Ohm – Smart Car Battery – Video
For as long as we can recall, vehicle batteries have been pretty standard. They are those heavy cumbersome boxes that you replace every few years, and pretty much do everything they’re supposed to until, one day, they don’t due to her job. But now, Ohm, a new high-tech development company, is here to change everything we know about vehicle batteries. It weighs slowly 6 lbs, replacing lead plates with an EDLC high tech supercapacitor that can start your engine, and smaller batteries that offer energy when the ignition is off. Despite being much smaller, its casing matches standard battery sizes for proper fitting on the vehicle.
This smart battery uses technology to audit output and automatically shuts itself down when power is running lower then normal. Sure, your lights and radio won’t work at that point with the engine not running, but you will be able to get the vehicle started without getting stuck in the middle of nowhere and searching for a jumpstart. According to its creators, it is better equipped to run in low temperature climates thanks to its ability to deliver juice bursts directly to the engine. Even better, the Ohm has an expected lifespan of a respectable 7 years, which makes current batteries obsolete. Currently in beta testing phase and raising crowdfunding on Indiegogo, its manufacturers’ future target price is around $200. That may by higher than batteries you use today prices, but long-term savings are guaranteed.
