As others have explained, the problem is sulfation.  I have had good 
results de-sulfating lead-acid batteries of all types (flooded, gel, 
AGM) with "BatteryMINDer" brand chargers/desulfators.  With badly 
sulfated batteries, rejuvination can take a long time.  Often, they 
return to a good approximation of "like new" performance.  Sometimes 
they improve but don't return to "like new."
