An isolator simply checks if a battery is fully charged before allowing the secondary battery to be recharged...


That has nothing to do with the car not running, as the isolator serves as a charging switch.

a switch that keeps the batteries seperated from eachother... thus allowing u to play ur shit without the car running and not discharging the main battery.....

I would beg to differ, it does NOT stop power from coming from both batteries, it ONLY stops a charge from reaching the secondary battery before the main battery is charged.

Do your research homie, it is a simple idea, not a 2 way path.

The Battery Isolator.

The battery isolator is a device that allows the cars alternator to recharge the auxiliary battery while protecting the cars starting battery from discharging, if these batteries are simply linked together you run the very real risk of draining them both to a level that you can not start the engine

Battery Isolators:
Many people listen to their stereo without the engine running. This often leads to dead batteries and a vehicle that won't start. A battery isolator will let you completely discharge one battery without discharging the starting battery.

really? last i checked, it did keep the 2 batteries seperated if you wire it up right, the whole idea is to have the secondary battery running its own "system"

it will actually alternate power between the 2, only making sure the main battery always gets more of a charge, when its full, it works on the secondary battery, whoever told you how a isolator doesn't "isolate" the 2 batteries, was smokin some pretty good stuff.....
