fortyninepages: If this is possible, wouldn't it have already been marketed and sold in
shops as an emergency start up battery? I know I'd buy one. Just needs a
case and crocodile clips.
Chevez E: So can I hook these up alongside my regular car battery? I have room for
both and would just like to be able to start my car in -40c weather. My
biggest concern is that the caps will end up discharging while i'm away as
I usually let my car sit for weeks at a time. So that's where the regular
battery would come in handy to keep the capacitors topped off. Solar panels
arn't an option either because snow.
Also, I imagine that I would need to hook this up in parallel with my
battery to prevent doubling up the voltage?
Andrew Lucky: this is fake, he turned on the car with his keys at 2:43.
electronicsNmore: Impressive since the capacitor bank is rated 16.2V / 58 Farads.
masso172: This is interesting, but what advantages would you say this has over a
jahnkeanater: All those eggs. makes me wonder if you know how to basic? lol
TheLuismondo: Capacitors in series divide the value of 1 of them by the number of
capacitors (if they are the same value)
Capacitors in parallel multiply the value of 1 of them by the number of
capacitors (if they are the same value)
So if each one of them is 350Fs and you have 6, you can either have 2100Fs
in paralel (you need them to be rated at more than 16 volts) or 58.3Fs in
Miodrag Zizovic: This post have been changed due my wrong assumption about working
principles of super-conductor. I apologize to video poster and others to
which found my post correct, and also I want to thank Sara Hearth and
oldwrench2000 who corrected me.
John Hobson: I've been a mechanic all my life and would have never thought of something
like this, I'm very impressed and for those asking what the point of it is,
now that I think about it, there can be a tremendous amount of applications
for something like this heck you may even be able to run your homes
electrical needs and even get completely off the grid which is what I think
I'm going to attempt, this has given me all kinds of ideas, THANKS !!!

Xiuhcoatl: just out of curiosity, you ever ran over one of your chickens by accident?
Richard Burns: Where the hell are you, Jurassic Park?!
Ryan O: yes a sock.. That will protect it from grounding LMAO... kiding, but really
tho! very cool video mister. I may try this but I have a jeep xj cherokee
and I run 2 optima red tops in order to run many different accessories on
my rig, lites, winch, inverter, camp fridge, etc... I wonder how this will
work for me all that concidr3d?
stan res: I find it hilarious that some people will watch this and then go out and
buy $100 worth of capacitors/parts.
Jack Doe: It is at this point interesting to point out that if the car can start from
nothing but a capacitor, then the alternator will supply the remaining
power after internal combustion has occurred and the linear action of the
piston has been converted to centrifugal forces by cam action and such
force is then transmitted through the belts to the before mentioned power
supply!, additionally, the difference in weight is massive!!!, CAPACITORS
START THE CAR!!!
Ken MacMillan: What's the point of this?
carne cruda: this is very interesting, but I also can't stop thinking about chicken soup
:D. I absoltley love chicken soup :) with crutons too!
Corey Schroedter: Curious how this would perform in a newer car, such as my 2013 Dodge Dart.
I've researched into lithium batteries and was considering cap batteries
also. This car has a huge amount of electronic components running on it at
just about all times (contrary to what that scion probably runs). I may
have to try this out just for craps n' giggles. I am tired of heavy ass
Peter Marreck: I like the part where he shamelessly features the chickens and their
ambient sounds. I could almost smell the chicken poo.
Terry Smart: Good Day,....How do you arrive at the caps you require??,....I have a
grandson with a motor scooter who needs jump starting from time to
time,..one of these would take my place!!,...but wh t would I need for 12v
4amp, with a cca of 56??
Is it possible??
larrybud: Don't forget that there's power drain in most car with alarm systems, so
it'd probably drain out in a day or two. While this is an interesting
test, I don't see this being feasible at this point.
Not to mention running utilities with the engine off, or in sub freezing
temps. Also, voltage with no load is meaningless.
Alexander Pivovarov: Replacing My Car Battery with Capacitors! 12V Boo…:
justin wells: this plus a decent solar panel it should work nice
J Cunningham: how long will the charge last with the headlights on. Although you wouldnt
get a ticket. A cars battery has to be able to run the headlights for
something like 120 minutes to be legal. The law is in place for
goatcheese guru: how much are these, and how can i buy the full boostpack?
Daniel Remy: Hey we tried to make this capacitor battery. Just like yours. But for some
reason . We couldn't solder them together in series. The solder just keep
needing of. Can you show a tutorial of how you made this device please....
