These sort of extreme weather conditions, be they boiling hot or despairingly cold, wreak havoc on the chemical-based batteries in cars and trucks. When these batteries fail, they leave many people in dire, often dangerous, situations. But thankfully, inventor Bryce Gregory decided to remedy this problem.
Joining us on this Smart Power podcast by Ioxus, we welcomed Bryce Gregory, director of field application engineering and product management for Ioxus.
uSTART isn’t a battery, it is a technology, an idea—an ultra-capacitor. This technology stores energy independent of the battery store. Capable of starting a vehicle whilst supporting its full electrical load, the uSTART can perform in extreme temperatures. With sturdy construction, the uSTART is designed to perform for a lifetime. =
“We wanted to make this thing last as long as the trucks it goes in,” Gregory said.
No fancy installation necessary, the uSTART is simple to integrate with any vehicle battery. uSTART longevity and ease of install make it an environmentally-friendly and service-friendly invention.
“There are many places [where] batteries are used in the world that aren’t starting vehicles,” Gregory said.
With that knowledge in mind, he foresees uSTART technology making its way beyond just vehicles and trucks, and into heavyweight equipment and boats…anywhere “where reliability is very important.“
