Why the GPL 27T Lifeline AGM Battery is Perfect for Marine Use

GPL 27T Lifeline AGM Battery

The GPL 27T Lifeline AGM battery is one of the most popular batteries that we keep in stock here at SEP. We want to take the time to tell you why this battery is going to be so great for marine usage.

Vibration Resistant GPL 27T Lifeline AGM battery

When you are on a boat, it is likely that it is going to rock about a lot. With older battery technology, when a battery rocked about, things would become loose inside. The electrolyte would lose contact with the battery plates. This means that the battery would stop working as effectively. That is not an issue you will need to worry about with the AGM battery. It is built to withstand an intense amount of vibration. Shake this battery up as much as you like, there is no chance it will stop working.

Sealed Unit

There are several benefits to the GPL 27T being a completely sealed unit. This includes:

  • Since this battery is sealed, you will be able to mount it in any position that you want. Obviously, when you are on a boat it is likely that you are not going to have a lot of space to play about with. Therefore, you need to make sure that the battery can deal with that. This one can.
  • This battery does not leak. This means none of those awful spills to clear up.
  • You are not going to need to constantly refill the battery. Basically, these batteries will require a minimum amount of maintenance.
  • The fact that these batteries are sealed means that there is nothing that will be able to get inside. One of the biggest killers of ‘old’ batteries is water being able to get inside which, of course, will corrode the plates. This problem is going to be doubly worse if you are sailing on saltwater.

Corrosion-Resistant Terminals

The battery terminals are corrosion resistant. This means that even when they are exposed to the elements, you can be sure that they will continue to perform for you. You will need to give them a clean every now and then, but even then that will just be every few months and it will barely require much in the way of effort.

Low Self-Discharge Rate

These batteries have a low self-discharge rate. Chances are that you are not going to be using your battery all the time. It will be in storage. You want to know that it is going to perform for you even when you pull it out of storage. This one will. It loses just 2% of its charge every month. This is comparison to other batteries on the market which have a 10% discharge rate per month.