USAEVANTOLICO: WARNING !!!!!!!!!! CAPACITORS CAN KILL YOU !!!!!!!!!!! SUE TO WHO SALE
THIS IS IN THE WAY. LAWYERS LOVE !!!!!!
emf4kv: 10:03 the alternator puts out more power than you will need because no
matter what you are using that is electric, you always need more than that
to be able to charge the battery. Otherwise, you will eventually end up
with a dead battery. The real question is what do you have to power while
the vehicle is not running. This pack is great for a car without an alarm
Todd Uk: 58 farads equals 58 amps for ONE second so what's going on here?
dereileak: the best setup is both a battery and a capacitor bank, as it will make the
voltage extremely stiff and never shift around
f18hornet: A quick question to those using language?
*¿How does using language make you look better?*
costiqueR: I think that the people don't know that the batteries are just big
capacitors , having exact same behavior on same dimensions/capacity. Guys,
don't discuss about this, the differences between capacitors and batteries
are coming from their fabrication technology.
Capacitors :1 F = 1 s4·A2·m−2·kg−1 = 1A*1s/1V so for 2 V (14V-12 V
interval) you need 2 F just to have 1A current during second.
Car battery: 100 A·h can deliver 5 A over a 20-hour period at room
temperature for same 14V-12V interval..
Let to discuss about 55Ah common car battery. Normal voltage for charging
is 13.5 V maximum 14 V and the lower limit is 12 V so you have 2 Volts
potential difference to work. 55Ah means 2.75 A in 20h. To obtain
equivalent capacity from capacitors you need 2.75A*20*3600s for each volt
so result is multiplied with 2. Result? 2.75*20*3600*2= 396000 F (Farads)
In this movie we see 6*350F=2100 F which is 200 times lower capacity of
the car battery.
What means this? Simple. You can start your engine with a capacitors
module, but just if everything is perfect and you are sure the engine will
start from first attempt. Don't expect to have energy remains for the
second try...or let calculate: starting current is 20A so you need 20*2=40F
just to have energy for a second. 2100F (total)/ 40 F => 53 s of full
functionality. Not too bad but sure not to change the car battery. So ...
Car battery is strong recommended, you can have a capacitor module just to
help the battery or to start cars with depleted batteries. Don't forget:
car alarm and other electrical devices have working nonstop so capacitors
will be depleted if you don't start engine often...
ro jo: my thoughts also caps need to be charged, and they do not hold charge long
enuff to start a car
AmIonArock: wonder what would happen in cold weather, when motor is real tight. I
think this is a cool experiment by the way. Not totally sure why, but it
seems to me like your trying to replace a car battery with capacitors
Chad Jones: That'd really cool dude
Patrick Bonneville: Those lil' capacitors can do amazing things, especially when you combine
them with something else (like your hybrid comment). That was a quick
start, good job!
Joseph Perrotta: Ya! Nothing like staring a car in the middle of the summer when the metal
is warm or shortly after its been running. Try that when its minus 20
sitting overnight see if their worth it then! If they were worth making
don't you think they would be selling these as an alternative?
rataretrodos: I have a question... is having those capacitors useful when an emergency
situation? like for when your battery runs down or your girlfriend's
battery runs out? mabe like for those little anoying sitations you know???
L3gion3r: find a way to use the eggs to start your car
Pi-hilist: Bro, Nice vid but...You shouldn't put all your eggs in one basket :P
mikeyd19841: Will the alternator keep them charged still? I wanna try that! Great video!
I dont know much about capacitors but i guess it is time to do some
research and watch your videos!
123bebebe: Actually this is good idea, but not as a replacement for a lead acid
battery, but as a reserve battery. You can just put super capacitors in
parallel with a battery, and add high current diode so capacitors won't
suck energy from battery
larrybud: In my next video, I'll start my car with chickens.
Oscar Diaz: the only thing i think is that those capacitors could mess up from the
constant charge or maybe your alternator messing up from doing all the
heavy lifting. But if that doesn't happen i guess you would save money.
Blakrex: I would've thought the alternator would ruin them.
Christopher Young: One question. How do you charge the cap initially without frying your
charger from the inrush? Also how come we cant hear the car starting and
the voltage doesn't dip when you start the car? hocus pokus?
ironmancdb: You have already saved 3 pounds of weight in your car by leaving your brain
at home thinking that this is 1)economical 2)efficient 3)plausible and
lastly but most certainly not least 4)true
