Mini Truckin’ Nationals

4-25-2015-flier1_opt1

XS Power is thrilled to partner with the Mini Truckin’ Nationals to give away our XP750-CK auxiliary battery and install kit to one lucky participant. Trucks with bags, hydraulics, big stereos, lots of lights, or any electrical accessories need all the battery power they can get! With the XP750 battery an additional 750 amps and 22 amp hours can easily be hidden nearly anywhere!

XS Power SuperCELL

cap1

The wait is over!  XS Power’s new SuperCELL Ultracapacitor is a 2.7 volt, 3,000 farad, 3.04 watt hour power solution you’ve been waiting for!  With over one million charge cycles, the XS Power SuperCELL is able to offer an instantaneous surge of extremely high energy and recharge quickly for continuous performance.  So, what makes the SuperCELL right for you?

cap2

Q: Where can I buy these sexy things? 

A: At the moment, loose SuperCELLs are direct to consumer only by contacting XS Power at info@xspowerbatteries or by calling 865-688-5953.  They will be available for direct purchase on our website at 4xspower.com very soon.

 

Q: Why not? 

A: Ultracaps can be very dangerous in the hands of an inexperienced user.  For this reason, loose cells will be sold only to those who are pre-qualified and agree to the XS Power consent waiver.

 

Q: How soon can I buy them? 

A: We are accepting orders and shipping now!

 

Q: What are the benefits of using them? 

A: Ultracaps can help reduce the strain on your batteries, helping them last longer.  With a properly sized cap bank, you can minimize the effects of voltage loss on your electrical system and improve the overall efficiency of charge/discharge.

 

Q: Can I use only caps and no batteries?

A: Yes, but we do not recommend it because there are excellent benefits that both the cap and the battery can offer, so why not take advantage of both and save the most money?  After over a year and a half of testing, our recommendation is to use one ultracap bank for every 50Ah of battery capacity for burps, or one ultracap bank for every 100-120Ah for music.

 

Q: What is an ultracap bank? 

A: 6 cells must be used for a 12V bank (16.2V max), and 7 cells must be used for a 16V bank (18.9V max), as each cell is 2.7V each.

 

Q: Do we recommend these instead of batteries? 

A: No, batteries are still the simplest and most affordable way to get the power you need for most users.  However, for those who are serious about competition, ultracaps can help to increase SPL scores in short bursts or short duration.

 

Q: I already have some ultracaps from another company, can I use these in parallel with my other caps too?

A: Yes, but as with anything in SPL competition, the more consistency you can build into the system, the better.

 

Q: I’m too scared to work with raw ultracaps, will you offer anything for me in the future? 

A: Yes, the release of the XS Power SuperCell is mainly to showcase the component parts of our upcoming SuperCell Modules.  We have been working on these for nearly a year and a half, and hope to be able to have them ready for official release this summer.  The modules will be available through our normal dealer base and will be safe and easy to use for users of any experience level.

 

 

What do you do next?  Well, if you want to buy SuperCells, email us at info (at) xspowerbatteries.com  We will do our best to keep up with your requests.  If you don’t want SuperCells, stay tuned for other exciting new products coming along this year!

 

Carbon 14 – ’37 Ford Woody

FRONT

Congratulations to ProRides on the Pirelli Great 8 finish at the 2015 Detroit Autorama! Each year, hundreds of the most amazing custom cars on the planet are narrowed down to an extraordinary 8 finalists, of which, the winner of the coveted, Ridler award is chosen. All of the cars in competition are amazing works of art, and those that make the final selection are truly in a league all their own. The ProRides ’37 Ford Woody “Carbon 14” brought amazing elements of both metal and woodwork to this year’s Autorama.
