    Are any of the stock batteries AGM?

    Does anyone know if the stock Mopar batteries are AGM? I'm putting mine on a tender while it's in storage and it has an AGM mode. The battery I have is a BB0H7730AB. I can't find anything online about it being an AGM so I'm guessing it's not but I figured I'd ask!

    It is not an AGM battery. There's a vent line that hooks to it to let the vapors out of the cars.

    Exclamation

    The Police cars use a larger CCA battery which is an AGM Battery. Otherwise, they have a conventional battery. And whether it has an AGM Battery or not, an LX battery has a vent tube.

    AGM batteries for our cars also have vent tubes. That is not a determining factor.

    I bought a replacement AGM battery from Autozone after my original battery died, it does not have vent a tube.

    That's a little concerning. Are you 100% sure there's not a hole anywhere on the top edge of the casing where a vent nipple and hose could be installed? AGM batteries can vent, generally not expected unless you get into an overcharge situation, but in the event of that I would not want it venting into the trunk compartment.

    Any battery inside car has a vent to outside, my AGHM from Autozone had the port for vent. It's not a nipple sticking out, but a plug you pull out and insert the vent hose.

    My AGM from Autozone also had a vent tube. If you don't have one, then you were given the wrong battery for your car.

    There is no provision to install the factory vent tube, I am not concerned with overcharging as I do not drive the car regularly, I am more concerned with the lack of discharge charge cycles, not so much now that I have a battery tender with an AGM setting. This Autozone AGM battery is also 880 CCA, where the stock Lead Acid battery is only 770 CCA.

    It doesnt not need to be "vehicle specific" battery. Just needs to be the same group size and amp rating you want. That battery above is group 94r. Google that and find the battery you want.
