Victron 12V/170Ah AGM Super Cycle Battery with M8 threaded terminals.
A new AGM battery: the AGM Super Cycle battery
A truly innovative battery
The AGM Super Cycle batteries are the result of recent battery electrochemistry developments. The paste of the positive plates is less sensitive to softening, even in case of repeated 100% discharge of the battery, and new additives to the electrolyte reduce sulfation in case of deep discharge.
Exceptional 100% depth of discharge (DoD) performance
Tests have shown that the Super Cycle battery does withstand at least three hundred 100% DoD cycles.
The tests consist of a daily discharge to 10,8V with I = 0,2C₂₀, followed by approximately two hours rest in discharged condition and then a recharge with I = 0,2C₂₀.
The two hours rest period in discharged condition will damage most batteries within 100 cycles, but not the Super Cycle battery.
We recommend the Super Cycle battery for applications where an occasional discharge to 100% DoD, or frequent discharge to 60-80% DoD is expected.
Smaller and lighter
An additional advantage of the new chemistry is a slightly smaller size and less weight compared to standard deep cycle AGM batteries.
Low internal resistance
The internal resistance is also slightly lower compared to Victron and other manufacturers standard deep cycle AGM batteries.
Like any battery the further discharged and time between recharging back to full will highly affect battery life. The major benefit with the Super Cycle battery range allows you extend beyond the capabilities of a standard AGM battery when depth of discharge falls over the 50% and would start ending a standard AGM battery lifespan dramatically.
≥ 300 cycles @ 100% DoD (discharge to 10,8V with I = 0,2C₂₀, followed by approximately two hours rest in discharged condition, and then a recharge with I = 0,2C₂₀)
≥ 700 cycles @ 60% DoD (discharge during three hours with I = 0,2C₂₀, immediately followed by recharge at I = 0,2C₂₀)
≥ 1000 cycles @ 40% DoD (discharge during two hours with I = 0,2C₂₀, immediately followed by recharge at I = 0,2C₂₀)
