The NSB 90 is popular with SPL competitors. Do not run one under the hood in a daily car though, they are not designed for that.

actually the nsb g3100 would work but for a daily battery the stinger/odyssey would work better. i have the nsb batt. and it is a bad a/s. i use it for my crx and burp 2 rd-3250's no problem.

There also talk of them being outlawed in comps, so check into it before you decide to use one in that manner.

The 90s are not known to hold up real well under the hood of a daily vehicle.

They've been popular in competition cars for some time now. And yeah some organizations are considering banning them b/c that battery is not intended for use in a car.

i am trying to read up on them. but it is confusing. they are 12 volt and from what i just read it is point less to have an alt bigger than 100 amp to charge them. can some one explain all of this?
i know they are not made for cars, y r they so different?

They are designed to run steady elecrical draws, like a phone system, alarm system or other constant voltage drain equipment. The sudden demands of a car amp is up and down, as you know. Thats what differentiates them from car batteries. And a typical charge in normal use is like a .5-2 amp trickle charge.

If you can get them, they are a good battery. I also heard that the company was not selling them anymore to the public, but only to companies. Doesnt make sence, but irc, thats what i read when reserching them myself.
