10F 2.7V Super Capacitor

• Electric Double Layer (EDLC) Super Capacitor
• Quick charge and discharge provides energy fast
• Wide operating temperature -40 to 65°C
• Very low ESR and 2.7V rated voltage
• Design UPS, battery replacements or power back-up systems
• Applications include automotive, alternative energy, toys, wireless, LED lighting
• Can be configured in series and parallel to build higher voltage power arrays

Supercapacitor, also known as ultracapacitor, supercondenser, electric double layer capacitor (EDLC) or pseudocapacitor, is an electric capacitor that has an unusually high energy density when compared to common capacitors, typically on the order of thousands of times greater than a high capacity electrolytic capacitor

Compared to batteries, supercapacitors are capable of more than ten times the power and more than thousand times the cycle life. These are two main reasons why engineers choose them over batteries in different applications. Supercapacitors are proven energy storage devices that can replace conventional capacitors or batteries in many applications that require much more energy than what conventional capacitors are able to provide and that also require higher power outputs that batteries cannot provide
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Im very pleased Love those caps, gives great boost to my sound system, conected in series - 12V/2.5F Just want to warn you, DO NOT reverse polarity or overcharge, it will smoke up the whole flat! Also avoid short circuit, they giving lots of power, and they can get damage. Planing to get bigger ones, hope maplin will sell 3600F caps.

Do you know the maximum specified discharge current of these caps before the smoke escapes? I'm looking for some arrangement of power supply that can dump up to 2.5 amps for three or four seconds before the voltage wilts too far.

when I click on 2.7v 10f capacitor it comes up as 2.7v 10f but shows a 2.7v 50f capacitor. the capacitor i am replacing is made by nesscap. would the 10f and 50f make a difference?? the board it is going into is for a small weather station

Asked by: bbbb
The image is for illustration purposes only, this product code corresponds to the 2.7v 10f version of this capacitor style.
