The Victron GEL (electrolyte is immobilized as gel) battery is ideally suited for use where a long cycle life is required. With a higher internal resistance than the AGM, they are not so well suited for engine starting or bow thrusters where a very high discharge current is required.
Victron GEL batteries are ideal for applications where a long service life in, for example, stand by power systems is required. GEL batteries have a very low self discharge rate and can be left for long periods without the need to recharge.
