An alternative solution for the electric energy storage market

Wide operating temperature range (- 50º C to 50ºC). Very long operating lifetime (+ 10 years and up to 1 million cycles). Easy to install. Safer to operate (non toxic or inflammable products). Low production costs.

The need

Starting the engine in heavy trucks is the single most demanding task for batteries. Moreover, cold weather reduces battery performance.

The solution

The C2C supercapacitor has the ability to provide quick bursts of power and to reliably operate up to millions of charge-discharge cycles even in extremely cold weather. By replacing one battery for a C2C supercapacitor, exclusively dedicated to the start up function, trucks and buses can always start their engines even in very low temperatures or if batteries are seriously discharged.

The value proposition

• Competitive purchasing price compared to other supercapacitors.
• Eliminates "no starts" from a "dead" battery in any temperature range.
• High reliability.
• Higher number of start attempts possible.
• Low operating and maintenance costs.
