This year, we had the opportunity to try out XS Power Batteries’ latest sealed batteries. These are sealed batteries that were designed to provide the most crank and power for your ride. In order to test them out, we decided to put them through the most extreme cross-country conditions in Lowrider’s own “Aztec One.”

The operating plant received four of the D3100 batteries which power up the freightliner. The actual trailer received 2 batteries that serve to operate all of the trailer’s accessories. This offers great back-up support for the trailer, as it powers the generator that controls all of the interior trailer lights, as well as the rear lift gate. With more cranking amps than traditional wet 31-series batteries, these sealed batteries are a perfect crossover for the hopping Lowrider. Given the amazing performance of these batteries, we can’t wait to try them out on a hopper!

Quote from:Reed Turner/Aztec 1 pilot
“When the truck is parked and not operating, the batteries can hold a charge without needing to be jumped to start the rig. From the heights in the Mile High City to the extreme heat of the Arizona weather, these batteries have yet to fail, and have successfully turned Aztec on every time.

They have outperformed the old wet 31-series batteries well beyond our expectations.”
