I think because the calculations of the ultracaps were off by a few decimals.
maxwell rates their BMOD0063-P125 125v 63F at only 101.7 watt hour
that makes the earlier calculations of the 15v 50f at 5.6 kwh not correct.

Lessee now, 1/2 C V^2 = 0.5 * 50 * (15)^2 = 25 * 225 = 5,625 watt-
hours = 5.6 kwh (Right?)
Energy Available equals 1/2C (Vnom^2 1/2Vnom^2) /3600
= 0.5 * 50 * [225 - 56.25]/3600 = 1.2 watt hours
much less than above.
