no and no... run away from electric superchargers... its far to early in battery and electric motor technology to get such items for cars

Save your money, it's not worth 5 bucks.

If you want quality performance out of your car, save your money and get a real supercharger or turbo.

Interesting...that's the second question about the same topic. Who knows...maybe electric turbochargers are the next big thing...just not now.

I think car companies are working on that. Technically it's an electric supercharger since it isn't driven by an exhaust turbine.

They're using the someday-gonnabe-new 42 volt electrical system so the alternator & motor efficiency doesn't kill the benefit.

That super upgraded electrical system has been on the burners for a while..... I wonder if we'll ever really see it? The tremendous loads on 12 volt systems can't continue indefinitely.

That's such a tremendous change with implications throughout the whole car... I'm not surprised it takes FOREVER in R&D before getting into production cars.
