    Metra Shuriken Batteries

    Anyone have any experience with them?

    Are they a tested product? Are they reliable... similar to kinetik?

    They are new and just coming into stores. I am sure you will have a hard time getting user opinions on it.

    Metra has had a very poor track record for other products than dash kits and wiring harnesses...even their RCAs ****...

    Re: Metra Shuriken Batteries

    Well I was calling around for local dealers for powermaster, kinetik and other batteries and this guy strarts to tell me about shuriken batteries. I couldnt find a **** thing about them on the internet other than the amp/hour ratings.

    Of course he tried to pump them up because he had them in stock.... they were offered at a very affordable price but I wanted opinions first.

    I guess I'll pass on them for now... see what reviews they get as people try them.

    Just would be nice to beat these shipping costs.... lol

    Only one place around here comes close to internet + shipping costs on the other brands so, still planning out what route I'm taking.

    8 ga wire in 1/0 ga insulation is better!

    Re: Metra Shuriken Batteries

    i have that baby 20 amp one at the bottom. i've yet to hook it up but it seems solid. figured it'd help with my amp and converter when i drop a gaming system in there for my tv screen.and yea, i get them thru metra helllllla cheap which is nice. guess we'll find out if it was worth it.
