    I'm interested in adding an isolator to my car, but how big of one?

    How do I go about choosing the correct size isolator for my setup? I'm currently running two air compressors and 2 amps totaling 2000 watts. HELP! The isolator that I'm looking at is the Stinger SR200, but i'm not sure if this i sufficient. TIA

    uh, why? just wire up your **** in parallel, either way the load on your alternator wont be much different. How many batteries do you have to start with?

    I'm looking to add a second battery. It would be pretty smart to add an isolator just so the main starting battery doesn't drain from the audio/compressors running while the car is off.

    I guess if you have all that stuff in the first place, you should be running multiple batteries in parallel banks already. Not that id know about anything like that
