A Gel Battery is similar in theory to an AGM style battery; the electrolyte is suspended, but technically different than an AGM battery. An AGM battery is comparable in function to a wet cell battery. Electrolyte in a GEL cell battery has a silica additive that causes it to stiffen. The recharge voltages on this type of cell are lower than other styles of lead acid battery. They are also the most sensitive in terms of adverse reactions to over charging. If an incorrect battery charger is used on a Gel Battery your Battery will not perform to its true capability and its life will certainly be shortened.
