There is a lot of buzz about supercapacitors that are able to hold 5 or 10 volts of electrical charge for a few seconds under load. This is not going to replace batteries.
So… I asked my source, Nikola Tesla, whether a high wattage capacitor can be made? By high wattage (watt=volt x amps), I mean 300 volts times 5 amps which equal 1500 watts. Yes, this is a capacitor, not a battery. Yes, this capacitor can be rapidly discharged and charged over many cycles, but a discharge “governor” can be used to limit the discharge down to a trickle (less than 1 watt).
The “normal” automobile/car/truck battery is 12 volt/3 amp or about 60 watts. A “deep cycle” version is 24 volt/5 amp or about 120 watts. So, yes, this new, 1500-Watt Capacitor(TM) can be used to replace batteries everywhere; a scaled-down version can be used to replace commercial batteries (AAA, AA, C, D & 9-volt).
How is this new, fantastic capacitor made? Like many other technologies on this site, it is a new alloy that is designed to have the properties of being a High-Wattage Capacitor. The alloy can be very rapidly charged/discharged, like any other capacitor, but has much greater charge capacity. What about sizing? The 1500-Watt capacitor(TM) is 3 inches high and 1/2 inch in diameter; using two, or more, will increase the wattage available by that number. If this Hi-Wattage Capacitor™ is needed in an electronic device (circuit boards and other applications), it can be scaled down to provide high-quality Direct Current (DC) power to processes/processors that can be interrupted briefly, or can be used in a Tandem ByPass™ configurations where one capacitor is being charged, while the other is providing primary power; again, the capacitors, like any other, charge very quickly. This Tandem ByPass™ configuration concept applies to many different capacitors in serial or parallel configurations.
OK. This is the baseline. Here are two, of many variations. First, this new Hi-Wattage Capacitor™ alloy can be drawn into a wire and used to wrap things like a coil. Yes, this will increase the amount of watts that can be made available. Likewise, this alloy can be made into a foil and molded around a device needing power. It can also be flaked or powdered and embedded in resin or plastic and, still, be used as a power source. It can also be molded into complex shapes to provide power in very space-limited applications. Two, the Hi-Wattage Capacitor™ alloy can be used in conjunction with all of the new, alloys described on this page, but most notably with the coil alloy, the super magnetic alloy, and the room-temperature superconductor alloy.
This is not a chemical device. This is not a static electricity device. It is a capacitor, but it operates on a different principle; it, actually uses the air around it, to store power (think hot and cold air). With a minor modification to the alloy, this will apply to water as well; think Fluid Dynamics.
