New Product Offering from ADOMANI® Integrates Amperics Supercapacitors into Starter Modules for Commercial Fleet Vehicles
A Significant Subset of the Global Lead-Acid Battery Market, Predicted to Reach $70.7 Billion by 2023, can be Better Served by High-Power Supercapacitor Modules Alone or in Combination with Standard Lead-Acid Batteries.
CORONA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 24, 2019 / ADOMANI, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADOM), a provider of advanced zero-emission and hybrid vehicle drivetrain solutions and purpose-built electric vehicles, announced today its new, energy storage product offering with Amperics, Inc., an energy storage technology innovator, developer and vendor of advanced supercapacitor-based intelligent energy storage solutions. ADOMANI and Amperics’ collaboration started initially with the design and manufacture of an uninterruptable power supply product to support a new customer opportunity in the Far East. The relationship has grown into the preemptive identification, design and production of supercapacitor-based energy storage solutions for applications that show increasing market demand and have specific use cases that can benefit most from supercapacitors’ unique attributes.
The new ADOMANI Starter Module product offering can replace or supplement the ubiquitous lead-acid type starter batteries used in traditional combustion engines, commercial trucks, buses, on/off road construction and mining vehicles and generator sets. Without regular preventative maintenance, traditional lead-acid (LA) starter batteries have limited lifespans and failure rates are greatly magnified in highly-cycled applications, especially when used in harsh environmental conditions.The new ADOMANI Starter Module product with integrated Amperics supercapacitors (SCs) with their attributes of high power, very high cycle-life and wide operating temperature characteristics, offers a superior solution to lead-acid batteries either as a stand-alone starter module or in a hybrid (LA plus SCs) configuration. This week, ADOMANI will participate in the Advanced Clean Transportation Expo in Long Beach, California (Booth 1655) displaying a variety of electric vehicles and looking for pilot customers and applications for the new ADOMANI Starter Module.
Regarding this new product, Jim Reynolds, President and CEO of ADOMANI said, ”Having been directly involved in the sales of commercial fleet vehicles and their associated maintenance for many years, I’m very happy ADOMANI has a new product offering that can directly address a common maintenance and reliability issue that fleet managers of traditionally-fueled vehicles have to constantly deal with. The Amperics patented and proprietary supercapacitor technology we utilize can save fleets money and maintenance technician time involved with trouble shooting, starter battery replacements and dead battery jump starts and can significantly increase vehicle reliability and minimize downtime. The use of Amperics supercapacitors continues to be a significant differentiator for us and opens up new and disruptive product opportunities for ADOMANI in other energy storage applications that would benefit from highly reliable, long-lasting, high cycle-life alternatives to traditional batteries.”
Bala Padmakumar, CEO of Amperics said, ”While energy storage technologies have made great progress in the last few years with lithium ion batteries becoming well-known for electric vehicle traction packs, the fact remains that there is no single technology that works optimally in all applications. In high power, intermittent use applications that operate in unfavorable temperature environments, supercapacitors either as a standalone or in a hybrid configuration with another energy storage technology, can be the best choice. On a Total-Cost-Of-Ownership basis, they can be cheaper, smaller, more reliable and safer, than lead-acid and lithium ion batteries, in a diverse range of applications. The cumulative customer relationships built over decades by the ADOMANI sales team can be carefully leveraged for potential pilot deployments and future product sales as we advance our technology portfolio and build new product verticals.”
