I will if my car is repaired. A tractor trailer attempted to run over me the other evening coming home from work! Since the estimate before disassembly is around $10k and I have my attorney working on a diminished value claim it may wind up being totaled.

Wet cell, not AGM.

Some also say the Charger Pursuit with the H8 battery which is a little bigger than our H7 is also AGM but haven't seen a pic of that battery.

yeah, I was just posting for reference that I don’t have what this guy is claiming.

Well I had to go look. My '19 Challenger R/T Shaker 5.7/6 speed has the factory lead acid type battery.

2019 Redeye Widebody. Wet battery. I would have thought they would have used an AGM in these cars. Surprised.

I feel like having a way to identify one’s battery type based merely on visual inspection would be prudent here...

1) Check for the words “wet”, “wet cell”, or “Lead” on your battery’s label. These words on the label would indicate the battery is of the flooded (non-AGM) type. If AGM is found on the label, it’s an AGM type battery obviously.

2) Pick it up and spin it around back and forth. Heavy sloshing noises from the Inside indicates it is likely a wet cell/flooded type battery.

There are probably other methods, but those should cover most scenarios.
