Very nice

October 29, 2014

I purchased this battery to replace my current one and it surprised me at first. I was worried from its size that it wouldnt be as strong as my stock battery. I was pleasantly surprised when after running it for a few days it takes a tap of the key to start my car. 98 vw jetta 2.0
Love it.
Compared to other batteries at this price... seriously just get it.

Recieved product at a nice 13.5 volts. Product is small and light but packs a punch. Im using this battery as a primary for my car. It holds its charge well and performs as described. Only con is that the terminals must be VERY tight or they will lossen over time.

DOES THE JOB

May 19, 2015

I got this for a backup or 2nd battery and it works great b4 I got it I was having a lot of diming problems I was running about 700 watts rms and killing my stock system and yes I have big3 done as well so I ordered the hc1200-blu ran it into the back of my jeep and on the 700 watts rms there is no problems at all then I ran a new sub at 1ohm at 1000 rms and there was very little diming so slim to none that diming only show at max on low and I mean low beats all and all I am happy with it but you must understand one thing I have a 04 jeep libby and b4 the sub's amps and all of that it had diming problems off the stock system being the radio so with my jeep I feel there is a bigger problem but its an 04 and I'm not dealing with it it has less dimming then ever and to me that's great haven't had it hooked up to a volt meter since the hc1200 was put in but you can hear the diff. hope this helps someone



and the big ? I had about the hc1200-blu was can it take the heat under the hood and from what I learned yes it can for those of you looking for that app.

I'm using it as primary battery in a 2003 dodge ram 1500...so far so good turns the engine over just as quick as a new oem battery...this morning it was 30º outside ..i had to modify the aftermarket install kit as it did not fit the dodge ram at all ( for that i drop one star ) and three stars for ease of use also one for durability as it has not been deployed in the field long enough to make an assessment

Ok

July 18, 2016

I bought this to power a kicker dx1000.1 but quickly found out that it would not keep my voltage above 12volts. I ended up getting an isolater and a xs d3400 for my amps and just used the kinetik for my starter battery. Not really as powerful as advertised, more like 400 CCA 1200 max amps. It's agm so it's better than my stock battery at the same price. Might power 500 watts or less

if used as the main battery replacement, is it wired the same way?
A shopper on Jun 23, 2015
Best Answer: May want to be more specific with the question, if you mean connectors it may need posts that match what your car already has and if you mean is the + and- on the same side as stock battery you should check and make sure since most stock wiring doesn't have enough slack to swap sides - other than those yes it's the same

can this go under my hood?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2015
Best Answer: This is a very popular size battery for a lot of cars made within the last 10 years. The way I matched this to my car is to measure my current battery in the car. Reading the dimensions on the site seem a little confusing. I interrupt the measurement as: About 7" tall from bottom to top, about 6 1/2" wide measured left to right from the most narrow side of the battery, and lastly...about 7 1/2" long measured from left to right of the longest side of the batter. Write down the measurements of your car battery in the fashion above. If your measurements fall within these specs, it will fit your car. Remember that car batteries can vary in size about 1/2" to 1" in any direction and still fit. Hope this was helpful. I never trust what the "book" states about batteries fitting or not. The best way to be exactly sure is to physically measure the battery. Hope this was helpful. I bought one of these and have been very impressed. I have tools and car knowledge so I put the battery under a load and made the conditions same as 32 degree... this battery tested even more cranking amps and longer run time than advertised!! I am a car and stereo buff. This is a great deal for a battery like this. Hope this information was helpful. I also recommend doing business with Sonic for all your car stereo and electronic needs. They are the best I have seen about quick shipping and I have never been sent the wrong item or a damaged item.

I have a 200amp high output alternator and my car still has some dimming lights on certain notes. I have two re audio sex 12's dual 4 ohm wired to 1 ohm and pushing 1200w Rms to them. I also did a Big three up grade and I have a second amp for my door speakers its a 4 channel amp that's pushing about 120w rms to each speaker. What size battery should I get or should I get a 3 f capacitor?
brent s on Oct 17, 2014
Best Answer: I have almost the same except it's a 220w alt, and I went beyond big 3 and basically replaced all power mains up to 4 ga minimum. From front fuse box to inside fuse box for example and also made a way overkill ground kit and grounded frame to body to motor all over the place. I use a kinetic 1200 for main battery and then that runs to a little kinetic 600 right before the amp. No dimming or major voltage drops. I haven't used a capacitor since the 90s due to the battery technology making them obsolete IMHO. Hope that helps!
