I have Solar BA9 battery/system tester. It needs accurate battery Type and Rating input to perform the test.
My 2004 E320 has Mercedes Battery, 2-years old, sticker info only shows: A 005 541 10 01, 12 V 95 Ah 850 A (EN), VRLA-BATTERY.
It is my understanding VRLA (valve-regulated lead-acid) could be either Gel Cell or AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) or even wet cell acid.
I went to a dealer hoping to get some answers… I left with zero confidence I got any…
Asked the Parts person, he said it's a gel cell. I said are you sure it is not AGM? What's AGM he asked… oops… he was looking at his computer screen and said: fiberglass. I said that sounds like AGM… he replied… I don't know, why don't you ask service people. I did… they said: its a standard (sealed) wet acid battery. I'm pretty sure it isn't but…
Does anybody know… for sure… what kind of battery this is?
