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.

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.

XS Power D1200

The XS Power D1200 deep cycle 12-volt battery provides up to 2,600 maximum amps and has a capacity of 44 amp-hours. You'll need a protective case if you're installing this battery in your engine compartment. Check "Accessories" for other items that'll help you install and secure your new battery.

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.

Product Research

Features

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

This will depend largely on your vehicle and the components being installed. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation.

Q
would a Schumacher SSC-1500A-CA Ship n' Shore 15amp battery charger work well to charge and maintain this battery?
[ joseph  Aug 22, 2016 ]

XS Power only recommends using their HF1215 charger which is specifically designed for charging their batteries properly and protects against overcharging: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_122HF1215/XS-Power-HF1215-IntelliCharger.html?tp=6726 I hope that helps!

Q
is this big enough battery for the trunk to run a 1200 watt amp?
[ kenny  Apr 05, 2015 ]
3 answers
A
tough to answer, the main reason I installed this battery is that it was the only one that fit in my engine compartment. I also have a HU alternator and a 10 farad capacitor in the system. I am powering 2 JL amps. A 750 mono & a 300X4 4 channel. For your application, it would depend on the make, quality & type of amp. A and A/B are analog amps, they sound good, but suck power like a starving vampire. Digital amps are extremely more efficient with power, I would go to the biggest battery you can afford and will fit in your trunk, Stick with XS Power, they perform great and are made by John Deere. REMEMBER1 There is no such thing as TO MUCH POWER! hit me up if u have any other questions
[ john  Apr 18, 2015 ]
A
The battery did not fit well in the factory location. So I sent it back. I 'm using the factory battery which is working out ok. I just can't play the radio to long without the engine running.
[ MARK B  Apr 07, 2015 ]
A
yes it can handle up to 2600 watts/amps so it will easily power 1200 watts since it maxis out at 2600 watts/ amps should use 1/0 gauge wire to hook up two batteries.
