Sealey set to take jump start market by storm

Sealey is set to take the jump start market by storm with its new 12V Electrostart® Batteryless Power Starter, the E/START600.

This new model is very different to any standard battery operated Jump Starter currently on the market, whether it be a conventional lead acid battery or the lithium type which has been available in more recent years. The main difference is that the ElectroStart® does not have a battery inside. Instead, it runs with ultracapacitors (also known as supercapacitors or supercaps), and some clever patented electronics, which maximise a discharged battery’s voltage.

Thanks to its clever technology, the E/START600 requires just 5 volts to jump start a vehicle. Simply connect it to the vehicle’s discharged battery and the unit will display the battery’s existing voltage. It then draws power from it and energises itself fully within two minutes before pushing full power safely back through the starting system, jump starting the vehicle!

The ElectroStart® delivers 300A of starting power, enough to start a 3ltr petrol vehicle or a 2ltr diesel vehicle. The unit also incorporates a ‘glow’ feature making it suitable for starting diesel vehicles in cold weather.

If the discharged battery is holding less than 5 volts, the ElectroStart® can be pre-charged by connecting it to any healthy 12V battery from another vehicle, or via the supplied USB charging cable or 12V accessory lead.

Not having a battery inside gives the E/START600 notable advantages:

• It weighs only 1.4kg compared to conventional Jump Packs which weigh 10kg or more.
• It is small enough to fit in your glove box.
• It has an impressive life cycle of 10 years plus, without any maintenance.
• It does not have to be kept ‘charged up’ in order to be ready to use.
