Re: slow starting, battery recommendations - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
"The leading advantages of AGM are a charge that is up to five times faster than the flooded version, and the ability to deep cycle. AGM offers a depth-of-discharge of 80 percent; the flooded, on the other hand, is specified at 50 percent DoD to attain the same cycle life. The negatives are slightly lower specific energy and higher manufacturing costs than the flooded. "
AGM batteries are not "marine batteries", which are designed for deep cycling. Going to 100% discharged probably ruined your battery.
