About the XS Power D545
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 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 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.
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.

More details on the XS Power D545
Overview: The XS Power D545 is a 12-volt battery that is designed to be used as a supplemental power source in your vehicle. It can be used to provide additional power for your car audio system, or can be used in marine applications.
Terminals Needed: This D-series battery does not come with battery terminals, so you will need to purchase the proper terminal adapters to fit the inner diameter of your power ring terminals before installing. 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). You could also choose the Short Brass Post Adapters (#580) or the Long Brass Post Adapters (#586).
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.
Installation: In typical car stereo applications, D-series batteries are installed in the trunk or hatch of the vehicle, close to the amplifier. The Stamped Aluminum Side Mount box (#514) will allow you to mount the battery cleanly to a side wall. A second battery install kit, such as the XS Power AK1000, can be used to connect the D545. It should be wired in parallel (+ to + and - to -) with your vehicle's battery. Should you decide to mount the battery under the hood, you will need the MC-D545 Protective Metal Case to reinforce and protect the battery case. The 545 Billet Aluminum Hold Down (#516) can also be helpful in mounting the battery under the hood.
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 D545 has the following specifications:
- MAX Amps: 800 amps
- Cranking Amps (at 32°F): 240 amps
- Reserve Capacity: 15 minutes
- Discharge Capacity: 14 Ah (amp hours)
- Dimensions: Length=6.97", Height=3.38", Width=5.14"
- Weight: 11.01 pounds
