-Maintenance-free operation and "life of the vehicle" reliability
-Industry standard Group 31 battery form factor for easy integration with battery systems
-Built-in quick charging system (15 minutes or less)
-Green technology with no heavy metals or toxic substances requiring special recycling

Unlike batteries, which produce and store energy by means of a chemical reaction, Maxwell's ultracapacitor products store energy in an electric field. This electrostatic energy storage mechanism enables ultracapacitors to charge and discharge in as little as fractions of a second, perform normally over a broad temperature range, operate reliably through 1 million or more charge/discharge cycles and resist shock, vibration and overcharging.
