Check this link for supercapacitors:
Supercapacitors do exist in low voltage versions (less than 10 volts)
and are used in a few EV's for storing the power produced by
regenerative braking. They are fairly expensive and bulky and do not
hold much energy when compared to batteries.
For a Texas-based supercapacitor company, check the following:
The claims made by EESTOR seem so challenging that I would take them
with a grain of salt.. I just wish they were true..
