This can help to reduce distortion and improve the clarity of the sound.
Additionally, our car audio specific supercapacitor have a longer lifespan than traditional lead-acid batteries and agm batteries, which are commonly used in car audio systems. They can also be charged and discharged more quickly than batteries, which can be useful in high-performance audio systems where power demands can fluctuate rapidly.
Finally, the compact in style, which can be an advantage in a car where space is at a premium. This is the perfect solution car audio supercapacitor needs in electrical and is a good option for car audio enthusiasts who want to maximize their power output without adding extra weight to their vehicle.
JP60 SAFETY AND INSTRUCTIONS:
PROPER CHARGING IS CRUCIAL!
Charge before initial use. Be sure to read the instruction sheet for full instructions. Proper charging is crucial to the life of your Down4Sound battery. It is very important that the temperature of the capacitor remains cool with respect to the charge voltage. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN ULTRACAPACITOR BANK TERMINALS! Whether using the automotive post adaptors, bolts or screws, the tightening torque should never exceed 6 ft-lbs max on any Down4Sound ultracapacitor bank!
Never touch the power terminals as any residual voltage can cause fatal electrical shocks. Always check with a calibrated meter that the ultracapcitor bank is discharged prior to handling the ultracapcitor bank, please see the step by step instructions in this manual for the discharge procedure.
1 - Carefully observe the polarity each time you connect to it,DO NOT REVERSE POLARITY.
2 - Prior to installation or removal, the ultracapcitor bank must be properly discharged.
3 - Provide sufficient electrical isolation for operation above 50VDC (relative to ground).
4 - Protect surrounding electrical and conductive components from incidental contact.
5 - Do not operate above specified voltage or temperature range.
6 - Do not touch terminals while charged, serious burns, shock or material fusing may occur.
Please inspect the shipping carton for signs of damage prior to unpacking the carton. Report any damage to the carton, or the contents, to the carrier immediately. Retain all shipping materials until the ultracapcitor bank is fully inspected and determined to be operational. Do not use the terminals to lift the ultracapcitor bank out of the package. If any parts are determined to be missing or defective, an RGA number must be issued prior to returning the unit for repair or replacement. Please contact Down4Sound to request an RGA number.
Ultracapacitor banks are designed for years of maintenance free operation if handled, installed and used properly. These handling precautions should be observed.
1 - The only tools to be used on the ultracapcitor bank should be properly sized wrenches for the terminal and mounting bolts (hammers, chisels, files or power tools in general should not be used).
2 - Do not drop ultracapcitor bank invisible internal damage may occur. Use protective terminal caps while transporting the ultracapcitor bank or ensure that the ultracapcitor bank has been properly discharged before transporting.
Ultracapacitor bank can be mounted in any orientation and are qualified for shock and vibration. In addition, it is best to avoid mounting on or near significant heat sources such as engine exhausts or solar heated panels.
The ultracapacitor bank can be stored in the original package discharged in a dry place. Observe the maximum storage temperature as stated in the specifications. Discharge used ultracapacitor bank prior to stock or shipment. TEMPERATURE RANGE
Range, Operating Temperature: -40F / 149F (-40oC / 65C))
Range, Storage Temperature: -40F / 158oF (-40C / 70C) DISPOSAL
Always recycle according to local codes and regulations for flammable materials.
For best results ultracapacitor bank should not be exposed directly to the environment, particularly the avoidance of direct splashes should be considered. In systems with voltages greater than 60V it is highly recommended to use protective terminal caps. Ultracapacitor banks that are expected to see significant cycling should be mounted in free air or in a forced ventilation housing. Care should be taken to protect ultracapacitor banks in potentially corrosive environments and direct water splash or spray should be avoided. In all environments, the best possible performance is aided by using an anti-oxidation agent for all terminal connections. Careful design consideration should be given to the application to prevent the overheating of the ultracapacitor bank. Please refer to the operational temperature range on the data sheet and be sure to allow for internal heating of the ultracapacitor bank. If you require help with the design considerations and sizing please contact Down4Sound for assistance.
