What do I need in order to use Boost Mode on my SuperSting™?

Short Answer: You will need 2 Marine Deep Cycle Batteries that are isolated OR 2 SuperSting™ AC/DC Power Supplies.

Note: For information on what kind of battery to use, please see this article. For more information on the AGI AC/DC Power Supply, please see this article.

Boost Mode using 2 batteries:

If using batteries, marine deep cycle batteries with ~50-100Ah capacity will work best. A second battery can connect to the boost connection to allow the full 200W maximum output. Boost mode is used anytime contact resistance is below ~1800 ohms.  

You will need the Main Power Cord and a Boost Power Cord (pictured below). 

Boost and Main Power Cables

Connect the Main Power Cord to the SuperSting. Then connect the Boost Power Cord to the Main Power Cord.

Power Cables Connected to SS for Boost Mode

Connect the Main Power Cord to one battery designated for the main power. Connect the Boost Power Cord to another battery that will be used for boost power. Isolate both batteries by placing them on wood or plastic. 

Power Cables Connected To Battery for Boost Mode


WARNING: NEVER attach both the SuperSting™ Main and Boost power cables to the same battery! This will short the power clips and can damage the cables and SuperSting™.

Note: Charging these batteries requires a deep cycle type charger with at least 6A output. Using a lower-cost trickle charger (<2A output) will result in incomplete overnight charges and low battery after 1 or 2 days in the field.

Boost Mode using 2 AGI SuperSting™ AC/DC Power Supplies:

You may also choose to use 2 AGI SuperSting™ AC/DC Power Supplies. It has been manufactured with the proper specifications for the main and boost power so that you can run on a small gas-powered generator (900W) using 120/220V AC power. The optional ground on the generator should not be used as this will cause a ground loop and potentially cause damage.

Important Note: Never attach these power supplies to AC power in a building as this will cause a ground loop and potentially cause damage.
