Great choice

September 28, 2013

I was considering getting a capacitor and was doing further research. I have always tried to avoid getting a capacitor but I am now running a dual amp setup totaling around 1100 watts RMS. I have a H.O. alternator already at 140 amps but i was still having serious voltage drop. I finally decided on this battery. I couldn't be happier. Prior to adding the HC800 my voltage would drop from 14.2 all the way down to 12 and even 11 volts sometimes when the bass was really pounding. Now It rarely drops more than 0.1 volt. It was also nearly half the size, and 12 lbs lighter than my old dry cell battery. I couldn't be happier and I will suggest this product to others. Just a heads up, it doesn't include terminal posts... I sort of wish it came with terminal posts, but for such an awesome battery at this price i really can't complain, and will still happily buy more.

Will always use Kinetik Batteries!

July 21, 2013

I previously owned the KHC600, I loved how this helped the sound system in my car. Much better than having a Cap! This Gel battery is fully sealed. My 600 lasted for over 5 years before it needed to be replaced. In Arizona, where I live, batteries tend to not last long. To have a battery last this long is awesome! So after having the KHC600, I decided to try the KHC800 and have been very satisfied so far. Having this really helps keep my sound system having quality bass for longer periods of time. I will always use a Kinetik battery in my vehicles to help provide a solid quality power source for my sound system. I recommend the Kinetic800. Even after the 5+ years when the battery went bad, it only bloated, it didn't explode. Kinetik has an awesome quality!

Very Cool....

July 6, 2012

I bought the battery because the lights were dimming and sometimes woudnt start with original battery. So i tought about buying a battery from my local autoparts stores but the batteries in stock were not even close to the quality of kinetik. And the prices were just ridiculous so i checked Sonic Electronix for batteries, the prices were just awsome very affordable. The battery works superb i have a 1000 rms 12" sub with same rms amp and u can actually hear the difference. Sonic Electronix has a great veriety of batteries i bought this particular kinetic model because it fit my car and im very happy with it.

Solid power, great product

May 10, 2012

Ive been installing car stereos for over 10 years, I can remember when Kinetic batteries first hit the scene with their AGM technology. The produce was revolutionary then, and still makes a huge impact today. A component that was able to do what hundreds of capacitors can do but only costing slightly more than one, it was a no brainer. I recommend these batteries to anyone running over 300 watts of power, it takes care of headlight dimming, electrical system peaks and makes any system hit harder and cleaner. Adding one of these batteries is not only a good idea, but a must if you want to get the most out of your system.

Too small

February 27, 2012

Smaller then the picture led me to believe, and the posts it comes with wont be for your car most likely. Doesn't deep cycle well, even the AAA guy told me an Optima would have been a better choice when he was jumping my dead battery. It no longer works at all, 5v. Charged it for half an hour at the mechanic.

So far so goo

February 10, 2012

I owned an optima red top before and it didnt last, maybe I was using the wrong color. But when buying a new battery I did research on brands and most reviews gave kinetik high marks so I just got this one a week ago but so far, great battery have small 600w system in the car no probs yet. Although I'm gonna put this one in my wifes car and buy the khc1800 instead. One thing is that these batteries seem to be smaller in physical size than stock ones but better powered. Only con is it did not come with the posts may car uses, not a big problem though.

Small battery with plenty power!

July 4, 2011

I have to say this battery is awesome. I have a bunch of equipment in my car. I have 3 TVs one in dash and 2 10 inch headrests, Kenwood eq, Kenwood 1000 watt RMS amp running at full power pushing 2 10 inch alum10n 800 watts RMS EACH subs, and a 6 speaker Infinity Gold interior system with a 180 watt rms amp pushing them. I have a stock alt, stock batt and the big 3 upgrade with only 4 gauge. With all this stuff pulling power from my stock electrical system I still have no dimming AT ALL. Even with it turned all the way up TVs on playing music videos I have no problems. This batt is the best I've ever dealt with. I've had plenty of caps and none can compare to this. I will never use any other type of battery other then Kinetiks ever again. My next step is to get either 2 12s or the 15 and a Kinetik for under the hood.
