Default Re: Charging a 6V Optima battery

Fellas, it's just not worth getting into an argument over. Our batteries are AGM (absorbed glass mat) lead-acid batteries. They can be treated and charged just like a regular flooded lead-acid battery in most situations. Where we see most folks run into issues is when they either confuse them with gel batteries or use "gel" or "Gel/AGM" charger settings, which may not fully-charge non-gel batteries and could damage them over time. It is frustrating to see so many chargers with gel or the confusing "gel/AGM" settings, when it seems like the vast majority of chargers are being used in automotive applications and I have yet to see a gel battery in any car.
