Not really sure about it. They haven't gotten back in touch with me yet. Seem a bit slow or uninterested in my application. Our starter is really easy to get at and replace quickly. It's about the only thing on the engine that is super, super easy access. For us, a spare starter or this would be equiv. In most applications like lifeboat or pumping stations, I believe they are saying the Springstarter is the only/primary starter. That makes sense as it should be easy to keep the mechanical energy wound up in the Springstarter whereas a battery would slowly bleed off.
