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 KSM contains everything you need to never experience the effects of a dead battery again. This comes from the KAPower technology found inside. KSM 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 KSM gives an engine the power it needs to start. It is virtually unaffected by temperatures and is completely maintenance free. KSM 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.

Frequently Asked Questions



Eliminate the cost and down time associated with jump-starting
KSM's low dependence on the state of charge enables KSM to crank an engine with as little as 9 Volts. In addition, KSM can sit nonmetered for up to 2 years while still supplying enough power to crank.

Eliminate the costs and maintenance associated with starting batteries
KSM has a 15 - 20 year service life and is completely maintenance free.

KAPower AdvantagesVehicles 2
HIGH POWER CRANKING Supplies current 2 - 3 times greater than a battery only system during the critical seconds of cranking motor engagement.
ANTI-IDLE REGULATIONS Greatly increases performance and reliability when complying with ever increasing emissions laws.
LONG SHELF LIFE Virtually unlimited shelf life. Low self-discharge allows high power starts even after months of storage.
This ensures maintenance free performance over the life of the vehicle.
SIMPLE DESIGN No danger of overcharging. Requires no sophisticated electronic controls or switching equipment.
Virtually unaffected by temperatures. Maintains starting performance for over one million cycles and increases life of existing batteries.
WEIGHT REDUCTION Lead-Acid batteries can be removed. As a result weight reduction can be achieved while increasing cranking power.
