XS Power Batteries and The Richard Petty Driving Experience Team Up Again for 2010-2011 Season

XS Power, Richard Petty Driving Experience

XS Power Batteries and The Richard Petty Driving Experience are happy to team up for a second year. This makes XS Power Batteries the exclusive battery partner of The Richard Petty Driving Experience. Scottie Johnson, sales manager for XS Power Batteries said “We are very excited to work with the Richard Petty Driving Experience again for the 2010/2011 season. It gives us the opportunity to place our batteries in a very high demand environment and monitor their progress. Being able to receive confirmation that our batteries are performing flawlessly on such a large scale gives us the confidence to offer a 3 year warranty to our customers, as well as provide our customers with peace of mind in knowing that our products can withstand anything they can throw at it.”

The Richard Petty Racing school uses the same S975 light weight racing battery in their race cars that you can purchase from your local dealer. If The King can depend on XS Power batteries holding up to the repeated starts of their high powered engines don’t you think you can?

XS Power Teams Up with TRUCKS!

Chevy C-10 on TRUCKS!  Powerd by XS Power S925!

Chevy C-10 on TRUCKS! Powered by XS Power S925!

Check out the May 2010 issue of Power Block Magazine, revealing an insane transformation Kevin Tetz and Ryan Shand (from the Spike TV’s Power Block show Trucks!) completed on a 1966 Chevy C-10. Kevin and Ryan took an old C-10 farm truck and turned it into an eye catching C-10 daily driver that anyone would be happy to drive! The C-10 project was completed with a new 283 small block under the hood, new exhaust, air ride system, and of course an XS Power battery was used to power it all! The battery of choice was the XS Power S925 outfitted with our Billet Aluminum Hold Down (XS Power part # 525) to finish the engine bay off with a clean polished look. At only 26lbs and over 2,000A of instantaneous cranking power and 550CA, the S925 has the juice and the appeal TRUCKS! was looking for to top off this project.

You can check out Power Block on Spike every Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 am (eastern), and you can watch the full episode on the C-10 build online at Spike.com. Make sure to check out Tony and Rick’s upcoming episode on the Red Sled featuring another top notch battery installation from XS Power!

Power Up Your Computer With New XS Power Wallpapers!

Wrecked Mag Wallpaper

Ready for your computer to show off some extra power; so much so you might call it “XS” Power?  (Hyuk hyuk, see what I did there?)

Well look no further than these two new XS Power wallpapers, featuring Wrecked Magazine’s Project 350z super car!  This beast is powered by an XS Power battery, so you know it flies.

Check out the wallpapers below, in both wide and standard screen definitions.  (Ain’t we accommodating?)

Wrecked Magazine Drops S680 Into Project 350z

Project 350z

When Wrecked Magazine needs some real power in one of their project cars, they look toward XS Power to get them all the juice they need.

That’s why when their Project 350z car needed some serious spark, they went with our S680, an absolute little monster of a battery. Check ’em out doing the install here.

The car will be on display for the first time at Formula Drift Round 1 at the Universal Technical Institute booth.

Our buddies at Wrecked Magazine did a quick write-up showing us how they installed a S680 in their 350Z. Take a look. The 350Z as a whole is coming along quite nicely as well. There are plenty of other write-ups you can check out as well.
Thanks Wrecked Mag. Looking forward to your next issue!

Is Conductance Testing Useful?

Conductance testing is useful for determining the remaining life (or state of health, SOH) in a battery.  Many battery distributors and service centers use conductance testing on a regular basis for this very purpose and warranty processing.  However can conductance testing be used to establish a rating for a new battery?  According to Midtronics, a leader in conductance testing, no!    To quote their website,

“The Midtronics CCA value derived from conductance does not, however, determine the actual Cold Cranking Amps of the battery because that test includes a lengthy discharge of 30 seconds at a very high current rate.”

“The Midtronics CCA values are designed simply to mimic the initial starting characteristics of new batteries with a given CCA rating under the same operating conditions.
For example, if a battery that is rated at 600 CCA is measured at 500 CCA, it can be thought of as having similar starting characteristics of a new battery having a rating of 500 CCA if that battery is substituted with the test battery. It does not mean that the battery will pass a Cold Cranking Test at 500 CCA. It should also be remembered that the cranking power of all batteries increases with temperature and decreases with discharge and degradation.”

In talking with one of their engineers at the recent AAPEX show in Las Vegas and going through a demonstration of their product, it was clear that the Midtronics unit is not designed to set the CCA number, only to estimate it given a standard.  You enter the factory rated CCA data into the Midtronics machine and the machine returns a CCA that represents the battery’s state of health.
