Gel+easier than AGM) and lithium(easiest) are shippable too.
All four battery types need haz mat markings. Lead you pay thru the nose with FedEx. Lithium if need be can go air. Other three can't.

At least per MY options at work!

Another AGM advantage.... can be easily shipped to you.


Not really an advantage when traditional sealed lead-acid batteries are available in pretty much every city, village or town in the country...so they don't need to be shipped.

Last fall buying a battery for my 1500, the lead bats had a upwards of double warranty lifetime, more cranking amps, both maintenance free......no AGM s in stock. Simple choice in my book. I was thinking about AGMs for some of the reasons I mentioned

Could have had it shipped

No I could NOT have it shipped. As not only was parts place I was at out, disributo and manufacture was out.
If your sitting on the side of the road, in my driveway with a dead battery, are you willing to wait upwards of 7 typical,nim on 2 weeks waiting for FedEx to deliver me a non hazmat item from across the country.....

Shipping right now for many items is not what it was 18-24 months ago.

Explain the advantage of waiting a few days and paying for shipping vs having the battery in hand within 15min.
