Can capacitors make the traditional 12V batteries obsolete? It’s hard to tell but, this YouTuber is definitely on to something.
Car batteries are heavy, big and most of the time manage to let us down when we actually need them the most. That’s why ‘lasersaber’ is conducting an experiment that involves replacing the bulky factory battery in his Scion with capacitors. Could the addition of a six-pack of capacitors make a change? Well, they take up less space which leads to a need of a smaller battery. However, all of this actually results in a pretty reliable start with no problems whatsoever.
The capacitors weigh take up about the same space as a single brick and weigh less than a pound. Check it out!
