Default Help with battery

I'm trying to charge the battery on my 2017 2008. However no one seems to know what type of battery it is, a gel or a lead acid. The chap in the dealers had never heard of a gel battery!

The OP would need to look on the battery itself. Peugeot developed an ultracapacitor based system so you don't have expensive AGM batteries but the simpler and cheaper calcium lead acid battery. I am not sure if this tech was employed on the 2008

When it comes to charging, both can be charged up the same way. Both are still lead acid batteries, the AGM just has a fibreglass sheet that soaks up the acid and holds it next to the lead plate, whereas the traditional battery has the acid free floating in a liquid.

Provided you use a modern charger, designed for lead acid batteries, you shouldn't need to worry about the exact type.
But why are you needing to charge a relatively new battery?

I had a look and the Ultracapacitor technology IS used on the 2008

Have to say, it is a much more eloquent solution (I have an ultracapacitor booster on my car I made myself) than using expensive AGM / Gel batteries as the german's do!
