Can different type 12 volt batteries, lead acid and agm batteries be charged simultaneously on a MK 315D charger?

As long as the type of battery is approved for use with the charger, it shouldn't matter. It reads the charge in each battery and charges them individually.

The charger won't get past the absorption mode on the agm (flashing yellow) battery . A battery test showed good and has 925 cca. I don't have a owners manual for the charger so I don't know if the two are compatible.The agm battery is a heavy duty Exide Road Force I wanted to use as a startling battery although it's not a deep cycle battery.

They can be charged at the same time, hooked up to seperate banks. They most likely will not come to full charge at the same time due to different rates of discharge, battery size etc. Some of my batteries take hours longer to charge than others. If you leave that one hooked up and it doesn't ever come to full charge switch charging banks and try it, if it comes to full charge the other bank is bad. If it doesn't come to full charge take it to auto store to load test it....

Already done all you mentioned. I charged it for about 12 hrs and switched banks and nothing changed. I also had a lead acid battery on and swapped it with the banks on the agm and it charged on both banks.I did notice the agm battery was pretty warm.

Update; The agm battery finally took a full charge from the MK315D charger. I did learn that agm batteries take longer to charge than lead acid batteries.
