Maxwell Technologies Engine Starting Module
Looks like it replaces ONE (out of how many?) Group 31 start batteries. And then provides either 1800 or 900 CCAs, depending on model.
It's unclear, to me, whether that counts OTHER Group 31 start batteries in the same bank or not.
Two of our G31s in one bank -- already -- would provide 2300 CCAs.
Quick glance at their site, didn't immediately see costs for comparison...
Good weight savings, I think... at least for the installation chore. Can't guess if it'd be significant otherwise unless dealing with boatloads o' other batteries...
