Ioxus, Inc., with the only 85°C rated product in the market, and the only fully integrated ultracapacitor design and manufacturing facility in North America, maintains the highest standards and delivers the most flexible problem-solving methods for storing and delivering power. Our Titan HT™ ultracapacitors were designs specifically to handle harsh mechanical, electrical, and environmental conditions found in transportation markets. We use a propriety electrode design to deliver the highest power density available. Ioxus ultracapacitors, also known as supercapacitors or double layer capacitors, are optimized for the highest performance with the lowest resistance possible. Lightweight and designed to last, they will drastically increase the system peak power when combined with high energy sources to optimize your product. They will prolong the lifespan of other energy sources, such as batteries, or they can act as a stand along energy source. Having no detrimental effects on the environment, Ioxus ultracapacitors are the epitome of green technology.
An ultracapacitor’s energy storage mechanism is a highly reversible process, relying on the movement of ions within an electrolyte. However, it does not make or break chemical bonds as a battery does, enabling very fast responses with the capability to deliver those responses hundreds of thousands of times with minimal change in performance. They are able to perform in a wide range of operating temperatures, from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius. One of the best things about our ultracapacitors is that they are completely maintenance free, with a long shelf life that does not require conditioning.
These unique characteristics enable the design engineer to improve the energy efficiency for dynamic power applications. Ultracapacitors can allow for the replacement of existing energy storage systems, but can also be paired with other energy storage devices for more highly efficient design. They are used to capture energy and to hybrid vehicles, light rail, locomotives, start large trucks, provide safety and reliability at wind farms, increase life and speed of material handling equipment, and other green energy technologies which are enormously important today.

Ultracapacitor-powered uSTART™ available for Class 3 - 6 Vehicles
ONEONTA, N.Y., March 28, 2016 -- Ioxus, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of ultracapacitors and energy storage products, announced today that the uSTART™ engine starting system is now being offered as the industry's only drop-in replacement product that needs no special wiring. The Ioxus ultracapacitor-based product is designed to do all of the things that competitive products do not, such as increasing the vehicle bus voltage by greater than 10% during crank, reducing cranking time for more than 20%, reduce peak current to the starter by more than 15%, reduce the cycling seen by the battery by more than 40%, increasing starter life by more than 30%, and provide a built-in jump start system that will allow users to charge the capacitor from adjacent "dead" batteries and eliminate stranded trucks. All without any special wiring—simply drop-in uSTART in place of an existing battery!
The uSTART system from Ioxus is a two-terminal product, eliminating the rewiring required by competitive engine start modules. One of the existing read more...
