Overview

Our take on the XS Power 551 i-BAR Side and Top Terminal Adapter Kit

The i-BAR system from XS Power stands for "integrated-Battery Amperage Rail." The system starts with safe, secure rails that lock into your battery's case, relieving stress on the cables and side connections. You can then use and combine i-BAR adapter kits to configure your XS Power AGM battery to fit a number of different vehicles and a wide range of applications. By adding or changing posts, you can send power to a variety of components without sacrificing performance.

To my knowledge they are lead but you might want to confirm with XS Power. This is exactly why they are designed for, for use as side posts for GM vehicles. I actually have a pair of these on one of my XS 5100'a, although not exactly used for this purpose, it works the same none the less. So they can be used for multiple applications. [ Andrew  Dec 03, 2018 ]
Yes they will do what you are wanting them for. They convert top to side or side to top. I am not sure about material in which they are made but they work great. [ MICHAEL  Dec 03, 2018 ]
You can use it either way, whatever is more convenient for your application. [ Rafael  Apr 27, 2015 ]
No, it just converts top post side post. You cannot use both post the top and the side at the same time. I sent mine back because of this reason and got a optima yellow top to use both post at the same time. [ MARC C  Apr 27, 2015 ]
