This is a hoax. There wouldn't be enough current for long enough to start a
car. You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool
ALL the people ALL the time!

The capacitors should be hooked up in PARALLEL, NOT IN SERIES, because with
capacitors in series the total capacity is the reciprocal of the addition
of the reciprocals of each capacitors, giving you a much smaller total
capacitance value, smaller than the value of the smallest capacitor. In
parallel, the values of capacitors add up to give you a much larger

For example, if you have 10, 10 Farad capacitors in series, the total
capacitance value will only be 1 Farad, but if you have them in parallel,
then the total capacitance value will be 100 Farads.

It's a great shame that people don't do the basic calculations of the
energy involved in so many experiments like these. Car batteries are needed
because they provide much more energy headroom for ensuring the extra
energy needed to maintain power to the alarm system, remote lock when the
car is parked and for starting an engine in freezing weather.

Автор HandsomeStranger1963 (3 месяца)
i don't have the patience to read all the comments. but as for the
capacitors losing voltage if the car is not used for a few days why not
just keep a small solar panel on the dash or mount it permanently. This
would easily and cheaply make the capacitors a very reliable car "battery"
and let you leave the radio on all day and still be confident to start up
first time every time.

I don't pretend to know whether boost capacitors could make the traditional
car battery obsolete. All I know is that undamped voltage spikes can
destroy some very expensive auto electronics. By design, batteries appear
to play a role in circuit protection.

To his credit 'lasersaber' did carry out voltage drop measurements and
actually use the device in regular service. Could be a handy emergency
start booster if kept charged. Much more testing needed before you risk
your car or trust the device in cold weather.

But beware! Check your auto insurance policy. Exclusions often apply for
non-approved or non-original modifications unless first approved by the
insurer. Many modern cars are written-off after flood immersion due to
electronic system damage alone. This shows how costly a boost-capacitor
experiment could be if things go wrong. Amateur trials could void an auto
insurance policy in any claim for damaged electronics.

I don't understand your point. A new car battery costs about $100 which has
been used for a century. Your spent a few hundreds to do the same thing.
The caps have leakage which compare to the lead batteries are a lot. Leave
the caps on for a day and you can't start your car!

What's the lifetime of these capacitors if they are used in cars? Also will
they work for summer temperatures at 45C / 113F and Direct sunlight
temperatures at 70C / 160F ?

Автор ThingsDemystified (11 дней)
How this device could be useful is if you're stuck with a dead battery. You
could use a solar panel to charge it.

Автор mech223 (12 дней)
I would not recommend doing this. The series resistance of the capacitors
is probably lower than the battery, so it will source more current at stall
to the starter motor, which could unnecessarily stress it. The caps also
store less energy, so the system will be less reliable in situations where
there is a long time between charge and start.

Replacing My Car Battery with Capacitors

Автор whanson3503 (6 месяцев)
So, I stumbled across this and have a few questions. I drive a big ol '09
Crown Vic named "Vicky". I also live in the frozen tundra known to some as
"Minnesota". This year I was up in Duluth and it just so happened that day
it got down to -50. Now that's not unheard of, it does happen. I was also
running my car, ham radio and AM/FM radio for 14 hours straight. Yeah 14
hours without turning the vehicle off. Wait no, I did once and that was a
mistake. Only a few minutes of being off, I couldn't start it. Which I
found odd because the battery is really only needed to start the vehicle
right? Well here is my list of questions if you could be so helpful. I am
really considering looking into your mini BoostPack setup with the attached
battery pack.

* Would more caps be better?
* If I had such a setup, would i have been able to do a repeat of my Duluth
trip and be able to start the car even after turning it off?
* What are the ranges of temps that these caps could tolerate?
* I also have the Goal Zero Nomad 7. I'd assume that would be enough to get
some charge back into the caps if I needed or if I let it just sit on the
pack constantly?
* If the vehicle were to die, then what?

Sorry to ask so many questions, I am just very interested in possibly doing
this. Thanks for the help

Question: What happens to the charging semiconductors in your car? Lets
say you don't start the car immediately - you significantly deplete the
capacitor. At the last gasp the car starts...

Now you have an almost discharged capacitor drawing massive current from
your alternator. Are you at risk of damaging the diodes in the

Автор ssuuppeerrbbooyy (4 месяца)
Pointless to use this with a regular car.

Only hybrids and electric cars benefit from capacitors, because they can
store a lot of energy in short time, compared to lead acid battery. Then it
uses that as a buffer between the electric motor and batteries. Mainly its
used for energy recovery when you are braking. But that will be a thing of
the past with these new nanobatteries coming out (F1 uses them already, but
they are difficult to manufacture).

Автор dirty lowdown (1 месяц)
In a trash car like this it may work, but in the end you will still need
the battery when the car is not running , besides even if this works the
space issue isn't much of a problem either you use the caps or the battery,
capacitors weren't meant to be exposed to engine temps or weather, sooner
or later you will have problems.
