Do I need to charge my stop-start car's battery in AGM mode?

I have a stop-start car and a CTEK trickle charger. The charger seems, when it is switched on, to auto select battery mode. But, being stop-start, does that mean that the car has an AGM battery? Therefore, do I need to use the AGM charging mode?

You will need to check with the battery manufacturer, as not all AGM batteries charge at 14.4V. If in doubt, charge it on standard mode.
