The most common use of yellow top batteries is in things that require deep, repetitive drain, like powerful car audio systems, trolling motors, golf carts, electric wheelchairs, or motor home power sources. Spiralcell battery technology provides many advantages, including much more plate surface area, closer plate spacing, and the ability to use higher purity lead. These differences result in lower internal resistance; lower resistance gives you more power in a smaller battery box, the ability to recharge much faster, plus higher, cleaner voltage characteristics during discharge.

What is a BATCAP
A conventional battery, as we all know has a positive and negative terminal. The chemical reaction within creates
a flow of electrons, causing an electronic device (in this case an amplifier) to work. The stiffening capacitor is similar
to a battery in that it stores a charge. The fundamental difference is it cannot create electrons. It can only store and
supply (discharge) them upon demand. The advantage with a capacitor is that it discharges in one twenty thousandth
of a second, unlike a battery that does in one second. The battery therefore cannot discharge fast enough to effectively
supply the amplifier and this is the reason for "power sags."

WAKE UP! Don't fall asleep just yet, we're getting to the exciting part!

The XSTATIC BATCAP© is simply a battery that can discharge just a s quickly as a capacitor. Therefore, you have a
constant supply of electrons that will discharge at lightning speed. This puts less strain on your stock alternator and battery.
It also recharges faster than a conventional battery since the internal resistance is low. How about the install? Well I'm sure
you can find a place to put this 2.5lb. Baby and his 5lb. big brother. Don't let the size fool you though. These BATCAP's
can crank your car, and you can bet we put that to the test!

The cost is another remarkable feature since the 300 model costs the same as a "High End" stiffening capacitor and the
400 model costs a little more. Remember, "good things come in small packages." (I was going to say that "SIZE" doesn't
matter but, let's not offend anyone now.)
