In-depth Review Of VMAX MR137-120 Battery
This Vmax battery has one of the solid bodies in the market. They have used better materials than traditional batteries. The body is made of industrial-grade plastic, which is shockproof and acid-proof. You can install the battery in MinniKota power kit to further protect it from jerks and rough use.
The battery is integrated with the electrolyte suspension system. It contains AGM, which stands for absorbed glass matt, having very high porosity and absorbing factor. As a result, the electrolyte is uniformly distributed and absorbed by it, making it deliver constant power throughout the operation. No silica gels and other absorbers are used. Tin alloy is used for making the grids of the battery. This provides good conduction and increases the life of the group 31 AGM deep cycle marine battery. Grid prevents the hysteric effect caused by repeated discharging and charging of the battery.
It can repeatedly be discharged and charged, without having an impact on the maximum power of the battery. This is due to the AGM technology used, it gives extremely good results on a deep cycle recharge. The battery when used for motorboats, it can deliver non-stop, constant power. Deep cycle capability of this battery is really commendable.
This group 31 deep cycle marine battery can get charged twice fast as much as traditional batteries. It depends upon the charger initially, but you will find that with the same charger, this battery takes less time, around 40% less than any other battery on the board.
