Batteries might be overlooked as performance upgrades, but those in the know often choose Absorbent Glass Mat-based batteries because they offer powerful starting performance combined with flexible mounting possibilities and race-ready durability.
If you aren’t familiar, these sealed batteries are resistant to vibrations and can be mounted in any orientation, as they won’t leak. There are some notable options on the market already, but at an industry trade show earlier this year there was talk that Sears’ Diehard brand might be venturing into the AGM game.
You have to watch out when you start this thing, the battery has enough power to flip the car! — Kenny Brown, Kenny Brown Performance
“You have to watch out when you start this thing, the battery has enough power to flip the car!” Kenny Brown, of Kenny Brown Performance, enthused.
We expect to see Diehard’s Pure Lead AGM battery to hit the market later this year in time to celebrate the brand’s 50th anniversary. Thus far there is no concrete info about the unit, but it should show up on the official site here when it is available.
