 CAPACITOR

DOES THE NAME OF THE CAPACITOR MAKE A DIFFERENCE? iM CONSIDERING PURCHASING THIS CAP. ANYBODY KNOW IF THE CLAIMS ARE TRUE?"What is the Power Bank Capacitor? Conventional capacitors consist of a sandwich of two plates with a middle layer of dielectric substance. Poweramper's Power Bank Capacitor is an electric double layer capacitor consisting of activated charcoal electrodes and organic electrolyte. Because of extremely large effective surface area of the activated charcoal electrodes, the Power Bank Capacitor can hold a far greater charge than aluminum capacitor. "

Carbon alloy capacitors are more like a fast discharge battery than a capacitor. This is the reason the have such a high farad rating. Farads are determined by how long it takes to discharge the unit with a set load. The internal resistance of a carbon alloy type is higher than a normal electrolytic capacitor. This means that the electrolytic capacitor can charge and discharge much quicker than a carbon alloy type. If your system needs a battery the carbon alloy may be an option for you. If you just need a boost for musical peaks, a normal Stinger type capacitor will be better. Just an example, the internal resistance of an Alumapro CAP is 26 ohms; a common electrolytic capacitor is 0.00001 ohms. A Stinger Power2 battery is 31 ohms. If you measured the Stinger battery, it would be about 2000 farads. Get the picture????

WTF? capacitors are rated in farads, which tell about the amount of charge they hold at capacity. Any quality cap will discharge very quickly, quick enough to supply power as fast as you need it. it has nothing to do with discharge time, or anything else. IMHO, most cars do not need a capacitor, unless you are only going to listen to hiphop. If you listen to even a slight variety of music, then save the cash and invest in a bigger alternator. Loads of benefits and no losses.

 to chis no one else

you moron what theses guys are talking about is so far over your head....... do u even know how or why a cap works??? if not then shut up because that is what this disscusion is about. not terms or weather or not his car needs a cap. if he dident need one he would nnot be talking about the diffences between them and if he dident know what he was talking about he wouldent even know what a activated charcol cap was. to all you other people sorry you had to hear that.. and good luck
