Or a Stinger HPM Series SC201MNC

I like the KnuKonceptz because it is small and conpact as for the stinger my friend got one and it look pretty cool

Any comment will be great

The cheaper, a cap basically is a cap. Nothing really special. Either one should be fine.

If size is not a problem with your install, then go with Stinger. It has lower ESR.

I don't know much about caps, but I know if you're comparing two of similar size ESR is about all that matters.

The Knu states .00198
Stinger .00175

That amounts to a voltage difference of .023v at 100A - basically nothing. I wouldn't pay $5 extra for the stinger, let alone $50.

Get the Knu, hands down.

It's not that simple. Knu's cap is almost 5" wide and 5" tall. Depending on your trunk/install location, you might not have the space.
Like quality in electronics, if you want the best, they'll make you pay.

if you have an edequate charging system then i wouldn't worry too much about a cap. if you don't, then i'd worry about the charging system before i'd worry about anything else.