Ultracapacitor bank can be mounted in series and/or parallel with each other. Care should be taken to insure that similar capacitance is used for series chains and that if different type or age ultracapacitor bank are used in parallel configurations the differences in ESR are accounted for in your design. Appropriate size bus bars or cables and terminals should be used for the application. Please note, that to minimize system loses, the capacitors do not have fusing or internal circuit breakers, careful consideration in the system design should be taken to prevent over current. With the low ESR of the capacitors they can deliver very large amounts of current. The worst-case fault current should be considered when sizing the wire for this application. Thread locking should be done with star washers or an appropriate chemical thread locker applied to the threaded portions only. Care should be taken in cable routing to not impose undue forces(torques or tensions) on the ultracapacitor bank terminals. Only appropriately sized ring terminals or bus bars for the expected currents should be used.
All Supercapacitor / rultracapacitor banks should only be operated within their prescribed voltage, constant current and temperature, operating window. NOTE: Operation of above 149F/65C will void the warranty.
The car Audio supercapacitor /ultracapacitor bank should be kept free of dust and debris and cleaned at a regular interval. In inside locations, that should be no more than annually however this may vary with your particular circumstances. Outside location will be as needed. Once the ultracapacitor bank is discharged, proceed with cleaning with a cloth and a simple water/soap solution. Avoid the use of hoses or pressurized sprays. Once the assembly is clean check for properly torqued fasteners and note any damage to any of the housings or signs of internal damage and replace as necessary. In high vibration applications, fasteners used for mounting as well as electrical connections should be checked for torque every 6 months. DISCHARGING
Before replacing or disconnecting an ultracapacitor bank or individual capacitors they should be properly discharged to limit the risk of dangerous electrical shocks and sparks. Even a properly discharged ultracapacitor bank can naturally rebound in certain conditions. The provided lamp can be used to safely discharge the ultracapacitor bank by connecting one lead to the positive side of the ultracapacitor bank and the other lead to the negative side. After the lamp has dimmed out and cooled then it is safe to disconnect and remove from the system. The lamp can be removed and a shorting wire can be connected between the terminals of the ultracapaci-tor bank to prevent it from building up a charge. This should especially be done if the ultracapacitor bank will be sitting unused for an extended period of time.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS PRODUCT
This product has a metal housing. The metal housing is used to wick away the heat generated by the
lithium cells under high load to keep them cooler and so they can operate at higher efficiency. Metal also
conducts electricity and requires added safety considerations when using this product. This battery is
intended to be properly mounted before use. If the battery is not mounted it is possible for the battery to
shift during use and it could come into contact with metal causing a short to the battery. Extra care must
be taken when attaching ring terminals, bus bars, and other attachment. The insulated area around the
terminals and the safety bar between the terminals make accidental shorts much less likely to occur.
Make sure all wires and connections in the vicinity of the battery are properly insulated to avoid any
PROPER CHARGING IS CRUCIAL!
Charge before initial use, be sure to read the instruction sheet for full instructions. Proper charging is
crucial to the life of your Down4Sound battery. It is very important that the temperature of the battery
remains cool with respect to the charge voltage.
DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN BATTERY TERMINALS!
Whether using the terminal adapters, bolts or screws, the tightening torque should never exceed 6 ft-lbs
max on any Down4Sound battery!
Your new Down4Sound lithium battery is the industry leading lithium battery made for pulse discharge
loads. Lithium cells hold, in general terms, three times the energy density of lead acid batteries. However
they need careful management to be safe and provide a long service life. Fundamentally, they have
serious risks associated with them and these must be understood to avoid danger, loss of property, and
personal injury. Don’t let the size of this battery fool you, it is very powerful, and if not operated correctly,
capable of being very dangerous.
Be sure to check out down4soundshop.com for additional technical and product information.
You may mount the lithium battery in any direction as long as it is secured from short circuits and/or
movement. One word of caution though. This battery is very light and therefore it does not require a great
deal of force to hold it. Do not crush the battery with battery retention systems. The threads are M6-1.0.
Optional terminals are available. Be extremely careful when making connections. Remember there is no
low voltage disconnect, reverse polarity, or short circuit protection on the main terminals of this battery.
