It is not only the heat that causes the problem. Too high an input current can cause physical distortion of the plates, you always need some sort of current limiting when charging them. Saying it is not connected for long does not cut it. At the very least you are damaging the storage capacity of your component.

I love the "future tense" statements here..

I did it, it's done, get over it, no more whinging, we all get it!, as pointed out i use a Regulator, I was more curious as to what it could do... the capacitors themselves barely even got warm, nor the battery, just the leads...

past tense, that was fun.

future tense, I'll continue using my switching regulator.

I bought 2 150F super caps from a local supplier in Aus, and really impressive but the 200F from coolshopper08 on ebay some other brand, the capacitor is 30% roughly larger in size and only 50 farads more, so I was not really expecting much difference..

But boy these caps suck 3 - 4x more juice! - after my wires started to smoke (I quickly touch the terminals on and off until i reach 2.7v) i soon realized how much power was being drawn from a 12v lead acid battery!

Since i already melted jumper wires to everything in sight, I decided to make a video and see how powerful this was, so to not damage the 200F cap I only made contact for a few seconds, watch the alligator clip! any longer and I'm sure it would begin to melt....


200F??? Do you mean FARADS???

Please provide a link. I want one!
