Supercapacitors for the Supergun

It is well known that supercapacitors can send out their entire charge almost instantaneously and are capable of millions of charge/discharge cycles without degradation. What’s more they have extremely low internal resistance or ESR and offer cycle stability in a wide temperature range – from +65 °C to -40 °C (batteries can’t perform well below 0 °C).

How to kill an ultracapacitor

When working within their specified operating parameters, ultracapacitors will provide a stubbornly long and trouble-free existence. Ultracapacitors will outlast most other electronic components in any given application, which is why they are the perfect power delivery device in the most demanding environments.

Using ultracapacitors in wind turbine applications

After designing capacitors for more than 20 years, it’s no surprise Chad Hall has a lot to say about ultracapacitors. Co-founder and VP of marketing and product management at Ioxus, Hall keeps a blog on the company’s website showcasing how ultracapacitors can benefit industries from automotive to renewable energy.

Advanced Battery Tech From Recycled Cigarettes

Warren Buffett popularized the notion of investing in “cigarette butt” stocks. That is, extracting one last “puff” of value out of discarded stocks trading below liquidation value. Well, get ready to put a new spin on the term.
