These two responses seems to be saying opposite things, so which is it?
Obviously there is no point in installing a ‘supercap’ on a lawnmower, if it is truly going to leak down after 3 months, or even 3 days, as madflower69 seems to suggest~~~
If I’m going to jump-start my lawnmower, I may as well leave out the battery & the ‘supercap’, and save those expenses altogether. I’m not trying to become an electronics expert, but if the leakage is truly somewhere around 3 days, I see no point in having ‘supercaps’ in that application. It is true my lawnmower may sit for months at a time.
Another quick question, the video of the motorcycle mentioned ‘cold starting’ at 24F, which is great, but what about heated applications? as if ‘engine mounted’ next to the starter itself, temperature might be 300F in that location, would the ‘supercaps’ work well in that environment?
