In very cold climates the Supercapacitor will deliver up to 3 times the cranking amps of any lead acid battery. In hot desert climates our Supercapacitor starter provides up to 6 times the service life of a lead acid battery.
Polar strongly recommends using Supercaps in extreme weather installations, helicopter and remote access sites, and where battery theft is a problem. The cost to replace a single lead acid starting battery at helicopter access or a remote site grossly outweighs the procurement cost of a Supercapacitor. The configuration of our Supercapacitor starting system makes them impractical for starting automobiles and trucks reducing the theft value.
The long service life of the Supercapacitor solves the problem of maintenance crews frequently installing improper (but convenient) starting batteries that provide poor starting reliability.
