lizardmech Posted September 2, 2016 Share Posted September 2, 2016 I have been looking around at recent super capacitor products that have been released fairly recently, it would be possible to build a 200Wh pack, weight is around 4kg cost about $1400 USD. 200Wh doesn't sound very appealing vs 1000Wh you find on high end EUC however the capacitor has some unique advantages. Very high discharge rates 30A continuous 80A pulsed, charge rate is the same as discharge, you would likely find regenerative braking is much more effective and charge time would be 15 minutes or less. Additionally they don't burn like li-ions and would survive 10,000+ cycles. Do you think people would be interested in them? Price would likely come down a bit if enough EUC packs were being made with them. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
