Presently self-start two-wheelers, including motorcycles and scooters between 50 - 200 cc capacities, use standard lead-acid battery of 5, 9 and 12 Ah rating as the energy source. A battery is a well-known energy source, but it cannot supply a large amount of power in a short time. The size of the battery is decided based on the starter motor requirement. Further, deep discharge at the time of cranking reduces the life of the battery drastically as compared to normal use. Also, an extra factor of safety is provided for cold weather cranking performance, poor maintenance and end of live performance in view of deep discharge. Hence the battery becomes heavy and bulky. On the other hand, Ultra-capacitors can supply a large burst of power for short time but cannot store much energy, hence a limited number of starts. Decentralized Ultra-capacitors network is another major advantage in the future of automobile sector.