Further the power output of a lithium battery is four times that of typical lead acid batteries. Short circuits
will flow huge amounts of current instantly with the ability to melt metal.
Do not expose to temperatures above 60oC (140oF). Avoid mounting this battery in the engine
compartment if at all possible. Elevated temperatures accelerate the aging process of most battery types
and lithium batteries are especially sensitive to high temperatures. Open circuit voltage should be above
12V, when fully charged after resting for 8 hours. If it is less than this after resting for 8 hours, the battery
should be taken out of service and must be checked for capacity, cell balance, and State of Health before
To reduce the risk of fire or personal injury including burns:
- Do not over charge the battery (meaning exceed the maximum voltage OR amperage and remove the
charger once the battery is at 100% SOC.).
- Do not short circuit the terminals.
Use with alternators requires that the charging voltage be limited to 14.4V or less. 13.8~14.0 is
preferred for 12V models.
- Do not charge this battery with an alternator if the terminal voltage is below 10V.
- Contact Down4Sound for assistance before proceeding.
- Avoid high temperature. Never operate the battery in environments above 140o
F or if the battery itself
exceeds 140o F at any point. WARNINGS(cont’d)
- Lithium batteries contain flammable gases. Have a plan in place to respond to possible fire.
- Disconnect the battery in total before welding anywhere on the vehicle. Do not submerse in water. This
battery is not waterproof.
- Do not crush, puncture, or dispose in fire or water.
- Do not attempt to open, disassemble, or service the battery pack.
BATTERY MONITORING FUNCTIONS
The remote provides real-time monitoring and display of battery voltage, percentage battery
capacity, and the internal temperature of the battery.
- Low voltage alarm: The voltage display will flash in real time when the voltage is getting close
to fully discharged. Charge battery before the voltage drops below 10V. Do not discharge the
battery lower than 10V or damage may occur.
- High voltage alarm: The voltage display will flash as the battery is close to the maximum
charge. Do not allow the battery to over charge or damage may occur.
Low temperature alarm:
- The temperature display will flash if the battery temperature drops
below -20 C / -4 F. If the battery temperature is at or near this threshold it can be charged

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE REMOTE DISPLAY:
In demanding conditions of high amperage discharge, fast charging, and extended high
amperage discharge, it is important to monitor the battery to keep the battery from being
damaged. If the battery is discharged below the minimum voltage the battery will be damaged,
and such damage will cause the battery to lose performance and/or cause a dangerous
operating condition which could result in personal injury, equipment damage, or death. The
same is true if the battery is allowed to over heat, or be over charged. This remote tool is a way
to monitor the battery’s operation within the specified parameters without a putting restrictive
Battery Management System (BMS) that reduces the amount of control the user has over the
battery’s operation. As with all tools, it is only as effective as the user. If the warnings are not
heeded, or ignored the battery may become damaged, and this will void the warranty.
The remote monitor has 2 plugs, a Phone jack, and an 2 pin port. The phone jack is connected
from the remote monitor and the plug labeled “remote” on the face of the battery.
The 2 pin plug on the remote monitor can be used to connect the monitor to a 12V power
supply, (Example: the cars ignition system.) as a alternate power supply to keep the remote
monitor from using the battery’s power.
INSTRUCTION FOR USE:
Connect the battery with the remote monitor using the supplied cable.

To Change The Temperature Display:
The default mode of the temperature display is in Fahrenheit (Fo). If the button marked
“Temperature” is pressed, the display will change to the unit of Celsius (Co). If the button is
pressed again, it will return to the default display.
The JP40 Remote Display ships in the default setting that allows for plug and play use with the
JP40 battery. Initial programming is not required when you purchase this remote for use with
JP40. However, this remote is also designed to be used universally with AGM, Li-Po, LTO and
other LFP type batteries in many configurations. Although the programming details shown
below are accessible, they are only applicable to the universal remote model, which includes
the voltage and temperature sending unit that can be used external to any battery. This will
not allow for the accurate internal temperature readings you get from your JP40 Battery since
