The APU is an Electric Power Cell (epc™) that is integrated into vehicles (cars, trucks, RVs, boats, aircraft, etc.) to supply AC or DC power at varied ranges and frequencies. The commercial APU uses the vehicle fuel supply and is integrated into the vehicle electronics. In use, the APU provides auxiliary power for vehicle comfort features and added functionality and eliminates the high fuel consumption, wear and tear, and emissions associated with the long idle operation when on-board electricity is being generated by running the main drive engine. The APU also provides exportable, plug-in power for contractors, recreation and more.

APT is currently developing a family of APU products for military and commercial applications.
