    Dc Power Vs. Singer

    I can get a Singer 275 amp for $490 or a Dc 270 amp for $620. This is going in a 2013 Dodge Challenger sxt. The dc they actually have ready to be shipped in a couple of days as they make this for a Limo and is already built. Is the $130 worth the Dc?

    Both are good, the DC is just a little bit better IMO. I believe the DC stops outputting as much power if it gets too hot to prevent overheating, which can be a plus.

    Re: Dc Power Vs. Singer

    The Dc is an xp series and he said it would do 160 amps at idle but other alts on their website say 200 at idle. I was wanting more as stock is 160 amps max. The 370 amp is a $1000.

    I went with singer and got to meet him actually. He very nice and knows his shit. Lifetime warranty is nice too, look up his YouTube channel. Singer alternators he shows tests and actual load numbers unlike a lot of companies

    I dont mind singer at all but if a part fails in my alt in the first year I dont think having to pay for parts is cool at all.

    Very true point but if you have a failure after warranty it will **** a lot more, he has 90 day worry free warranty plus the lifetime

    Like I said I just went through this and I'm a warranty guy plus he's local

    Re: Dc Power Vs. Singer

    DC sent me the wrong one then argued for a week before they would refund me. Singer is a beast and amazing CS.
