Re: XS Power SuperBank (capacitor)

Insane for what it is. Picks up very little space and can make such a big difference. Feels almost like an empty box. That's going to take you over 1 hour to charge with the included charge light.. I allowed mines to charge to 11.8V, then touched it direct to batt to charge the rest of the way and ...

Re: XS Power SuperBank (capacitor)

I had recently came across a video of me demoing my system and the volt meter was dropping to 12.xV everytime the bass kicked in.. sadly, I had deleted the vid from my youtube channel. That aside, I can now play the same music at the same or even higher volume and the voltage holds steady at where e...

Re: Tech Thread - Ford Ranger

I read online the 8.6L spec was for the 2.2L model as well, so I wasn't sure which it really was. Also heard of the oil pump priming issues for the 3.2 model. The recommendation is to not drain for longer than 10 minutes when doing a change.

Re: Carpentry, Joinery and woodworking Forum

I had my eye on the Oneida cyclone as well, read great reviews on the performance of it. The included blade has a pretty thin kerf, so I am pleased to see that.

Thanks for the pointers, will keep them in mind!

Re: XS Power SuperBank (capacitor)

I also have another video with the car off and me continuing to play the music at medium volume level.. it took around a minute for the voltage to fall back to battery resting level at ~12.6V. Also took 1hr and 10mins to do the initial charge on the damn thing! These capacitors are no joke..

XS Power SuperBank (capacitor)

Re: Would you be comfortable with an air conditioner that uses a highly flammable refrigerant?

So when can I try one of these?

For an explosion to occur, you need to have an optimal mix of fuel and air.. so even if there is a small leak, that does not mean anything will catch fire / explode. Once there are benefits to using this type of refrigerant, I'd go for it.

In case anyone was wondering, the regular gas bought from petrotrin has a RON of around 90. I got that info direct from an NP lab technician. He also mentioned as they are NOT going to be importing regular, only super and premium when petrotrin closes..

Re: Price drop on the 2018 CRV ? Yeah, right !!

The AWD (4x4) CRV is closer to $400k ($39x) iirc. A similarly equipped 1.6L Turbo AWD Hyundai Tuscon is $320 or there about.. and the Tuscon isn't a bad buy either.

Re: Price drop on the 2018 CRV ? Yeah, right !!

That's a pretty decent price. I believe a fully equipped Rav4 can reach $400k and that last one I drove had a boring interior. The torque specs from that 1.5T though.. I like them!

(868) 698-CPEP (2737)
Call that number and select the option for DART

or try CEPEP DART direct at 800-CPEP

I got through with the first number. CEPEP handles dead animal removal now.
