though I'd mention something postive for once. yesterday I was in the Walmart lot watching a family try to get their truck started. it sounded like a dead battery.
a van pulled up and tried to give them a jump to no avail. I have a feeling the battery might have been past life and not taking power very well.
I realized while watching this that I had a bank of Maxwell ultra capacitors in the trunk. 3 parallel strings of 6 in series give the bank a max voltage of 16.8v and 350F a cell works out to 350/6*3 is 175F
I was a bit worried because the bus bars arnt as shiny as this pic.
