I have read conflicting advice about discharging AGMs beyond 50%. Do you have a reference for your claim that AGMs can be safely discharged beyond 50%? On a related point, some say that AGMs don't sulfate when left discharged. Some say that they sulfate just like FLAs.


Besides cost, the main advantage to flooded cell golf cart batteries is that you can check their specific gravity to know their real state of charge.
