Did this video help you?

Bruce G: from the chickens, the dirt drive way, and all the room - do you live in heaven?...bruce from LA area

Red Woods: BS

flavio romano: they normaly "recharge" by alternator like a battery do??

daniel anderson: how long did you leave those food containers in the floorboard??

Martin Stanworth: Of course. Choose a color (as long as it's yellow).

bear adams: can you make me one?

Martin Stanworth: I'm an electronics engineer. This is for the geeks
The equation is: Capacitance when connected in series as here is= 350 divided divided by 6 = 58.33 Farads. If the supercaps are charged to 2V each (by using a suitable voltage balancing circuit), available power is 58.33 coulombs (amp seconds) at 12V. For current required to crank an engine, let's guess fairly conservatively at 200 Amps. Let's say engine starts within 2 seconds. That would need 200 Amps x 2/ 3,600ths of an hour = 0.11 amp hours to start the car (once). That's not all that much energy. Can the capacitors do it? At 12V they can deliver 58.33 amps for 1 second or 1 amp for 58.33 seconds. Amp hours = amps x hours. So that's 1Amp x 58.33/3,600ths of an hour = 0.0162 amp hours. In other words it's about 1/7th of the needed power before the caps are totally discharged. Or another way to look at it is; they can turn the engine over for approximately 58.33/200 = 0.29 seconds. Just over quarter of a second. So no, it's not enough. BUT if you made it say 10 times as big (6 x 3,500F capacitors) it could start a quick starting car once. The "battery" would be maybe $900 at today's prices and the pack would be 10 times the size of the one in the video and your car would need to start within 3 seconds max, first time. This "battery" would also need charging (with special balancing circuit) every time you started the car. It would recharge very quickly though due to it's small capacity. Probably just a couple of minutes to recharge it. So this guy had a good idea but capacitor technology still is about 10 times too expensive to compete with good old lead acid batteries.

Vincent Smith: Hello, I am currently living out of my car in Florida. My biggest problem is keeping the car cool at night on the summer days. I'm curious if you have any suggestions how to keep an AC unit running for 8-12 hours with a power supply that won't drain readily that I can keep in the vehicle? Thank you!

Vitabrick Snailslime: I was reading all the disbelieving comments which were reinforced by all of the ads for "boost packs" associated with this video. At the same time I'm thinking, "Well, you just saw it and there didn't seem to be any trickery involved". When he came back from the radio test at the end, I'm thinking, "OK, still holding 10V, and the radio's still working, that's pretty impressive". But when the car then started straight away I lost all belief.

Samuel Bailey: Are they Battery Chickens or Capacitor ones?

Grant Short: So much lighter weight also!

Robert Policastro: at .40 he puts his fingers across the terminals! this is fake

Hutchentoot: Wow

Rah Tane: well done great job

soulmasterdw: if cars manual to realy test it should stop car from firing and drive it around on stater in 5th gear see how far u can get be4 it conks out....
on car uses 200cca bat with 600cca installed can do about 200m of driving on flat going 25kmhr

bryan916: The alternator will push way to many amps thru these little batteries and overheat them!!!!

salil na: Very interesting ...

jeremy varker: You sir are a con artist of the poorest degree.

azopene: ** CARTER=Foul Mouth White Trash. What would you grandmother say? I'll
bet she would wash out your filthy mouth with soap. I forgot to mention
power windows, the horn and brake lights, oh and the cigarette lighter
too. Is this a school night for you Carter? Well have at it. See how
many "freakS" you can get into one sentence. We'll all be waiting. You
are so entertaining and knowledgeable too.

Red Woods: 12 cans of Spam connected in series works better.
