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 they are being pushed to the limits with today’s electrical demands. The situation gets worse as the demands increase and will make the dependence on the lead-acid battery for starting your engine a risky scenario.

The KAPower Starting Module contains everything you need to never experience the effects of a dead battery again. This comes from the KAPower technology found inside. KAPower is a Supercapacitor (a.k.a. Ultracapacitor) and when installed on a vehicle, down time from a “dead” battery is ELIMINATED.

The device is initially energized from the vehicle’s electrical system and stores the energy until needed. Even with “run down” batteries, the KAPower Starting Module gives an engine the power it needs to start. It is virtually unaffected by temperatures and is completely maintenance free. KAPower Starting Module has a long service life, upwards of one million cycles without the loss of cranking power, compared to an average battery’s life of 300 - 500 cycles. It may even outlast the equipment it is installed on. Thousands of units are in service and have been operating effectively for many years.

The KSM can be installed on most vehicles, or pieces of equipment.

KAPower
Providing

ShimELIMINATE 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.

KAPower AdvantagesVehicles 2
Asymetric Nickel Carbon Proprietary and PATENTED asymmetric design allows more energy compared to symmetrical ultracapacitors due to the intrinsic two-fold increase in capacitance.
"DEAD" Battery Starts KAPower is the ONLY supercapacitor (ultracapacitor) design that allows an engine to crank regardless of the state of the batteries.
Full Recharge In 30 Seconds Recharges to 100% capacity in as little as 15 - 30 seconds.
Virtually Unaffected By Temperatures Military tested and approved for engine starting applications as low as -40° F.
Long Storage Life KAPower is the ONLY supercapacitor (ultracapacitor) design that will hold its energy for upwards of 2 years without needing a charge.
Simple Design NO voltage balancing between the cells. KAPower requires no sophisticated electronic controls as with symmetrical designs.
Weight Reduction A single 120kJ KAPower has roughly the same power as 4 Group 31 batteries. Lead-acid batteries can be removed while increasing cranking power.
Low Internal Resistance Unlike lead-acid batteries, KAPower's internal resistance has a low dependance on the state of charge (SOC).
Contains No Lead Suffers none of the drawbacks associated with lead-acid batteries.
Long Life Maintains cranking performance for upwards of 1,000,000 cycles and has a 15 - 20 year life.
Safe KAPower uses potassium hydroxide as an electrolyte. The same electrolyte used in most common household batteries.
Easy To Instal KAPower has several PATENTED methods for installation depending on what power needs are trying to be achieved.
