Did this video help you?

Ken MacMillan: What's the point of this?

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!

Adam Keith: how are you recharging them? Im guessing the alternator would blow these up?

ThinkingBetter: 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.

Lorne Thomas: Interesting. Any thoughts on this?

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 system.

bhstone1: How are you able to engage a starter and turn over an engine with only 10V DC? Most starters won't engage unless you have at least 12V DC.

Oliver Whinnett: I don't get it. What's the point in this?

patrick donegan: How long will the charge hold for? Every day? One day a week driving?

leerman22: Would the current leak even though the car is off? I leave my gps plugged in and the capacitors wouldn't be enough. Maybe if I add an "Emergency Booster" button to my car for the winter that engages the capacitors only when I need the extra amps to start in the winter.

cmares5858: A mini boost pack would be great to have in the trunk as an emergency backup!

HardWayLearnt: At 0:40 how did you not get electrocuted when you touched both terminals? 

Paul Handley: 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!

ProgPalace: You wear the same clothes everyday? :)

Ff Geoff: 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. 

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

Ryan Toomey: 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 capacitance. 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.

John Puccetti: All the new research is with capacitors. I think this is the future.

TheSRBgamer63: Easy to start warm engine lol,how about at winter ,also how about diesel engines :P,that ur car have some small engine i guess,bigger engines will need more power to start.

Richy GC: Bet it wont start a diesel :)

whanson3503: 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

ssuuppeerrbbooyy: 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).

InvisibleYetVisible: Does putting six 2.5v caps in series not cause problems? Thats 15v? Don't cars only really have a tolerance of up to 14v roughly?

apeek7: 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 alternator???

Protectprep: Puny capacitors are for girly men. This bank below is a bit manlier …. Bank of 20, 450 Volt Nippon Capacitors. Total Volt: 9,000 Total µF: 48,000 Weight: Approx 50# http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=321463321132

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???

Brett Hruska: Wow this will shave a ton of weight.

Kello Tao: will try this

Ben Hurd: Try a 3.4 liter v6 or a small block

bf386tr3gf38: they can switch on your car one time, but in case of missfire, you will not be able to start car, because capacitors discharge fast...

bax442: Great test!

thefront: It'll work as long you don't need a continuous crank to get it started like many older cars do. Though this works, it's not practical compared to the price you can get a regular car battery for. Especially if you look at recycled ones.

MXStar189: chickens i hear them thats sweet road island reds?

Can Celik: hey man, can we hang out together weekends? :) these are brilliant. 

Rangerman9404: I'm wondering how it would handle a high demand situation, like a car with a high powered sub woofer amp, or a car that's usually driven at night with all the lights on

Vanianfew Few: I can see me having capacitors all over my house,including my chicken loft.

Iraqis Tube: Well, you can use this for just few times and if it not a rechargeable batteries it will explode while the car is working because the dynamo charge the battery when car is working ... but if you replace it with rechargeable batteries I think it will explode too because it is the same volt but the the mAh are different. 

Johnny Benson: Hello LaserSaber Great video you have shared ! I am curious to know how you prevent the caps from being overcharged given that the alternator immediate charges the caps once car is jump started with tons of amps.

Larry198s: would be great too not using gas, gas these days are high,

staticnetwork: Perhaps you could install an electric motor in a car and use your super capacitors and a gas generator.

Cody Grant: Your car is dirty as crap.. You need to clean that up a bit. 

Robert J. Wiltshire: Reading all the negative comments is disappointing. Hearing all the people reject this potentially awesome improvement is like listening to addicts reject change. Yes the battery has it's pros, is it the end all be all, probably freaking not.

Carl Williams: Come on you know we're not allowed to be energy efficient. You're going to get us all in trouble. Anyway, good one, that's pretty interesting, makes sense though. I look forward to seeing your research.

wahtah955: Hey i'm thinking about a farm application. There are several things electric tools like a drill, saw, sprayer, etc that you need power for 5-15 min pulling up to 7-9 amps. Plug it into grid or off grid system to charge then take into the field with your tools. Maybe one you can hold around your shoulder, if you need to walk around or climb with it. Do you think supercapacitors/boost packs can be be effectively? thanks!

Kobe Wild: that's great an all. but caps have a limited amount of charge.. leave your headlights on for 10 min's and you won't be able to start your car... 

rataretrodos: Hey! Great happy chicken eggs!!! Nice idea bro!!

qazmatron: Ultracapacitors have high series resistance. You can't get 100 amps to start the car.

matthew counter: maybe you could hook up one of them chickens to start your car....

r trump: I like this, try using the crystal battery set up though the lighter to keep it charge

Reynaldo Amador: How much? where can i order?
