If you've got a boat or an RV, XS Power's got a solution for your electric needs, too.

AGM technology

XS Power deep cycle batteries feature a sealed absorbed glass mat (AGM) design that incorporates special glass fiber mats that contain the acid electrolyte between the lead plates, rather than a standard flooded (liquid) design. This leak-proof, non-hazardous configuration typically lasts longer than normal replacement batteries if properly charged. These batteries actually store energy, so you don't have to add a capacitor to your system to get a quick burst when you need it.

Leak-proof design

Since there are no external vents on an XS Power battery, you can mount it in a passenger compartment, below a seat, or inside a glove box without fear of leaks that cause corrosion or damage to chrome or paint. XS Power guarantees their batteries will not leak, even if damaged. These batteries also resist extreme vibrations so they'll perform in the trunk or hatch area without skipping a beat.

XS Power D6500

The XS Power D6500 deep cycle 12-volt battery provides up to 3,900 maximum amps and has a capacity of 75 amp-hours. A reinforced plastic case protects it in your vehicle. Check "Accessories" for items that'll help you install and secure your new battery.

XS Power offers a handy vehicle guide on their website. Simply enter the year, make, and model, and you'll instantly receive a list of batteries that should fit your vehicle. And they'll recommend installation accessories to help make things more convenient. Or just give us a call and talk to one of our advisors.

Important Note: You must charge this battery before installing it. We recommend XS Power's HF IntelliCharger (sold separately) to charge this battery properly. Improper charging can permanently damage the battery, and void your warranty.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This battery is a perfect fit to replace the starting battery in my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It is providing consistent power for my 1100 Watt sound system. No more dimming headlights when the bass hits. It also holds a charge well for extended engine-off music. Great product.

Pros: Perfect size replacement for 65 series batteries.

Cons: None.

great product but hard to get

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've had this battery installed for 3 weeks and its all I hoped it would be. Plenty of consistent performance and power, no voltage drops. Awesome product! Only problem is crutchfield advertised 2 day shipping, later found out that it comes directly from the factory and took nearly 2 weeks to get. On top of that I asked for tracking info, took a week to get it and had to get it from Xs Power themselves, the reps couldn't even call them I had to. They acted like it was my problem and it'll get there when it gets there. I've ordered many things from crutchfield and never had this kind of problem.

Pros: Power, performance, attractive,

Cons: Shipping

Battery is fine, some accessories will not work

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The battery works for what I needed in a truck with a winch. However, the 551 iBar top and side terminal kit WILL NOT work with the D6500 battery. Since the battery and accessories are sent from the manufacturer, Crutchfield will ask you to contact them. I tried but they never returned the multiple calls. However, the 551 iBar is not worth the price of returning them. This is first problem I've ever had with a Crutchfield sold item so I don't hold them fully responsible but it does show that not everything is tested to assure it works. Caveat emptor on items shipped from the manufacturer.

Pros: Quality battery and fast delivery.

Cons: Some accessories listed will not work with certain XS batteries

Features

Overview: The XS Power D6500 is a 12-volt battery that is designed to be used as a supplemental power source in your vehicle, or it can replace your vehicle's OEM battery. It can supply the power needed to run your high-powered audio system, better than a standard battery.

Terminals Needed: This D-series battery does not come with battery terminals, so you will need to purchase the proper terminal adapters for your application before installation can take place:

  • Car Stereo Installation: You will need terminal adapters that fit the inner diameter of your power ring terminals. Recommended terminal adapters include: Two 5/16" brass stud adapters (#589), Two 3/8" brass stud adapters (#590), Two 5/16" + Two 3/8" brass stud adapters (#588), or Two 3/8" zinc-plated steel stud adapters (#587). For dual-battery installations, a second battery install kit, such as the XS Power AK3500, can be used to connect the D6500 in parallel (+ to + and - to -) with the main battery.
  • OEM Battery Replacement: The D6500 fits the BCI Group 65 vehicle applications and will fit many small imported vehicle applications. If you are installing the battery under the hood or replacing your vehicle's OEM battery, you will need either the Short Brass Post Adapters (#580) or the Long Brass Post Adapters (#586) to connect your battery cables. The D6500 Billet Aluminum Hold Down (#585) can also be used to install the battery under the hood.

i-Bar: The integrated Battery Amperage Rail (i-Bar) system accessories can be used with this battery in special applications. These include the Marine i-Bar Top Only (#554) and i-Bar Multi Top Only (#556).

Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM): XS Power's AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) batteries use a fibrous material to suspend the liquid electrolyte against the lead plates. Because the electrolyte is absorbed in the material, there is little chance of an acid leak, even in the event the case is ruptured. AGM batteries contain more lead compared to traditional "flooded" batteries, thus producing more power.

Charging the Battery: It is very important to properly charge an Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) battery before using. Improper charging can permanently damage the battery, and will void the warranty. The XS Power HF IntelliCharger for AGM Batteries (sold separately) has a microprocessor that monitors the charging process to avoid overcharging, and is recommended for this battery.

Specifications: The D6500 has the following specifications:

  • MAX Amps: 3900 amps
  • Cranking Amps (at 32°F): 1070 amps
  • Reserve Capacity: 150 minutes
  • Discharge Capacity: 75 Ah (amp hours)
  • Dimensions: Length=11.8", Height=6.8", Width=7.2"
  • Weight: 58 pounds
