I don't know how to explain it clearly, I don't know enough about batteries to get the point across simple and to the point.

On a side note, I want to announce a fart that made my dogs leave the room and look at me like I was going to kill them through the doorway of the kitchen... This toxic thing might be headed in your direction so be on the lookout...

I do know that any time there's a big show (SBN, stc, etc...) they fuggers are sold out of EVERYTHING for months.
I tried to get a 3100 and it was like a 4-6 month wait on em.
They're smart, they push batteries that have a purpose and sell. Aside from car audio, they sell a shit ton for race cars and so on.

But tbh I figured their wire was gonna take off way more than it did.

We need to invite North Star on here

Batcap and North Star batteries are the only batteries I would take over an XS Power.

Not because they are of a higher quality battery, batcap are awesome with their low internal resistance. I have seen some North Star 3rd party testing with some of the top batteries and the North Star dominated

Anyone hear that North Star is Kinetiks new buildhouse for the HC Pro series? Muahahah

This made me think of you differently. I've mainly just seen the ******* posts of yours. Make me realize that you are just human. I won't misjudge you again sir.

Running a "good enough" battery is not the same as a "very good" battery. You need to learn that distinction. You could get rid of two turd batteries and put one good battery in it's place.

Unless you have owned and tested both, your comments are nothing but "this shit is cheaper and works "just as good" as XS, even though I've never owned XS so I have no basis for comparison" posts.

The fact of the matter is that you don't know shit. You are cheap and buy whatever is cheap. XS makes ridiculously good batteries. So much so that I swapped out batts in both of my trucks because of that.

Further, it's not just the batteries that make XS a good company, and worth the extra coin. It's the same reasons that everybody loves sundown: customer service. People can get 1kw, 2kw, 3kw, etc. amps anywhere. Why does sundown continue to sell so many anyways? Because of good CS, good products, support for the industry and continuing R&D.

You ever try to get a battery warrantied through whatever jank ass place you buy your batts from? Do they even have warranties? Can you call up the owners of the company and bullshit with them about their products?

You ever hang out with the owners of the batts you run? Do any of these shitty cheap companies support OUR hobbies?

That last part is what really sometimes bothers me about people being so god damn cheap. Everybody wants shows to go to, but people don't want to support the companies that are supporting these shows. Not only that, then these people have the balls to say that these companies suck BECAUSE they don't support shows. Why should they? All of you guys are off buying other crap, claiming it's just as good (with no evidence) and not giving that company any kind of return on their investment that gives us a place to play.

Nope, they run their subs off garbage audiopipe amps, wired up with welding cable, powered off of their duralast batts.

Support the companies that support us, or watch this industry (and car audio shows) die.

CACO now stands for "Cheap Ass Car Owners".

Fwiw I think I knew that xs used to have a section can't say I ventured in there very often. It seems that they must be doing something right with as many batteries as they sell, it's hard to say that they're the best without any really good tests being done at least that I'm aware of. I've never heard a complaint about XS batteries, but I've never heard any complaints about nsb's either. With all the choices out there the word of mouth on xs definitely doesn't hurt them. I'd love to try their products or an nsb but right now what I have works just fine.
