Concorde Sun eXtender AGM Technology Adopted by U.S. Military
Concorde Sun Xtender batteries are the original AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) technology adopted by the U.S. Military and worldwide airframe manufacturers. Concorde produces very high-quality, well-regarded sealed AGM-type batteries. Their Sun Xtender series is optimized for deep-cycle photovoltaic service with a safe valve-regulated, lead-calcium, maintenance-free design. There are no exposed lead terminals on this series. A recessed copper alloy terminal with threaded insert is used to reduce the chance of a short circuit. All batteries are equipped with built-in lifting handles, unless noted otherwise.
