About

 

 

KOMA is the only jump starter charged instantly through 8 D-type batteries. Equipped with a patented voltage booster circuit, KOMA maximizes battery power to start any automobile from convertibles to trailer trucks. Portable and ready in an emergency, KOMA ensures that you can find your way home.

 

 

 

KOMA’s core technology is its Joule Thief circuit, a power generation system re-imagined from the lead-acid and lithium-ion jump starters currently available on the market. A voltage booster circuit, the Joule Thief takes a steady low voltage signal and converts it into a series of high frequency pulses at a higher voltage.

Existing lead-acid or lithium-ion jump starters rely solely on the power discharged from the external battery supply to charge the vehicle enough to start the engine. This can require a starting current of 500A and max current up to 4,400A. KOMA starts at a steady 200A and maximizes charge in the vehicle battery far beyond when other circuits consider the battery dead, thereby allowing it to start.

By preventing the current reversal phenomenon and maximizing the power of the discharged battery, power that was deficient in the battery is immediately supplied upon start of the ignition. Don’t be fooled by claims of max current and ampoules, KOMA provides all the power you need.

KOMA’s amplified voltage output can power any vehicle engine up to 25 tons in weight and 450 HP. More than enough for the Ford F-150, GMC Sierra, Chevy Silverado and most Commercial Trailer trucks.

Not just automobiles, KOMA can start motorcycles, RVs, commercial forklifts and even small boats. Whether using KOMA on the construction site or to rev-up your lawnmower, have piece of mind that your battery needs are covered.

 

 

No need to understand car mechanics or electric wiring. KOMA takes you from stalled to started in 3 steps and under 30 secs. or less. Skip complicated steps such as checking for sufficient voltage. Simply follow the intuitive steps. 

 

 

 

When restarting a car, safety comes first as you are dealing with a massive electric current. Powered by disposable battery, KOMA’s power source provides protection from discharge or spark while posing no risk of over charging. Reverse current protection eliminates risk of shock from improper operation or short circuiting. KOMA is set to attain both CE & FCC certification.

 

 

Auxiliary functions such as flashlight and USB power banks are a drain on battery life. What happens when you don’t have battery to start your car? KOMA performs the critical function you need in times of crises.

 

Many drivers rely on road side assistance for help in the event of a breakdown. For AAA, you pay a flat yearly fee whether you experience a breakdown or not, plus add-on fees for services. When relying on 12V jump starters, there’s no guarantee it will start your car and for 24V you pay 3-4 times for less voltage output.

 

Put simply, KOMA is an exceptional, never-before-seen product that can jump start even large automobiles utilizing a minimal-charge power source. No jump starter before has been capable of starting 25-ton trucks using 8 D-type batteries.  

Jumping a conventional truck used to require a true 24V jump starter: Minimum weight - 40 kilos, minimum price point - $400. In controlled testing, even these jump starters can barely start the engine of trucks up to 15 tons. KOMA is not only small, light and inexpensive, it can start both cars (12v) & trucks (24v) without fail.  

In tests, KOMA has started tour buses (200+Ah), which is far more difficult than starting 25 Ton trucks which boast specs of 450 horse power and 170+Ah. I have never even heard of a portable jump starter that can claim this capability.  

As claimed, KOMA has reduced the size, weight and price of the portable jump starter to 1/3rd. Even this claim is understating its performance.  

In the near future, we at GaGyoTech will utilize the core technology of KOMA to develop a jump starter capable of starting the engines of military grade vehicles up to 1500 horse power. This development will begin immediately post-Kickstarter delivery in September. No other company can claim their technology is nearing these capabilities.  

While not capable of fancy auxiliary functions such as charging your smart phone, in the emergency situation of a breakdown we are confident that the technology you will rely on is GaGyoTech’s KOMA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With over 14 years of experience in the automotive industry, GaGyo Tech CEO Yeongmin Park has developed a technology widely recognized, but never applied to the motor vehicle. Through partnerships with Professor Jeonguk No of Kookmin University, KOMA was developed over nearly 2 years in applying Joule Thief circuitry to a consumer-ready jump starter. Invested in by numerous governmental organizations and angel investors, KOMA is first being made commercially available on the platform Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges

The application of KOMA's technology is one that wasn't even thought of by the multi-billion dollar automobile industry. The technology to jump start a car through disposable batteries took 1 year 8 months to develop. We have undergone extensive testing of the circuit design on a diverse range of engines and can say with confidence that the technology works! However, our next hurdle is developing a finished product worthy of this tech. Through out the mass production phase, we promise to be diligent on quality standards and keep you informed through out.
