SAN DIEGO, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Maxwell Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:
MXWL), a leading developer and manufacturer of ultracapacitor-based energy
storage products, today announced that it will exhibit at the Mid-America

Rugged, lightweight and maintenance-free, Maxwell's Engine Start Module is a
group 31 form factor that delivers the quick-burst power big engines need to
crank in extreme weather, down to -40 degrees Celsius. The ultracapacitor
module, which is being evaluated by more than 20 truck fleets, delivers power
for hundreds of thousands reliable starts, and in most cases, will outlast the
vehicle itself. Other features include easy installation, overall system power
performance and lead acid battery life extension, leading to low total cost of
ownership, improved driver safety and on-time delivery results.

"For trucking professionals who work in freezing weather, run hotel loads on
batteries, or sit in line at weigh stations with anti-idle laws, the
limitations of batteries for cranking power are all-too familiar," said Dennis
Flynn, director of market research and brand communications at Maxwell
Technologies. "Preparing for these challenges sets trucking pros apart from
their competition, and the Engine Start Module we'll share at the Mid-America
Trucking Show arms operators with power to spare."
