If someone can point me to another thread about these companies that im about to mention that would be great. But ive come across some Batteries that are not in many threads being compared with others. And i would like to get some advice on these specific kind..

Shuriken SK-BT35

Stinger 680 Dry Cell Battery (Havent found many reviews)

Compared to

Powermaster D680

Kinetik HC800

Now I hear that Powermaster hands down is a better battery than kinetik but i seem to see it mostly in the Wall and Extreme setups.

Whats your first pick and are the stinger and Shuriken Garbage?

And do I need to charge these before use?

I can't hear you!

The Shuriken is built in the same build house that the kinetiks are built.   There is also another company that is building out of the same build house, that has made some changes over the Kinetik/Shuriken design.   They are called audioforce. is the sole retailer for audioforce and The V batteries, and the new Audioforce line of batteries is schedualed for release before the end of the month.

Just another option to consider.

I have tested the Powermaster D3100 vs the Kinetik HC2400 and the Powermaster had les of a voltage drop and provided a high current discharge to keep my amps happy and where they need to be to create power.

On a 600 amp current draw for 3 seconds the Kinetik would rest at 14.2 volts and fall to 11.6 and rebound to 13.2 after load was removed

The powermasters would rest at 13.6 and fall to 12.4 and rebound to 13.2.

I am yet to test the new audioforce products but I will be doing so in the next few weeks I hope!

Perfect thanks alot. With a new line coming out prices are sure to rearrange themselves so ill wait another week before ordering anything.

It's hard to find many reviews on powermasters products since they are not really sold on many of the major online stores. All i see are kinetik batteries with a convincing amount of reviews and stinger batteries with not many at all which was shocking considering their popularity with accessories. But from what I have heard from a couple sources online and other customers at shops who have had experiance with powermaster is if im trying to match up kinetik with a it on a certain size, powermasters "Numbers" will win hands down and usually the performance. But thats why im doing my research to find out for me.

Thanks again for the input!

Good luck in getting anything out of Stinger. During my installation I had a few questions that I sent to their customer service and they never responded After 4 tries, I gave up. I finished the install using their product, but I will have a hard time ever buying anything from them again unless it's to replace somthing I already have. I guess they rely on their dealers to answer their questions for them so they can spend their time counting the cash...posted_image
