AGM battery configuration

Post by RugbyAl »

Hi. Just replaced my EFB battery after it failed (Covid lack of use, short journeys) - 3 years old. Decided to replace with AGM, and I was informed by vendor that Varta 096AGM was compatible.
I can find option to change battery type, but only 3 AGM options,

0 AGM 80AH 700CCA T7
1AGM 70AH 600CCA H6
2 AGM 80AH 700CCA H7

All other options appear to be EFB

The Varta 096AGM is 70AH 760 CCA. I have set to type 1, 70AH 600CCA and stop start etc working fine.

Does anyone know how to tweak to the exact spec of the 096AGM, or is that not an option / required?

Thanks.

Hi Lenko

Thanks for your reply. I set the battery type to 1AGM 70AH 600CCA H6 in the options given in the BMS, and I checked 726-04-01 and it is set to 01xx xxxx xxxx. Guessing the setting is closest possible option rather than specific settings?

Regards

Alan

According to this you are probably ok as 01 seems to fit the 760 CCA.
