I can't figure out if the stock battery is AGM or not. Anyone know for certain? I just hooked up a Noco Genius battery maintainer and am playing it safe by just using the "normal" mode instead of cold/AGM mode. Just curious.

The AGM mode would be the 'safer' mode, since that simply means it'll use less current to prevent the battery overheating. Both battery chemistries are the same. AGM batteries just have a harder time shedding heat and don't "vent" (well they do... once!)

Is there a model number on the battery you can "Google"? Generally speaking, if it doesn't have removable caps where you can add water, then it's an AGM. There are other types of sealed lead acid batteries so it's not a hard and fast rule, but those seem pretty uncommon these days.
