There is a lot of buzz about super capacitors 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 equals 800 wats. 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, 800-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 800-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(TM) 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(TM) 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(TM) 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(TM) 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(TM) 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 super conductor 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.
