XS Power XP2000
Supplemental 12-volt battery for car audio and marine applications
Our take on the XS Power XP2000 by Crutchfield's Dominic Devito
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.
Power for mobile or marine applications
Looking to give your vehicle a little extra "oomph," power-wise? XS Power's XP Series batteries deliver reliable supplemental energy for your high-performance car audio system and hydraulics. They also make a great solution for your boat or RV's auxiliary electric needs, or for just about any application outside the engine compartment.
Advanced AGM technology
XP Series 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. 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.
Designed to fit nearly anywhere without leaking
XS Power's compact XP2000 12-volt battery provides up to 2,000 maximum amps and has a capacity of 80 amp-hours. It'll provide a big boost to your car audio system, and it offers ready reserve power for your boat or RV. You can even use it for non-vehicle applications, such as emergency lighting, alarms, and more.
This battery's compact size lets you get creative with your installation. Since there are no external vents on an XP Series battery, you can mount it in a passenger compartment, below a seat, or inside a glove box without fear of leaks — no more worries about 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.
Need more help choosing the right battery for your vehicle?
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.
Note: XP Series batteries do not have reinforced casings and are not recommended for daily under-the-hood applications.
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.

Overview: The XS Power XP2000 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. It is not designed to be installed under the hood or replace the OEM battery in your vehicle.
Terminals Needed: This XP-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).
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, XP-series batteries are installed in the trunk or hatch of the vehicle, close to the amplifier. It should be wired in parallel (+ to + and - to -) with your vehicle's battery. A second battery install kit, such as the XS Power AK2000, can be used to connect the XP2000.
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.

- Maximum Output: 2000 watts
- Reserve Capacity: 150 minutes
- Discharge Capacity: 80 Ah (amp hours)
