Meet Stromtank 2500 MkII. No-Compromise Battery takes your System Off the Grid
At True Audiophile
One of the most important facts to hear the excellent quality of your audio-components is the purity and stability of the grid signal. Daily routine equipment like PCs or microwave influence the grid. Everyone is connected to the same dirty grid polluted with DC voltage, high level and frequencies. All interferences manipulate audio-quality and even the best power conditioners are not able to eliminate the disturbances.
The heart of all the Stromtank units is the innovative battery technology known as lithium iron phosphate (LFP). Stromtank uses a special type of LFP battery that offers maximum power delivery, extended battery life, voltage stability, and intrinsic safety. The lifetime of Stromtank batteries is ensured by a battery management system that was specially developed in conjunction with the Fraunhofer Institute in Nuremberg, Germany – experts in efficient battery management technologies.
Each individual cell provides feedback to the active battery management system.
• Active balancing of all cells in the array to maximize efficiency of discharging and charging cycles.
• Inspection of temperature, voltage, current load and state-of-charge of each single cell
• By monitoring and managing the battery array, the system is completely maintenance free
Digital Distortion Suppression (DDS) at 1 outlet
- Eliminates digital interferences from source devices
- Avoids backwards interferences from sources to analog devices
- External 12V trigger allows user to toggle between ON/OFF grid mode.
Warranty: 3 Years

“Stromtank has been conceived to become an ultimate solution to clean power supply. It operates with no dependency on power grid quality, providing the purest possible voltage to electronics. It proves once again – and it does so in a rather unrivaled way – that it is the power foundation that lifts up the good systems to the great ones.
Are the Stromtanks expensive? It´s relative. They were designed for audio systems – including power amplifiers – not only for front end components. Often we pay substantial amounts for filters or isolation transformers that only work on players and streamers, and are forced leave the amps on the ‘dirty’ grid not to lose dynamics and punch. Not with the Stromtanks.
Also, one can deduct few thousand of Euro from the Stromtank’s price right away. This is the budget that would be necessary for a good power cord if another power conditioner should be acquired. There is the rule that the best power cord one can afford should be placed between the wall receptacle and the power center of a system. The Stromtank does not really care about the power cord that feeds it. It is only used for recharging the batteries, the components will not ever see it. An ordinary PC cord will do the service. In fact, as I mentioned earlier, the Stromtank can be completely disconnected from the power grid. Do it as an experiment but do not use it like that – I guarantee that once you will forget to plug it back in and the batteries will be drained. But the message is clear: your audiophile circuit breaker means nothing to the Stromtank. Spend your money elsewhere.
However, the strongest argument for the Stromtank appeared in the introduction of this review: it is the power foundation which is essential and which lifts up the good systems to the great ones. In my opinion the Stromtank beats any power supply solution that is on the market today, active or passive. I’ve got to get one…”

"I can't imagine one being disappointed with the performance of the Stromtank. And I'd bet even those audiophiles will hear an improvement in their systems because of the pure sine wave of battery power that the Stromtank delivers. The Stromtank cannot be compared to other power conditioners on the market because it isn't a power condition. It is power. Period. And that's the beauty of the Stromtank. Recommended? Are you kidding?"
