If you’re buying a replacement battery, you probably encountered the mentioning of “factory activated” that provoked questions. What does it mean once activated and will it have any positive or negative consequences if you buy it that way? Read carefully as we are about to answer this question.
When you see the term “factory activated“, it usually means the battery is Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM), which became popular in the 80’s. The AGM battery is still preferred due to the weight which made it enticing for all types of vehicles and/or tools where weight is considered to be of great important.
We must note the fact that it is very convenient since all you have to do is simply put the battery in your ATV, UTV, Motorcycle, etc. and start it. Manufacturers even state that there’s no need to charge it as it comes fully charged. However, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t own a charger or a trickle charger for the winter.
