AGM start stop battery: Powering tomorrow’s vehicles


Why AGM start stop battery

Historically, the main job of an automotive battery is simple: to start the car and – in the event of an alternator failure – safely stop the car. Today, the automotive battery is required to do much more. The number of electrical equipment in vehicles has tripled in the past 10 years and is expected to double in the next five years. At the same time, the power consumed by these devices has doubled in the past 10 years and is expected to double in the next five years. From powering advanced safety functions such as pedestrian detection systems to electronic loads that charge multiple devices simultaneously, batteries are playing an increasingly important role. That is why we have AGM start stop battery in the market nowadays.

As consumers’ demand for comfortable, safe and convenient vehicle functions continues to grow, they may not consider how to power these functions. Fortunately, Spaceflight Power is thinking about it, as are OEMs and aftermarket customers who want to keep vehicles running efficiently and sustainably and satisfy consumers.

AGM start stop battery technology:

At Spaceflight Power, we are advancing battery technology to meet the needs of power-hungry vehicles that have greater connectivity, more autonomous driving functions, and more and more electrification. This includes start-stop applications, which can reduce carbon dioxide emissions, but require higher electrical and cycle requirements for batteries.

For example, our absorbent glass mat (AGM) batteries are precision-engineered to meet the specific needs of OEMs and aftermarket customers, and they perform well in situations where traditional or enhanced flooded batteries may not be available. Market researchers say battery failure is now the third most commonly reported vehicle problem—and the top 20 models with highest battery replacement rates all used a flooded battery. Our newest offerings take the AGM lead- acid battery to new levels, these AGM batteries handle the higher number of charge cycles in a start-stop application while still delivering long life and eliminating the potential for acid leakage, ensuring consumer safety and satisfaction.


Today, almost all vehicles are equipped with lead-acid batteries. More and more have multiple lead-acid batteries as vehicles evolve from the standard combustion engine, through start-stop, hybrid and electric vehicles. In every instance, AGM batteries can provide the required power and performance to support the progress and development of tomorrow’s vehicles.
