1 Year Payback Time
-40°C Lowest Reliable Starting Temperature
10 Year Minimum Lifetime
2X Fast Cold Cranking Time

Advantages & disadvantages

Reliable Starting

  • Much higher peak power than batteries can provide
  • Temperature won’t affect starting power
  • Starting power even with „dead“ batteries – If SkelStart’s energy is used, it needs min 9V and max. 16 min to be charged from empty to full.

Battery lifetime increase

  • Starting power doesn’t come directly from batteries
  • More energy stored by the end of the work day
  • Battery lifetime will be increased 1,5 – 2x

Fuel consumption decrease

  • No need for idling to charge the batteries
  • Measured example: Idling fuel consumption from 6% to 2% = 400L/year

No hassle – one time investment

  • Lifetime 1M cycles (10+ years), no maintenance needed
  • Warranty 6 years

Easy installation

Starting the engine is the single most demanding task for batteries, which leads to batteries malfunctioning and being the root cause for most engine starting problems for a few reasons:
  • limited working temperature range
  • short lifetime
  • prone to malfunctions if idle for long periods of time

Technology

Our Engine Start Module is based on Skeleton Technologies’ patented and industry leading SkelCap ultracapacitor technology originally developed for the European Space Agency.

The same technology is used also in Formula 1 cars, trucks and even passenger cars to power Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems and start-stop systems. Our ultracapacitor technology has been tested in the toughest environments and proven to stand strong against the elements.

Now we have made this leading edge technology available for your business
through our SkelStart Engine Start Module.
