There were some early hiccups with Voltstart. Some etreks got modules pogrammed for agm and visa versa. There were some wiring errors between the Voltstart module and the remote start module. Some were the result of operator error setup. The good news is that most of this has been corrected. The bad news is that the Etrek Voltstart trigger threshold has been changed fron 12.4V to 12.8V which significantly decreases battery run time before engine engagement.

The change in voltage trigger point only effects the first engine start timing. After that there will be no real change in cycle timing and overall you get the same amount of energy out of the system during the complete number of cycles and the final run after that.
