    Power Cells

    Can anyone tell me if there are any companies that sell enhanced batteries such as power cells, that are manufactured in USA? I contacted Kinetik and theirs are made in China. I am looking for something to make sure my amplifiers have sufficient/continuous voltage supply.

    Thanks.

    Kinetik are very good batteries. Try looking up Deka as well. What kind of system do you have and what kind of vehicle is it in?

    I just want to here some theories how this happened.

    Re: Power Cells

    I seriously doubt ANY batteries are made in the US anymore

    Re: Power Cells

    t1990le: I have two vehicles with systems. Both are running old school Soundstream amplifiers. 1994 Chevy 3/4 ton truck, towing package, 4x4, 454 BB. 2006 Infiniti G35 6 speed sedan. My concern is that I have several old school Orion amplifiers now (and thank you to the people on this site for helping me when I posted to get help buying them), three HCCA 250's and one 2100 HCCA, all first or second generation (made in USA). The current draw versus voltage supplied is something I will be concerned about if I put three of these in my Infiniti, which is now running three Soundstream Reference 500 amplifiers. The truck I was just thinking of swapping out the battery for one of these power cells, the biggest one I can fit in there.

    Kinetik recommends using a power cell for the main battery and the one in the trunk so that there are not charging system issues with the differential in the rate of discharge between their power cells and a standard battery.

    For those cynical persons who want to supply China with our money, I feel sorry for you. Yes, there are batteries manufactured here in the US. And if you are happy paying a Chinese citizen pennies to produce something that is sold for huge profit here rather than put Americans to work in manufacturing here, then don't complain about all the Americans out of work. I personally prefer to divert my money to US labor or if I can't find it for the product I want then to Japan or Europe or Taiwan.

    I Googled Alphacell and Alpha Cell. I found a company that sells power back up equipment and power cells, but I did not find any offerings for automotive, it all appeared to be industrial. Thanks for the help.

    Re: Power Cells

    It appears that Kinetik offers a different technology or design to their batteries. I can't verify if it is something significant because I have read it on their web site. I did contact their support department, maybe I will email them again with more questions. But they claim their design allows the battery to discharge at a slower rate and that you can get a more constant voltage using their product.

    Re: Power Cells

    where do "bat caps" get manufactured in ?

    I was under the idea that kenetik batterys can give off power much faster than regular batterys can , so when the demand for power is there by the amplifier, the battery can easily give off all of the power required much faster than a normal battery can deliver.

    also suposedly, they recharge faster too. totaly un clear on this as fact or not,
    and I own a kenetik 800 as my rear battery. yellow top under the hood tho.
    I do get charging issues some times. but my alt is 24 years old I believe, sooo
    that could be part of the problem.
