FAQ: MX5 Battery. Where is it, what type is it and charging

Post by zorruno » Wed Mar 16, 2011 12:08 pm

The MX5 uses an AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) style battery rather than the standard lead acid, or sealed lead acid batteries used in most cars. This is also not to be confused with a 'Gel' cell battery.

Some useful information on batteries, specifically the AGM style is here:
