A surplus house I occasionally buy from is offering these 2600 farad 2.6v "boostcaps" for $36.


They claim they are used in "electric cars, trains, electric streetcars, satellites, truck engines, etc." and that they have a retail price of $80 each.

Frankly, I've never seen a capacitor like this used in such applications. So I'm curious; has anyone else? I can imagine 6 of them being used in series to replace a 12v battery, but at over $200 that hardly seems practical.

If happiness is on your mind, here's a daily list to find:
 - something to do
 - something to look forward to
 - someone to love
 - someone to take good care of
 - and misbehave, just a little
