The constantly growing amount of electric consumers in modern vehicles and special requirements such as start/stop systems and braking-energy recuperation call for top-performance batteries. The Bosch S6 battery with AGM technology delivers the required power for frequent starts and stops, and reliably supplies electronic devices during the stop phase.
AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) technology from Bosch is the leading technology on the market for the most exacting requirements. Special mats of very thin glass fibers hold all the electrolyte, allowing higher amounts of energy to pass through. This enables the Bosch S6 battery to give a top performance.
In batteries with AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) technology, special mats of very thin glass fibers lie tightly between the lead plates of the battery and all the electrolyte. The high contact pressure minimizes the loss of active material with an extremely low internal resistance. The faster reaction between the electrolyte and the plate material allows the passage of a greater quantity of energy in demanding situations.
If battery replacement is needed, it is important to install AGM batteries again in passenger cars that were fitted with this type of battery when new. Otherwise, the function and positive effects of the start/stop system would be impaired. The battery service life would also be reduced.
