Voltage Stabalizer

A volt stabalizer is supposed to draw static and discharge it into your battery. Some products also claim to improve power or fuel efficiency.

Has anyone installed one before? Is there really any benefit to having it? Thinking of installing, but don't know if it's worth the money.

Re: Voltage Stabalizer

So if I don't install ICE and guages, is there a point to installing a volt stabalizer?

Re: Voltage Stabalizer

well i guess if u nv mod anything den not really a need.... the reason y i install a voltage stabliser is cos after i add on all the ice gps amps etc... i use multi meter to chk the fluxtuation is 2v-3v which is a lot...

be4 mod when the car is brand new i did some chking and some reading on the net found tat if nothing mod its not necessary to use a voltage stabliser as the flutation is usually 0.5v - 1v which is accetable to mi i guess...

Re: Voltage Stabalizer

Okay, I caved and decided to try out this product after all.

I thought I'd post here and let the rest of you guys with cars know. Goodspeed here did the installation of a Pivot Raizin VoltStab on my car today.

It seems my aircon, radio and lights were draining a lot of power from the engine. Goodspeed and his friend were very professional about the installation, and demonstrated good product knowledge. Check out the link for his thread, and give him a call if you're interested.

I saw a noticable increase in acceleration response in the low RPM ranges after installing the VoltStab.

Re: Voltage Stabalizer

try taking it out and drive again, the feel will be the same! maybe feel better to keep it on bec money had been spent!

i compare two brands a few times already, put in, take out...test the diff...

the best result is that the eng is less noisy, provided you have proper ground wiries at the right spots. Do some reading on SUN products on the web.

I guess the best way to test would be with a dyno, I'll see if I can find any test data on the web later. I'm bought the Pivot system, not SUN by the way.

Re: Voltage Stabalizer

The saying goes ... if its really so good, y did the car maker not put it in ...

if a $100 plus investment going to improve fc, power ..... y did the car maker not put it it ....

end of the day... a better car makes it more sellable right?

If you want to invest, invest on handling items such as strut bars, sway bars, springs, better handling = more control; then the car can perform better. Wan FC, dun floor your acc la.

Thanks for your view powerup76. I installed my VS based on the reccomendation of friends who have installed one in their cars.

I've done a bit more digging into VS systems, and it seems the jury's still out on the effectiveness of this. To be completely honest, there are lots of opinion like yours who state that it is a load of complete bull*hit. There are others that says it works, and another bunch of people who claim that it works "some of the time" or under certain conditions.

What I have found to be in universal agreement is that VS systems are essentially a bunch of capacitors linked in series with the battery, and parallel with the rest of the car's systems.

This keeps the voltage stable across all electrical components, and reduces electronic noise. The main dispute is whether this improves anything at all in a vehicle's performance.

Well researched!!!

It reduce noise. same as what i claim in my earlier post.

btw i am using pivot and sun combination with 10pt ground wiries. Try diy yr ground wiries, you will get even better results in reducing noise (less vibration, i think).
