Sealey Elec­troS­tart 600 £179

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Product News -


The ma­jor­ity of jump start­ing so­lu­tions avail­able to­day rely on a bat­tery or other ex­ter­nal power source to kick your clas­sic into life. How­ever, if you’ve ne­glected to charge up the por­ta­ble charger it­self reg­u­larly, it’s no more use than the bat­tery in the car. For most clas­sics, once you’ve dropped below 10-11V, you’ve no chance at all of start­ing – un­til now. Sealey has used the lat­est ca­pac­i­tor tech­nol­ogy to cre­ate the Elec­troS­tart, which uses ul­tra­ca­pac­i­tors to store 300A and kick a life­less car back into op­er­a­tion. Re­mark­ably, the E/Start600 does this from just 5 volts – com­fort­ably avail­able in any ‘dim lights, no crank­ing’ sit­u­a­tion and also eas­ily ob­tained from a USB charg­ing point. It is pos­si­ble to charge the pack up quickly from a work­ing ve­hi­cle via the bat­tery or 12V ac­ces­sory port, and un­like tra­di­tional packs the prob­lems of bat­tery degra­da­tion are avoided. The 1.4kg pack has an an­tic­i­pated use­ful life of over 10 years. On­line or high street re­tail­ers 01284 757500
