM

  • Higher Upfront Cost - due to their longer lifespans, you will probably save money in the long run
  • Longer Lifespan - lasts roughly 2X as long as a flooded battery
  • Maintenance Free - battery doesn't need to be "watered"
  • Completely sealed & spill-proof
  • Has higher CCAs than flooded batteries
  • Perfect for vehicles with a lot of electronic accessories
  • Higher Voltage Output - provides more energy than flooded batteries for more reliable vehicle starting
  • Faster Charging - recharges faster than a flooded battery
  • Lower Self-Discharge Rates - holds its charge longer in storage than a flooded battery
  • More Resistant to Vibrations and Extreme Heat & Cold
  • Tend to come with a longer warranty period
  • Note: If your car currently has an AGM battery, you should not downgrade to a flooded battery.

Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) AGM

  • Highest upfront cost - due to their much longer lifespans, you will probably save money in the long run
  • Longest Lifespan - will last roughly 3X longer than flooded batteries
  • Maintenance Free - battery doesn't need to be "watered"
  • Completely sealed & spill-proof
  • Features some of the highest CCAs available
  • Perfect for vehicles with a lot of electronic accessories
  • Higher Voltage Output - provides more energy than flooded & AGM batteries for more reliable vehicle starting
  • Faster Charging - recharges faster than a flooded or regular AGM battery
  • Lower Self-Discharge Rates - holds its charge longer in storage than a flooded battery
  • Provides the greatest performance in extreme weather conditions
  • Features the longest warranties on the market
  • Note: If your car currently has an AGM battery, you should not downgrade to a flooded battery.
