From the article: "AGM batteries are a practical compromise between these two points [flooded lead-acid & lithium]. They’re more expensive than flooded batteries, but nowhere near what lithiums cost."

It's a good take on these batteries and small off-grid power systems, whether for hams or anybody else here.  One more plus of AGM/SLA he doesn't mention is that they come in a bigger selection of medium-to-small sizes than flooded lead-acid batteries.
