    Battery Help

    Gonna be running a BC2000 and BC1100.4, Need helping picking a battery to go with my Yellow Top.

    I will eventually be upgrading the yellow top to a D3400 and getting a 270amp alternator. Looking to buy a XS power battery

    Thinking the D3100 unless a smaller battery could work im all for that (something cheaper would be nice.)

    Re: Battery Help

    From looking at the battery charts a D1200 would support 3000 watts as a secondary, combo with a 3400 in the front think that would be enough?

    Put the D3400 up front. You can get the XP3000 if your mounting inside vehicle. 120 ah battery, more than enough.

    xspower IMO is a better option d3100 has a thick case big slugs amd has 3 year warranty not some china recycled lead battery

    I dont think there is anything wrong with deka. Nor C&D or Powerwre for that matter. Some people like to go the less inexpensive route. I know bgowdy got all of his for about the price of 1 1/2 of the xs power batteries.

    Thats a deal i would say. Plus they are 100+ ah as well. Thats what alot of people are looking at anyway, is the ah. Could care less the cca or the ca

    imo

    2 xs batts and 270 alt is overkill for your power range. I'd do upgraded batt under good and in back. Should be plenty from expierence.

    I may go this route if my voltage stays steady.
