Batteries and Accessories
What is an AGM battery?
Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) Batteries completely eliminate the hassles of conventional battery maintenance. There is no liquid acid in AGM batteries. All of the acid is absorbed into the compressed glass matting in the cells. They are completely Non-Spillable, so they can be shipped by mail or courier service with no hazardous warnings or extract fees. Likewise, they can be mounted in any position for special application.
How do I charge an AGM Battery?
AGM batteries should only be charged with AGM compatible chargers. Please view our full XS Power 1004 16V and 1005 12V/14V/16V charger manuals for complete instructions.
Why do XS Power batteries cost more than flooded batteries?
XS Power batteries are manufactured using only virgin lead, 99.99% pure compared to most batteries that use recycled lead. The pure-lead design means better performance. In other words, MORE POWER!
Grids are thinner. This allows for more grids which means more surface area in a smaller package. More surface area means MORE POWER!
AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) design means longer life, vibration resistant, deep cycle and can be mounted in any position (except upside down).
Why XS Power Batteries?
We believe that to create a superior product you must have a vast knowledge of your product offering. For this reason we have invested a great deal of time and money into the development and understanding of our batteries and the markets we supply. This task could not be completed with run-of-the-mill test equipment. We worked in cooperation with one of the worlds largest and prominent battery testing equipment manufacturers to develop a one of a kind test lab that would enable us to duplicate circumstances realized in real world battery applications. Our battery tester is capable of being programmed to simulate a wide range of scenarios like the dynamic current loads from an amplifier for daily driving, or the insane power demands from top sound pressure competition vehicles. We are convinced that in-depth testing and quality control is a must for any manufacturer that is serious about delivering quality batteries to the mobile audio market. Buy from the people who understand both the market and the product – XS Power!
Get more continuous amps for less weight! Why drag around extra weight for less power?
Ultra Internal Resistance:
XS Power batteries design allows for extreme amounts of discharge current, as well as super fast recovery and recharge rates. XS Power batteries are ideal when you want to add that extra boost for your stereo without having to upgrade the entire electrical system.
Don’t let the small size and weight of XS Power batteries fool you. The cranking power of XS Power Batteries can be two to three times the power of a flooded battery of equal size. Take for example the XS Power Battery Part Number S925. It will often out perform and last longer than the bigger battery that comes original equipment on a new car. This makes XS Power the ideal battery for race cars, street rods, and daily drivers.
Since there are no external vents on an XS Power battery, there is no fear of mounting it in a passenger compartment, below a seat, or inside a glove box. No leaks mean no corrosion or damage to chrome or paint. We are so confident in the safety of XS Power batteries that we guarantee no acid leak even if damaged.
Extreme Vibration Resistance:
Rigorously tested to withstand insane amounts of vibration allows XS Power batteries to be installed inside the harsh environments of the trunk or hatch areas where sound vibrations can ruin the average battery.
The perfectly sealed design of the XS Power AGM Batteries allows safe, maintenance free operation, allowing them to be used in nearly any position without sacrificing life expectancy or performance. This means there is no need to constantly check and refill the electrolyte and no more corroded terminals to clean!
Excellent Storage Life:
XS Power Batteries are perfect for show cars or situations where the batteries are left unused over a long period of time. A fully charged XS Power battery can sit for up to a year at room temperature and still have the power to produce when you’re ready.
10 Year Design Life:
Built to last, XS Power Batteries have the ability to stand the test of time. Engineered to provide 10+ years of float service and to endure more than 1000 discharge/recharge cycles depending on the average depth of discharge.
