GOLD (PROFESSIONAL VOYAGER) AGM 18 MONTH BATTERY
FEATURES & BENEFITS
- Maintenance-free Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) technology - no water required, no spills, no leaks, and no maintenance
- AGM technology for our best deep cycle performance
- Leak-proof pressurized valve system is engineered with safety and longevity in mind. Prevents dry-out and acid damage to the terminals
- High density plate oxide provides for maximum power-per-pound and dependable ‘high cycling’ service
- Heavy top Lead and large through-partition connections, maximizes power output; optimizes durability, vibration resistance and auto battery life
- Some ACDelco Gold parts may have formerly appeared as ACDelco Professional
ACDelco Gold (Professional Voyager), premium aftermarket AGM 18 Month batteries have high cycling capabilities and are remarkably charge-receptive. The Absorbed Glass Mat design is 100% leak and spill proof because the Electrolyte is permanently held in the glass mat separator instead of free flowing within each cell. Oxygen recombination reduces water loss and reassures maintenance-free performance. Engineered with heavier, thicker plates ACDelco Gold (Professional Voyager) AGM 18 Month batteries can withstand the potential damage of continual deep discharging and recharging. Both positive and negative grids are built with lead-calcium alloy to maximize corrosion resistance, optimize cycle life and reduce water consumption for battery durability. ACDelco Gold (Professional Voyager) AGM 18 Month batteries also include quick-glance charge monitoring. These premium aftermarket AGM batteries are manufactured to meet your expectations for fit, form, and function. Some ACDelco Gold parts may have formerly appeared as ACDelco Professional.
The ACDelco Gold (Professional Voyager) AGM 18 Month Batteries have a limited 18-month free replacement warranty to the original purchaser. Replacement Limited Warranty offers replacement of battery at no cost to the original purchaser. Labor for removal or installation not included. Other limitations apply.
WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER:
- Discharged batteries that can be recharged and returned to service.
- Cost of recharging or for use of rental batteries or vehicles.
- Labor cost for battery removal and installation.
- Batteries damaged due to charging system failure, negligence, abuse, accident, improper installation, or freezing.
- Loss of time, inconvenience, loss of vehicle use, or incidental consequential damages.
Can I determine what the Hours of Usable Power (H.U.P.) is for this battery?
Yes. By determining the ampere draw of each for the accessories in use, Hours of Usable Power (H.U.P.) can be determined. The following information will give the data necessary to be a specialist when talking "marine" and continuous use. Over time H.U.P. will decrease as the battery ages, H.U.P. will also be reduced if the battery does not start at 100% charge. With the ACDelco built in Hydrometer, a user can see the state-of-charge (SOC) but still cannot plan for the hours of useable power.
Can I tell how many Marine Cranking Amps this battery has?
Yes. MCA refers to Marine Cranking Amps, their values are on the top label of the ACDelco Voyager and Voyager II Batteries. MCA equals CA.
Does this RV and marine battery perform well in cold weather?
ACDelco supplies Cold Cranking Amp (CCA) information on the label of the battery. This information is valuable if the use is for something other than marine cranking applications.
Can I store this RV and marine battery without it losing its charge?
This is dependent on ambient temperature. Regardless, ACDelco recommends that a battery’s Open Circuit Voltage (OCV) be checked every 3 months. If the Open Circuit Voltage has fallen to 12.4 volts, ACDelco recommends that the battery be fully recharged. If the battery is fully charged it can easily be stored at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
Are a Maintenance-Free Battery and a Filler Cap Battery the same type of battery?
No. A filler cap battery requires the addition of water due to the material Antimony being added to the battery grids. Antimony is used to improve recharging times by making the battery more charge receptive. This additive can make the battery gas more than a Calcium (maintenance-free) grid and as a result, water may have to be added to a filler cap battery.
Can I use the "Green Eye" hydrometer to determine the batteries State-of-Charge?
Yes, the Hydrometer (EYE, Green Eye) gives the State-of-Charge (SOC) on one cell and if the eye is ‘Green’ this means that the battery State-of-Charge should be greater than 65%. If the eye is ‘black’ the battery requires recharging. IF THE EYE IS CLEAR, THE ACID LEVEL IS LOW AND THE BATTERY MUST BE REPLACED IMMEDIATELY DO NOT RECHARGE!
Is there a difference between Marine Cranking Amps (MCA) and Cold Cranking Amps (CCA)?
Yes, the test for Marine Cranking Amps is done at 32 degrees Fahrenheit and the test for Cold Cranking Amps is done at 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
