XS Power XP950
Supplemental 12-volt battery for car audio and marine applications
Our take on the XS Power XP950 by Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
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. 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 XP950 12-volt battery provides up to 950 maximum amps and has a capacity of 35 amp-hours. It'll provide a big boost to your car audio system, and it offers ready reserve power for your boat or UTV. 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 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.
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.
time will tell but so far its feeding the amps as rated.

XS Power XP950 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The XS Power XP950 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 AK1000, can be used to connect the XP950.
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 XP950 has the following specifications:
- Maximum Output: 950 amps
- Reserve Capacity: 50 minutes
- Discharge Capacity: 35 Ah (amp hours)
- Dimensions: Length=7.68", Height=6.61", Width=5.12"
- Weight: 24.5 pounds

No it's not. this is a 12v battery. You will need a special 48v battery or 4 big 12v battery's. They probably make a 48v battery for the golf cart you have. [ Douglas Apr 07, 2017 ]
For a system that totals 1,100 watts RMS, the XS Power XP950 would be a great option to give your vehicle's electrical system a boost in performance. This will ensure your amp(s) receive the necessary current needed to produce optimal sound quality in your car audio system; and that your headlights or interior lights aren't dimming when you turn up the volume. If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. I hope that helps! [ Larry Oct 05, 2016 ] Staff
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Kenny Feb 10, 2016 ] Staff
