This is the best battery I have ever had

May 03, 2014
Because of the cost, I put off the purchase of this battery as long as possable. Nursing the old battery along as long as I could. I was previously purchasing the R59 replacments from New Castel, until they went out of business. I was sad to see them go, because of the pricing. I think the last one was only $135.00. But I have to tell you, this new glass mat battery (AGM) blows that old battery out of the water. I had forgotten how fast my 427 engine was supposed to crank over. I was almost ready to replace my fuel pump. I had to keep priming the carberator to get the car to start, after it would sit for a few days. The problem was the car was cranking to slow.I have had my car for a long time,and I can't remember having this powerfull of a battery in it ever. I would highly recommend this battery. It's a perfect original match to the R59, and is very powerfull. I just hope it lasts a long time so I get my money out of it.

what is inside of the battery?


October 03, 2011
A newer type of sealed battery uses "Absorbed Glass Mats", or AGM between the plates. This is a very fine fiber Boron-Silicate glass mat. These type of batteries have all the advantages of gelled, but can take much more abuse. These are also called "starved electrolyte", as the mat is about 95% saturated rather than fully soaked. That also means that they will not leak acid even if broken.
