I saw this and thought this is an interesting potential concept for the
future of automobiles.

Автор ssuuppeerrbbooyy (3 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 christo930 (7 месяцев)
I would assume you are getting a very modest increase in mileage from not
having to charge the lead-acid battery? My guess would be that it's in the
range of 2%? The problem with caps is that they tend to not hold their
charge very long. I wouldn't expect the car to start after sitting for a

Автор whanson3503 (4 месяца)
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

While the car is running the alternator is charging the booster pack - I

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.

They can provide about 300 amps briefly so yes they will work - if you
discharge them too much they are so power hungry they will read almost as a

can you fast charge it with a crank ? i mean capacitors can chage up faster
than a battery, so all you would need is to run the right crank.

Автор Corolla Toyota (6 месяцев)
the battery lead could recharge it again while the car on , but the one you
made could stars your engine 8 - 10 times or a little more then it will die
, because you can not recharge it with electricity or new power to stars
your car later, , but the lead one could use it more than 2 years ... the
one you made could helps some person have a battery problem for while till
he buy new one after he get salary paid ... thanks

Автор Nickolas Davies (4 месяца)
you need to add a diode to prevent your lip battery charging from the
alternator, and install a 12v balance charger as the lipo has zero
tolerance for unregulated charging, just my opinion if you want to protect
the battery and also consider some sort of metal box for fire protection as
lipos can go bad.

but keep up the research your already 99% their, thanks for sharing

Question: What happens to the charging semiconductors in your car? Lets

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

1 farad caps being used for smoothing car audio and they were huge too...
also low voltage. I'm confused...help!!

lol. yes there is hesitation. you near it crank twice before the engine
starts. my 2003 camry starts up like that too with a normal battery. if
your car was cranking 3-4 times before starting or crank slowly, it means
your battery is weak. there is something called a crank current. get your
battery tested. if it's too low it means your battery can't deliver the
correct current.

Good experiment.
What he didn't say was that in engineering, you have to give up some
characteristics in order to gain other more desirable characteristics. If
he doesn't go anywhere over the weekend, the car will be dead. Also, the
car had better start on the first go, because if it doesn't, it won't have
the power to try again. These are the luxuries he gave up for 30lbs of
savings. As the caps age, these characteristics may get worse. He also
shouldn't run the radio or keep the key on for any reason.

Don't you need to be extremely careful with those exposed terminals on such
a huge capacitor bank? I'd be worried about carrying around such a large
charge. Do you discharge it before taking it out of the car and handling it?

Depending on the leakage rate of the caps you may be able to put a small
solar panel and charge controller on the car to keep the cap topped off.
Probably still lighter than a traditional battery.

I like the sock!

would it be suitable for house lighting, or is it just to shunt the engine?

Yea, replace your big heavy Lead-Acid battery with:
1) Boost-Pack
2) Solar cell to keep it topped off.
3) Jumper-Cables
4) Rain Poncho - to wear while you flag down someone to jump your dead
boost pack because of (vapor-lock) while you were in town.
5) Carry a bright blinking light. Who cares about the radio. It's a safety
hazard to stall on the freeway without lights.

You want to keep your battery for long duration power, but having something
like these as a sort of emergency jump starter would be no doubt helpful.
