Dead batteries are a fact of life when it comes to boat operation and ownership. Periods of disuse, temperature extremes, corrosion, shock and vibration take their toll on the engine’s cranking battery. With KBI’s range of specialized engine starting products that equation has changed forever. Using the permanently installed KAPower Starting Module (KSM) or the portable KrankingKart Mini HD, it’s now possible to have onboard, reliable back-up reserve starting power that’s always there when needed. Unlike lead acid batteries, KBI products rely on super-capacitors, which are maintenance free, they operate from -40°F to 185°F with no reduction in output. With a lifespan of over one million cycles and 20 years, they are truly set and forget.
Jump-startcart, utilizing super-capacitor technology, never needs access to A/C power; charge's from a cranking battery (even the rundown battery it is jumping); and fully recharges itself from the just started engines' battery in less than 30 seconds.
KrankingKart Mini HD
The KrankingKart Mini HD is a portable start pack housed in a rugged ABS plastic case, which is waterproof to IL 67 standards, it even floats. With its digital volt meter, 1500 amp output, built in reverse polarity protection, 6 foot long cable and heavy duty clamps, it's designed for operation in the toughest jump starting environments. Available in 12 and 24 volts and several capacity ranges; all units recharge after use in a scant 30 seconds.
KSM KAPower Starting Module
The KSM KAPower Starting Module uses super-capacitor technology for use as an auxiliary and/or emergency power source. KSM is an auxiliary power source that is installed in parallel with an engine's cranking batteries, providing consistent starting power. Installation for the KSM is straightforward; its' stainless steel enclosure is lightweight; supplies 112 kW; and only weighs 32.5 pounds (the heaviest model). The KSM can be mounted in any orientation, even upside down. No maintenance is required. Available in 12 and 24 volts.
