What is Skelstart
SKELSTART is a starter battery based on Supercapacitor. With this starter battery, it is possible to reliably start any engine, regardless of its size, at any place and at any time and repeatedly, even at -40 °C. The supercapacitors used in the starter battery are an energy storage technology comparable to batteries. Their strengths are 60 times higher performance than today's batteries combined with outstanding reliability, even at extreme temperatures. The service life of more than 15 years (over 1 million life cycles) allows maintenance-free use and thus a reduction in costs, maintenance cycles and complexity. As a starter battery, the Skelstart is therefore significantly more reliable and more cost-effective overall than previously used starter batteries.
For armored vehicles, the Skelstart fulfills all current and valid MIL-Standards. The Skelstart can be equipped with a CAN-BUS interface, which is currently still in the development phase. For all other non-military applications, the Skelstart offers the same advantages in the form of an existing standard version.“
