SkelStart
Engine Module

SkelStart Engine Module is the most powerful module for engine starting applications in the world. It's based on Skeleton Technologies industry-leading SkelCap ultracapacitors, which have the highest power and energy density on the market.

But why would you need an engine module?

Batteries are the leading cause for engine starting problems because of their short lifetime and vulnerability in extreme weather conditions. The high current peaks that starting an engine requires can also damage your batteries.

Advantages & disadvantages

SkelStart Engine Module

Reliable Starting

  • Much higher peak power than batteries can provide
  • Temperature won't affect starting power
  • Starting power even with „dead" batteries - If SkelStart's energy is used, it needs min 9V and max. 16 min to be charged from empty to full.

Battery lifetime increase

  • Starting power doesn't come directly from batteries
  • More energy stored by the end of the work day
  • Battery lifetime will be increased 1,5 - 2x

Fuel consumption decrease

  • No need for idling to charge the batteries
  • Measured example: Idling fuel consumption from 6% to 2% = 400L/year

No hassle - one time investment

  • Lifetime 1M cycles (10+ years), no maintenance needed
  • Warranty 6 years

Easy Installation

The Skelstart Engine Module is installed between the batteries and the starter, which means the batteries are disconnected from the starter. We prepared 2 minute clip to show how it is done.

SkelStart Engine Module

Starting the engine is the single most demanding task for batteries, which leads to batteries malfunctioning and being the root cause for most engine starting problems for a few reasons:

  • limited working temperature range
  • short lifetime
  • prone to malfunctions if idle for long periods of time

Once SkelStart is installed, you can expect a prolonged lifetime for your batteries, which leads to more savings. No other parts or components are needed for the installation.
