ELTON asymmetrical electrochemical capacitors are a new class of energy storage devices that fit the functional niche between regular capacitors and batteries. Electrochemical capacitors are able to quickly accumulate and deliver energy an order of magnitude higher than regular capacitors. In turn, compared to batteries, electrochemical capacitors have higher specific power and can last for over one million charge-discharge cycles. They do not require maintenance and demonstrate high reliability in extreme temperatures. These characteristics ensured increasing use of electrochemical capacitors in hybrid vehicles, engine cranking systems, quality energy systems and with renewable energy sources.

Cold Starting

Starting an internal combustion engine may be a major issue in winter time, particularly in cold climatic zones. Quite often, starting an ICE turns out to be impossible or may require significant effort and take a long time, which may cause disruption to the transport vehicle’s service schedule. Similar issues may also occur in warmer [Read more]

Yo Mobile

The project of a city car, dubbed the E-mobile, has involved several innovative technologies which will be used as the basis of a new platform for a series of vehicles.
E-mobile’s power drive will not rotate wheels but power traction electric motors and charge ELTON’s electrochemical capacitors.
E-mobile’s internal combustion engine with a generator [Read more]
