Anybody planning on switching out there xp series or D series for these?  Can this be used under the hood?  Any info or thoughts on this batt would be appreciated.

Can this type of battery be used as a stand alone, main starting battery hooked straight to the alternator?

 

Love the weight of it. 

 

And/or, could you just parallel this battery in with a regular lead acid battery?

 

Looks like a nice option... But I have questions LOL

Email XS directly or any of their authorized dealers and inquire. Email down4sound and XS and see who answers first and what each of them have to say about the matter.

I love the weight of it too.  And yes it can be paralleled with a regular lead acid battery.  I called xs power the other day and they told me it can be parallel but I forgot to ask them if it can be used under the hood.  If it can’t be used under the hood then I’ll just leave my d3400 and use this for the back.  It will save me from having so much weight in the back.. two xp3000s and a d3100 are heavy as shit lol.

Bringing this topic back up, they have came out with a new product that is made to go under the hood, lithium, can be used as a stand alone cranking battery, and 1 battery is good to 5000 watts with 200-300A alternator. They advised against going over 350amp in input current, and the battery is good for only 4000watts if input current is less than 200amps. So even guys with stock alternators could likely get some good current to their amp with one of these batteries. 

 

They also say it can be wired in parallel with 12v AGM batteries.... Though i personally still would not do that... But thats just me LOL

 

I asked the company to verify everything, and then ordered mine.

Hey guys I have also been eyeing the titan 8 for a direct swap for engine battery. looking to see if how your experience went so far? 

I just bought and installed a titan 8 pwr-s5. This model is advised to not be used under the hood, the temperature range is something like optimum up to 95*F. I never asked about CCA for starting though. Per XS, it can be run parallel with a lead acid battery for a few weeks worst case scenario, but advises to be run with AGM to reduce parasitic drains. I ran it with a lead acid for 1 night, until I found a new diehard agm local. Battery rests just over 13v, and per the spec sheet I think 13.6 is 100% charged. I love the weight of it, and the quad inputs on each side

I'm using the under hood safe battery without any issues. With it and my 250 amp alt I see mostly 13.9 volts after it's been running and it's hot... Up to 15v cold. I'm still waiting on new subs so I haven't really been able to test voltage drop much. But I have a 5k amp... So once subs get here I'll give it a good workout and report back.

 

I was advised not to give this battery over 300amps input. Though some have said 350 max... So if you have a high output alternator that's greater than that I'd add 2 batteries to equal the load out a little more. And these are 12v batteries, so don't expect 15-16 volts like with some lithiums.

Direct replacement. No issues cranking and starting. So much lighter too. I went from a 60 something pound battery to an 8 pound battery.

 

Charge fully with a lithium charger before use. I contacted XS power and they showed me a couple cheap 20-30 dollar chargers on Amazon that work fine.
