Gel cell batteries use sealed cells for versatile, low-maintenance off-grid power storage. Like AGM batteries, gel batteries' typical applications are for off-grid utility backup or vacation cabins since they're deep cycle and there's no watering needed. A gel battery tends to have a bit longer cycle life than an AGM, but the trade-off is that it is more limited in its ability to deliver peak power. This means you may be able to get away with a smaller battery bank if you choose AGMs.
