If you have ever suffered downtime due to the failure of lead-acid batteries you know the event's cost is
more than just the purchase price of the battery. Lead-acid batteries have limitations and are being
pushed to the limits with today’s electrical demands. The situation gets worse as the electrical demands increase
and will make the dependence on the lead-acid battery for starting your engine a risky scenario.
KAPower may look like another battery, but it is NOT a battery. KAPower is a Nickel Carbon Supercapacitor
(aka Ultracapacitor) and when wired in parallel with batteries, down time from a “DEAD” battery is ELIMINATED.
KAPower is designed as an auxiliary power source to be installed in a simple circuit in parallel with batteries.
Even with “run down” batteries, KAPower gives an engine the power it needs to start. KAPower is initially
energized from the vehicle’s electrical system and then stores energy until it is needed. It is virtually unaffected
by temperatures and is completely maintenance free. KAPower has a long service life upwards of 1,000,000
cycles without loss of cranking power compared to an average battery’s life of 300 - 500 cycles. KAPower
may even outlast the equipment it is installed on. In addition, KAPower also achieves weight reduction while increasing
cranking power. Thousands of units are in service and have been operating effectively for many years.
KAPower is the only Electrochemical Double Layer Capacitor (EDLC) device that has been approved for engine
starting by the U.S. Military.
ELIMINATE NO STARTS FROM A "DEAD" BATTERY.
Eliminate the cost and down time associated with jump-starting
KAPower's low dependence on the state of charge enables KAPower to crank an engine with as little as 9 Volts.
In addition, KAPower can sit nonmetered for up to 2 years while still supplying enough power to crank.
Eliminate the costs and maintenance associated with starting batteries
KAPower has a 15 - 20 year service life and is completely maintenance free.
