But, there disadvantages can make them less appropriate for a highway driven vehicle. They are less tolerant to overcharging and have a lower charge voltage requirement. Per compared size they have a lower total charge and lower discharge rate capacity.
In an ATV, the gel cell is great. It'll work upside down and sideways. It has excellent spill protection (as does AGM). It is more tolerant of deep cycling and extremely low gassing means much less terminal corrosion.
