    $100 plus shipping. Give me a zip and I can calculate.

    This is basically a hybrid between a car battery and a car audio capacitor. Provides the juice that a battery would, but recharges faster.

    It was professionally installed in my 1986 Honda Accord with a Memphis Car Audio MCA-3004 and a MCD1000. I am very conservative on the volume knob, but could easily power the car and the electronics by itself from a cold crank - my buddy bought two; it kept a '97 Cadillac daily driver running with a 2000w amp pounding away for a month before we discovered the main battery was dead. Replaced the battery, and the Kinetiks are still going.

    Minor scratches due to the pro shop being cheap on the install (bastards). Otherwise works very VERY well.

    You can also have the 'thingy' that was attached to it when I removed it. I'm not an electrician, so you can figure out what it is (or tell me so I can stop wondering)

    It's a relay.

    Care to elaborate on the function in this application? Is it supposed to make the power cell take over when the battery isn't enough?

    As I said earlier, I didn't do the install for obvious reasons.

    Well, it's purpose is to only allow power to a certain component (probably your amp or an after market light setup) when another component recieves power. In this case, your ignition or your HU probably supplied the power to the relay.
