Another SC scam

Another piece of lies from SC scammers.

Care to tell me what the cost of a simple Kwhr of storage with Maxwell supercaps is?

Facts are SC will never be used for anything but very short pulses of power.  Nor do they mention the expensive electronics needed to produce that power to a load because to get it's full power, a cap/SC needs to go from full voltage to 0 volts so not only are SC ungodly expensive themselves  but expensive to use.

And there are batteries like A123 that over 1 minute output easily creams SC's output by I bet 1,000x's of the cost. Even in the 1 second range A123 beats them in practical operations.

Even lead batteries/Bolder type beat SC's hands down on specific power of any length.

I'd like to be able to charge my mobile devices quickly but also have better battery efficiency so I don't have to repeat the process every 4-hours or less during high usage.

So would I Cabe.  Care to say how you'll be able to do it with these?

Though you could charge your ph, etc much faster will a better charger in under 10 minutes and use it while charging.   Or carry a battery to recharge it anywhere.  Both are far better than supercaps.

First the costs is 100x's and  multiple times more space vs present lithium batts. Would you like your device to be 10x's larger for the same run time?

Again get your requirments and get a quote on how much it'll cost.

Notice Maxwell hasn't answered  my 1 kwhr cost question because it will show how useless they are.
