I think these may just be a con.

Effectively , the most amps will be drawn from whatever has the least total resistance, that would allways be the batt.

It is in effect working like a tiny tiny batt in parallel with the main batt : ie snake oil.
It wont magiclly turn on for a boost when needed

Is that stated somewhere? I thought it was caps in a metal container. Never even thought it would add boost to anything.

Packaging and presentation is everything, no? Mo-powah? Who knows.. at least one guy (former roar champ) I talked to said he noticed nothing significantly different regarding performance. It does look cool though . If there is a difference to a regular old cap as we have always known, I'm curious to what it is.

Just a cap in a box.

Key is to mount it as close as possible to the ESC but I doubt it will do much.

I believe the xbooster doesn't provide the filtering that the normal capacitors provide, so the recommendation is to run both. I cannot speak to it's effectiveness though.

I have tested the Xbooster with and without in 17.5 and 13.5 and there is a difference in punch when you run it. Also seems to make the car not fade as quickly.

And yes the Xbooster is not used for signal filtering, you MUST leave the original cap.
