Ioxus Launches Thin Cell THiNCAP™ iMOD™ Ultracapacitor Modules

Today we introduced our THiNCAP™ iMOD™ modules, which consist of high power, thin, flexible ultracapacitor packs instead of cylindrical cells. The THiNCAP iMOD series is ideal for power conditioning and automated guided vehicle (AGV) applications. With this addition to our product line, Ioxus is able to give customers the most extensive technology offerings in the industry.


The THiNCAP iMOD modules save space and weight, meaning users benefit from:

  • Reduced total cost of ownership as compared to batteries;
  • Longer life;
  • Higher cycle count;
  • Wider operational temperature range; and
  • Reduced maintenance requirements.

These modules are an optimal solution for power conditioning and voltage sag compensation in short-term uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). They protect against voltage disruptions and ensure a smooth power supply to factory equipment and mission-critical applications, including telecommunications, silicon and food production, renewable energy, hospitals and pharmaceuticals. AGVs and robotics also benefit from the quick charge and long life possible with modules. Charge times are cut in half and productivity and operating times are increased as the need for battery replacement or charging is eliminated.

Customers including Toshiba Mitsubishi Electric Industrial System Corporation (TMEIC), RICOH, Sanyo Denki and General Electric use the THiNCap iMOD modules for numerous applications such as power conditioning, copy machines, peak power shaving systems and more. With the ideal form factor and power capabilities, customers can improve application performance. This technology will propel Ioxus into new global markets.

  • uSTART® Lead-Free Replacement for Truck Batteries

    ONEONTA, N.Y.Jan. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ioxus uSTART® has received two fleet industry awards for sustainability by eliminating lead-acid batteries with its ultracapacitor-based, drop-in battery replacement.

    "With uSTART, fleets not only realize the benefits of improved starting reliability, there are equally important and real sustainability improvements from lead waste reduction," said Chad Hall, executive vice president and co-founder of Ioxus. "By replacing one of the batteries on a vehicle with a uSTART module, up to 15 fewer batteries are needed over the lifetime of the vehicle. This translates into 1,000 pounds of lead that will never need to be disposed of or allowed to affect groundwater."

    EU legislation on batteries is embodied in the European Battery Directive.  Its objective is to contribute to the preservation and improvement of environmental quality by minimizing the negative impact of batteries and battery waste.  As these preservation efforts expand, sustainable technologies develop to manage and mitigate these risks.

    Replacing a lead-acid battery with uSTART in a typical commercial vehicle creates measurable environmental benefits:
