It does not have to be Tavrima but I just need good one and info on it.
Tavrima gives 300v Supercaps up as 75 kW(2 farad) but you say kiloJules what is the kW?

I belive I can use it for EV and only Supercaps and no batterypack right?

Are they AC or DC sry those Supercaps are new to me? :-)

Are they new?

And what price did you have in mind?

I only found 125v at Maxwell's could work with 2 of them and maby more safety to have 2.

If its not too expencive. :-|

Hi Thor,

1 Joule = 1 Watt for 1 second. W = J/s

Yes, but you won't go very far. Search out BYU EV1 drag race car. Ran only ultracaps only.

Used, but good.

Make me an offer. $1100 each new, IIRC. Motivated seller here. Send it via PM.

Regards,

major

65kJ sounds like a lot of energy, but its only ~18Wh. At 81#, that's a lot of weight considering an 81# LA batt usually stores over 1 kwh. The supercap would just have all that energy available immediately.
