Indianapolis here we come, and we’re bringing a few surprises.

Hot August Nights

Header

 

For nearly 30 years Reno, Nevada has been the place to be for anyone with a passion for art on four wheels!  “Hot August Nights” started in 1986 and has grown into a premier car show for hot rods, customs, and all manner of cool classics. XS Power is proud to work with the amazing group of people with Summit Racing in the Big Boy’s Toy Store. The action is just getting started, so be sure to come out and see us from August 4-9 at Hot August Nights!

UOR2015

With the continuous vehicle upgrades being made to off-road side x side(UTV) vehicles, buggies, and Jeeps, XS Power decided the Unlimited Off-road Expo would be a great place to debut our NEW PowerSports line of batteries. Aftermarket items like stereos, amps, lights, winches, GPS, you name it and it’s is being added to the most popular side x sides and offroad vehicles on the market, but when you add all these accessories you need a battery with enough power to keep it all going and lets face the stock battery is just not enough.  The NEW PS550A, PS320A, PS240A are made specifically for powersports applications and have a 2 yr warranty, so from a light weight race buggy to a decked out RZR, XS Power now has your powersports needs covered! UOR 2015 was an event like none we have ever attended, full of underground mega-cavern cruising on Friday night, UTV side x side freestyle and back flips competition, and some serious Ultra4 and Rock Bouncer racing which went on all day and part of the night Saturday, heck if you sign the insurance waiver and are willing to spent $5 you to could even test your skills and vehicle on the man-made outdoor off-road course.  XS Power had a great experience and got to meet some great new friends like Kenny Hauk from HaukDesigns, haukdesigns.com.  Kenny builds some amazing off-road show pieces like the TomaHauk and we are looking forward to seeing his latest creation at the 2015 SEMA show, which will be sporting 2 of our S3400 batteries in a custom dual battery tray built by Genesis Offroad, genesisoffroad.com.  Event footage is provided by BustedKnuckle.com and MadRam11 on YouTube, here and here!

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.

This is a show you do not want to miss with over 300 trucks and cars gathered in the valley.

With the “TOP 50” the “FAB 5” and the other 15 specialty awards up for grabs it is sure to bring out the best of the best. Stick around after the show for a cruise and drag session down the main streets of Maggie Valley. We choose XS Power for our rides because if you want to be the best you have to start with the best.

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.

 

At ProRides, we always choose XS Power because no matter how harsh the conditions, they work, period. The array of sizes, amps, and mounting orientation fits any need we have ever encountered for a battery. Combine those qualities with the great team of people at XS and it’s a combo no competitor can beat!

NV OPERATIONS FACILITY

Reno_downtown-2

XS Power is proud to introduce our new operations facility in Sparks, Nevada with over 10,000 square feet of warehouse space.

sparks-nv

With an expansive inventory and sophisticated ordering system, order shipping time for west coast and international customers is shortened by several days. Lead time will also be cut dramatically for incoming repair items for west coast customers by offering full service in Sparks, just as offered in Knoxville.

IMG_5147

 

The facility is managed by long time employee Byron Young, who will continue to maintain, and grow new business in the western united states, as well as oversee all of the day to day operations of the warehouse.  “I’m excited to be spearheading this new operation.  We will be able to service our customers quicker than ever” says Young.

IMG_0483

XS Power is pleased to offer this new and exciting opportunity to help better serve all of our customers and focus on building the best power solutions possible.

Lokar Inc.

1401768_10151966761169890_1

One of our newest manufacturing partners, Lokar, is a Knoxville based manufacturer of extremely high quality shifters, pedal assemblies, throttle assemblies, and much more for hot rods, custom cars, and race cars.

IMG_0862 IMG_0860

Not only does XS Power work closely with Lokar on developing new and exciting products but we are also the battery of choice for owner Skip Walls’ personal race cars. Lokar’s slogan is “Quality…Plain & Simple”, and there’s no doubt on the quality on anything Lokar does, but Skip’s cars are anything but simple.  From the most sophisticated Racepak data systems, to the MSD Power Grid, these cars take a lot of battery power to get them down the track…XS Power is more than up to the challenge. We’re proud to be Lokar’s battery choice on these gorgeous cars, and many of their other projects and always excited to see what we can collectively come up with.
