Capacitor Specifications

Capacitance (farads)
Capacitors are rated in farads, and at times microfarads or millionths of a farad. The more farads the capacitor is rated at, the more electrical charge (and wattage) the capacitor will hold. Capacitance is defined as the property of storing an electrical charge between two separate conductors.
10 farads
LCD Meter Display
Displays the current voltage and/or other specification on an LCD readout.
Yes
Maximum Input Gauge Size
This is the largest gauge wire that will fit into the power and ground terminals of this device. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire is. For example, a 4 gauge wire is thicker than an 8 gauge wire and thus has higher current carrying capacity. Always do your best to get this size wire to reduce the risk of damage to your components.
4 AWG
Maximum Output Gauge Size
This number refers to the maximum size of wire that will fit into the output connector(s) of the capacitor, battery terminal, or any other connector with an wire output.
4 AWG
Built-In Distribution Block
A built-in distribution block simply means that the item includes a distribution block. The built-in distribution block will split the single power input into a multiple power output.

Overall a Steal of a deal!

August 27, 2009

All in all this is a good value and product. For the price range its in, I don't think it can be beat. I have had higher priced brands that made a bigger difference in headlight dimming comparing fared for fared, but this stopped by headlight dimming almost completely. Before my headlights would dim almost completely, Kind of rare never owned a car that did that. By the way its a 2003 Mazda 6i. I'm running a 1st generation Kicker KX1200.1 that's pulling 100amps of power. My alternator is a stock unit putting out maybe 90amps. So you crunch the numbers and come to a conclusion. There are higher priced brands, but for the price and performance you cant go wrong. I would highly recommend this product if your not looking to spend more than $100 on a stiffening capacitor. One thing to note: it does look kind of cheap and crappy ( I mean the outer casing) , but the performance is there so that's all that counts.

Power cap

Works good, does what it's meant to do. For the people having problems, maybe the cap needs to be charged.

Great Product and it is priced reasonably. I have this cap for 2000 RMS in my car and it does what it is supposed to. It works and doesn't allow my lights to get super dim. I would recommend it to people.

i got this from a friend only to see the voltage of my system. For a real cap helper i got that kinetic battery. This helps a little when the kinetic battery is unplugged.

Over-rated, but it does work and won't cost you a fortune

June 22, 2009

I used this cap along with two of the smaller 5F caps all in parallel to weld together battery packs.

I would be really surprised if the ACTUAL capacity is half what it says it is. I had a 1F cap that seemed to pack almost as much punch as one of the 5F Power Acoustik caps.

That said, they were cheap so I'm not surprised it's over rated and for the low price I can ignore the deficiency in capacity.

One thing I noticed is that the terminals on the 5F cap would spin the plastic mount when it got nearly tightened, so I had to grab it with a channel lock to tighten it down. This larger 10F unit had much better solid set-screw terminals!

Decent cap

February 28, 2009

I had this cap hooked up to a Power Acoustik PS1-5500D amplifier and my amp was hooked up to an MA Audio EHO152 subwoofer in a 1999 Chevy Tahoe. My headlights, interior lights, and even the lighting on the capacitor all still dimmed to the bass notes but not nearly as bad as they would without the cap hooked up. I like how this cap looks and how easy it was to hook up, but it does not get the job done as I expected. From this experience I would either spend a litle more money and get a higher rated cap or try a different brand.

i dont know

August 29, 2011

I bought this and have yet to use it. i got it for my last car but i have sold that one and have not installed it in my new car as im only running a jl audio 250/1 didnt feel the need to use this yet. when i got it i was kind of unhappy with it. it feels very cheap the hole casing to it is cheap plastic and with a brand name like this you can no for sure it is under rated. if your in the market for a cap i would just buy a good brand name 1 farad. its all you need. dont let big numbers fool you.
