Lake In The Hills, IL- Dead batteries are a simple fact of life when it comes to boat operation and ownership. Long periods of disuse, temperature extremes, corrosion, shock and vibration all take their toll on your engine’s cranking battery. Unlike a car, jump starting a boat isn’t easy, it usually requires especially long and heavy jumper cables, finding and hooking up a battery charger or removing the battery and taking it someplace where it can be charged.
With KBI’s range of specialized engine starting products, however, that equation has changed forever. Using either 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 contain no liquid; 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.
Installation for the KSM is straightforward, its stainless steel enclosure is lightweight, the heaviest model, which supplies 112 kW, weighs only 32.5 pounds; it can be mounted in any orientation, even upside down.
The Mini HD is portable start pack is housed in a rugged ABS plastic case, which is waterproof to IP 67 standards, it even floats. With its digital volt meter, 1,500 amp output, built in reverse polarity protection, 6 foot long cables and heavy duty copper clamps, it’s designed for operation in the toughest jump starting environments.
Both the KSM and the KrankingKART are available in 12 and 24 volts, and several capacity ranges. All units recharge after use in a scant 30 seconds.
