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.
