Default Integy Xapper

I am considering purchasing a battery voltage enhancing Xapper by Integy. Does anyone have information regarding this product before I get it. I would appreciate both positive and negative inputs for the Xapper.

Positive feedback- It does actually make the packs 'slightly' more punchy.

Negative feedback- If you have a weak pack, the chances are that Zapping will kill the packs big time! Catch them while the packs are still new!!

Yes any Zapper will kill packs that are ready to go, a plus is that if a zapper will help your new packs stay better longer.... and it will weed out the bad cells for you.

Any word on when the can zapper option for this will be out? That's what I'm waiting for.

If you Xapp a pack, would it increase the voltage for the whole pack? If you Xapp cells individually, wouldn't it then unmatch the pack?

Yes, killing weak packs by using a zapper is not unique to the Integy machine!

I think they're waiting for certain laws of physics to be repealed...

Trips That was my thought as well, but I had to look at one for under $200. It probably won't cause the lights to dim either.

Yeah. I'd like to get one, but they are over $600. That's why the Xapper caught my attention. They have a module for it that claims to be a can/mag zapper. I find it hard to believe it will do much drawing such little current.

I suppose if anyone can make a working magnet zapper in that size it would have to be Integy, but I know my Team1 magnet zapper is nearly four times the size of my DCX and weighs thirty or forty pounds. Each of the two coils alone in the Team1 magnet zapper is probably as big as the DCX, and about twice as heavy.

Trips, do you like your Team 1 Zapper, is it worth getting?

I've been completely happy with the performance of my Team1 zapper. I'm definitely a satisfied customer.

Is it worth getting? That depends on your situation. I fell it was worthwhile for me, no one I know has one and no shops in the area offer the service.
