About the XS Power D1200
Depending on your vehicle and the application, you'll need some accessories to connect your XS Power battery. To see what works with this battery, click on the "Accessories" tab above. If you have questions, our advisors are here to help.
Give your vehicle the necessary juice to perform at its best. XS Power deep cycle batteries can act as replacements for your car's standard battery, or you can use them as auxiliaries to power your high-performance sound system and hydraulics reliably. If you've got a boat or an RV, XS Power's got a solution for your electric needs, too.
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.
Compact size, leak-proof design
Their compact size lets you get creative with your installation. 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. No leaks mean no corrosion or damage to chrome or paint, and 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.
Don't let the small size fool you — the cranking power of an XS Power battery can be two to three times the power of a flooded battery of equal size.

Excellent battery. Fit in a smaller foot print than a standard battery with similar amperage. Great product

Great battery so far. Wasn't a perfect fit for my 2009 WRX, but you can cut the styrofoam base that comes in the box to make it tall enough to use the stock battery tie down in a pinch. Looking into getting new tie down with shorter hooks. I wish XS made a perfect fit battery for the WRX.
Pros: Lots of power, performs very well
Cons: The battery is too short to use stock battery tie downs in 2009 WRX

Haven't received this product yet. Its been over a month and they keep telling me it is going to ship. I can't track it because they sent part of the order and the rest hasn't shown yet. It says on the web site when I try to track that all of its been delivered. Talked to them tons of times and told them what I see when I look into my account under orders and its still the same. I've never had this much trouble from them before. Would just cancel the order if i didn't need the battery so bad

Unfortunately, I can't give this a 5 star due to the physical design of the battery. The terminals are recessed on the corners, which I got the 586 tall posts as is recommended, but my terminals still barely fit. I think I will get the iBars and hopefully they will fit better. I don't see one on XS website that has the right configuration for me. I wish they just made this a flat top battery... The battery is a lot smaller than the stock WRX battery, so I used a 1" Starboard base and mounted L-brackets with the XS battery case. I used a COBB battery tie down with the stock hooks. I have a 900 Watts RMS system running at half power, so I can't really tell if the battery is better than my old one.
Pros: Looks great. Seems to perform well and it uses good materials.
Cons: They need to redesign the top.

I needed a new battery but didn't want a stock one. I did some research first before buying one. I'm glad I bought this battery for my car and small system I have installed. It brings my music to a hole new level that I never experienced before. I never believed review's about how much better is getting a xs power or any other stereo system battery till I bought one. I'll definitely buy another when needed. I use it as my starter battery which is also powering a PBR300x2 and a PBR300x4. I only have one issue that is the accessories didn't cost a lot. I needed something to hold it down better cause this battery is smaller then my stock. I had to build a box for it.
Pros: Clearer highs and lows at lower volume compared to my stock battery, better sound quality overall.
Cons: None but accessories cost to much to secure battery.

This battery is a must have if you are planning on adding amplifiers. Search for the big three on this site and proceed accordingly.
Pros: Nice clean look. Tons of power for a small space.
Cons: Needed to buy terminals for install in a Subaru.

More details on the XS Power D1200
Overview: The XS Power D1200 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 AK3000, can be used to connect the D1200 in parallel (+ to + and - to -) with the main battery.
- OEM Battery Replacement: 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. You will also need the MC-D1200 metal protective case. The 1200 Billet Aluminum Hold Down (#545) can also be used to install the battery under the hood.
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 D1200 has the following specifications:
- MAX Amps: 2600 amps
- Cranking Amps (at 32°F): 725 amps
- Reserve Capacity: 80 minutes
- Discharge Capacity: 44 Ah (amp hours)
- Dimensions: Length=7.8", Height=6.69", Width=6.54"
- Weight: 33.26 pounds
