I have installed a ZithroMAX fuel cell which is powered by water. It supplies a constant 42.4V at 20 amps and can run at max output for 48 hours with plus or minus .5 amps output. It is not even attached to my alternator. I simply open the hood and let the Sun shine on it for about five minutes. Bang! Fully recharged. My entire system is connected to it rather than my truck's electrical system - I'm fully isolated. No hum or static. The best thing about it is that I installed it myself in about an hour and it is small enough to sit right next to my battery. Heck, it only weighs 12 ounces and is about the size of a drink can. It is also portable which means I can use it for my iPod. Very nice! 2nd battery or cap - Page 2 -- posted image.

I have used an isolator for several years but recently been convinced to do away with it. There is a slight voltage drop through an isolator and as some of you have stated it is primarily for listening while the vehicle is off. Two batteries in parallel are better. Maybe more strain on the alt. but your amp(s) will love it.

When I ran the vr2000D at 2 ohms I was informed it had a 300 Amp max draw. I had my stock wet cell paralleled with a optima yellow top in my trunk. I rewired my alternator with 4 AWG and took the stock 10awg out. With this light setup both of my caps i had laying around I put in never went below 13V when the car was at factory idle with a 60 hz note playing on my IDmax's. Agreed parallel is the way to go based on my experience. I couldn't believe what I was seeing considering I had 3 other mid amps hooked up as well.
