This model of the Exide Edge Battery provides excellent longevity for its premium build quality and technology. The company introduced smart deep cycle feature along with the AGM technology for long-term “leak free” usage.
Also, the reserve capacity will impress any outdoor enthusiast. Let us find out more features and advantages in this Exide Edge FP-AGM24DP Specs and Review.
Sturdy Built Quality Ensures Longevity
One of the major advantages we have found in this trolling battery is the excellent build quality of the body. Along with superior internal parts, the body makes sure you can use this battery under a rough condition.
Thanks to the manufacturer for designing the Exide Edge FP-AGM24DP with a tall body. You can move it at some exalted height very easily. This battery is made to use roughly. Like the model VMAX MR127, the sturdy built quality has improved durability for long-term uses.
You will find the body of this battery sturdy enough to protect the inner mechanism. Also, the industrial plastic made body is strong enough to store any kind of place you want. It can endure immense vibration and pressure. So, using it for a trolling motor in a fishing boat can be a good choice.
Smart Technology Used in Exide Edge FP-AGM24DP
As we have discussed in our earlier review, the Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) technology comes with very high absorbing factor and high porosity. So this technology doesn’t let the battery die during heavy and normal usage.
Also, the AGM technology also enables the battery to absorb vibration and shocks. The jelly-like acid inside the cells makes sure of this endurance. This battery is so consistent in delivering stable power for a longer period of time.
Moreover, the Exide FP-AGM24DP is unified with electrolyte suspension mechanism provides by AGM. This just doesn’t prevent spilling the electrolyte and distributes it equally over the grids, but also keeps the grids perfectly in right places. So, the maintenance will be really easy and hassle-free.
Exide Edge FP-agm24dp Specs on Power
In my first days of fishing on the boat, my number two biggest fear was draining of power. Not to mention, the first one was rough weather. Well, draining of trolling motor battery power still is an important issue on the long-term boat fishing. Taking a note on this issue, the company of Exide Edge AGM battery provides improved power and charging facility.
This battery is designed to frequently discharging without making any impact on battery’s maximum power. It’s because the AGM technology allows the battery to get a great result when a deep cycle is happening. This battery is so consistent in delivering stable power for a longer period of time that it easily beat the consistency of delivering the power of other traditional batteries or other similar AGM technology based batteries.
Moreover, I find the battery with having the best grids in the market, which grants such a great performance. So, normally the battery provides better power in trolling the boat. Also, It can provide constant power for a long time when you are using this battery for motor boats. You can really comment the capability of the deep cycle on this battery.
Great Cranking Current Supply and Reserve Capacity
In the Exide AGM marine battery review, I must share my views on the cranking current supply and power reserve capacity of this battery. Exide Edge FP-AGM24DP battery can provide 775A cranking current that is very much enough for cranking a gigantic motor when the temperature is absolute zero. This feature makes it easier to be a better exide edge AGM car battery along with trolling motor battery.
Also, this exide edge AGM flat plate dual purpose marine battery provides continuous charge without any problem. This feature makes this battery one of the best of its kind. This battery can reserve up to 25A for almost two and a half hour, which means you can be fishing for more than an hour.
Vent Mechanism and Pressure Valve
This battery includes an exclusive vent system, which grants the water of the battery cell to reassess and lower evaporation. This mechanism doesn’t let the cells to dry. The pressure valves prevent vapor transfer between cells. This restriction keeps constant water pressure for each cell.
Also, this excellent trolling motor battery is very easy to install in a boat. The AGM technology makes sure, you can put the battery in any direction, making it super easy to mount. Also, you will have proper instruction on the website.
Charging and Durability
This battery takes way short time to charge than other traditional batteries. It has a massive acid container for extra power. The plate is a lead alloy made, which helps the battery to attain deficient internal resistances. So, in such weight makes this battery unique from other available batteries. The battery can be charged very quickly without overheating the battery because of the deficient internal resistance. You are should use the recommended charger as instructed in the manual.
Exide Edge FP-AGM23DP battery protects from damaging its cells using a technology named Graphite Additive, which also maximizes the life of the battery. Only Exide batteries have this technology in them.
This battery came in to serve you long. The battery durability is great. With proper usage, this battery can serve you over 5 years. You may need to change the acid in the meantime to maintain the battery performance but when you feel it is needed.
