    '17 R8 Plus type of battery?

    Hooking up a Ctek 3300 battery maintainer. Does anyone know the stock type of battery used on the 2017 R8 plus? Is it a regular battery or an ASM type battery?

    It is a sealed acid battery; I thought the term was AGM.

    Takes care

    So our stock plus battery would use the regular battery mode from the Ctek?
    I always thought it was AGM battery.

    Use the AGM selector on the CTEK charger if your model has it.

    Yes, my Ctek charger does have the AGM mode. Just wanted to be 100% sure what mode to use it in. Regular battery or AGM mode on the charger?
