Battery Dimensions

Hi All,
I am building a battery box for a couple Group 31 deep cycle wet cells.
IF...I change to AGM in the future is the AGM Group 31 the same outisde dimensions?

has anyone happened across some sort of battery dimension chart by chance?

Thanks for any help with this

ps... Not looking for a discussion about AGM vs. Golf Cart batteries etc..Thanks

Talking Re: Battery dimensions

Ah the problem is each manufacturer builds different sizes. Also manufacturers change sizes as well. I know!

Re: Battery dimensions

Yeah, many (most?) of the battery brands have a size chart on their website. And I suspect part of the reason for the class labeling (Group 31, 4D, 8D, etc.) was to take a stab at standardizing sizes... even if there is some slight variation across brands. A quick comparison would likely answer.
