XS Power Battery Proper Charging Info

Recommended Posts

•It is very important that proper charging techniques be used when charging XS Power batteries. XS Power batteries are designed for use with the XS Power battery chargers with a MAXIMUM output voltage of 2.4 volts per cell (14.4v for 12v batteries and 19.2v for 16v batteries). AT NO TIME during charging should the battery be subjected to more than 2.4 volts per cell. Voltages above this will cause the battery to “gas” and once the oxygen is vented it cannot be restored.

•Under-charging XS Power batteries is equally damaging to the life of the battery. Take special care to ensure

that the battery is properly charged before the initial use by verifying the open circuit voltage is above 2.1

volts per cell (12.6 for 12v batteries and 16.8 for 16v batteries). Improper charging can cause damage that

is permanent and will VOID THE WARRANTY. If you are unsure if your charger is AGM compatible, please

contact the XS Power Batteries Tech Support Department at 888-497-7693, or email us at [email protected] for more details.

amps: (1) Digital Designs S4a, (1) Digital Designs SS2a (1) Digital Designs SS3a, (1) SKAR Audio 4500.1D (2) runs 0g. POS. & NEG.

In my opinion, you really need more under the hood - 2nd alt. You can keep adding batteries but you dont have a sufficient source of amperage. Batteries only store power, they don;t produce it. You can add batts and monitor voltage and adjust your sound to let the batts charge up again as an alternative.
