A few posts above make me think clarification is needed here - Gel and AGM batteries are not the same thing. They are similar Valve Regulated Lead-Acid technology, but the electrolytes completely different. They do have similar pros and cons.

You can use a regular Deltran Battery Tender on an AGM, you should not use these on a BMW or other Gel. Etc., etc.

It's like saying a biodiesel wagon and a gas car are both road vehicles, since neither is a train, but you shouldn't swap the fuels around.

I love every motorcycle I've owned and even some that I haven't.
