    Default Capacitor & Battery-less Jump Starter

    Interesting......



    More Detailed Look.....



    I'd think a Hybrid Unit would work well, Say 6 Capacitors and Lithium Ion Battery in the one unit.
    Surprised Vehicle Manufactures don't include Capacitor Assisted Starting in Batteries for Sub Zero environments or high cranking needs.

    Wow, so many Aussie Manufacturers hitting the US market now.

    Capacitors:
    Pros: Fast Recharge (from your flat battery), Low Temps like -40c make no difference to capacity.
    Cons: Short Burst Discharge, One shot wonder

    Lipo Starters:
    Pros: Multiple Re-starts from a single charge, Smaller
    Cons: Slow Recharge time, Could be flat when you need it, Reduced Performance in low temps like -10c.

    So after all these years, all we needed was some 370uF Caps in the glove box

    A Capacitor Starter be very handy for a 996cc V-Twin bike, they hard to initially crank, but once they turn, its ok.
