Can you trickle charge a capacitor? For example, from a small solar panel? If I have a 955mf Capacitor, can it take varying trickle charges in and still reach its full potential?
Or, would I have to hook the panel up to a small 6v battery, and funnel the voltage into the capacitor that way? What if the battery only has 655mah, is that relevant?
Danno I think the scrambled order is not an issue as long as the key numbers on the capacitor match its application or match the old one AND as long as you connect the proper wires.
To install the new capacitor, I inserted the straight lead through the transformer terminal to which the tonewheel pickup coil is attached (the one with a coloured wire connected to it). Then I passed the hooked lead through the other terminal (the one with a single fine transformer wire connected to it). Using needle nosed pliers, I squeezed the hook shut, forming a firm mechanical connection. The straight lead at the other end was bent upward and over the terminal and the excess cut off, and then both ends were soldered.
To make it easier to keep track of which magnet belongs to which tone, I copied the markings from the magnet location chart of the M-series service manual directly onto the tone generator using a black grease pencil.
A 6-farad capacitor would typically be pretty big. It might be as big as a can of tuna or a 6-liter soda bottle, depending on the voltage it can handle. For this reason, capacitors are typically measured in microfarads (millionths of a farad).
I bought the module below. It charges well but will not start my explorer. Could a larger starter from a SUV require a higher capacity?
I begin with a Volt Charge, and attempt to crank. I get a half a turn then it die 8767 s out. When I check the voltage on the module afterwards it 8767 s around 6 volts.
This ia a very interesting article. Let say that rather than building a battery replacement to build a battery booster? I see the cheap battery boosters and think they will simply die after a certain amount of time because they are too cheap.
C= (dielectric constant) x (area / distance)
What Area do you use and what distance?
Is it the diameter of the bottle?
It looks like the capacitors you are using in the video are axial connectors. Do they not make them anymore? I 8767 ve been looking and all I see is radial connectors. Thank you
If the voltage from the capacitors' configuration is higher (series), less current is drawn.
In parallel, twice the amount of current is drawn by the booster.
Power = Voltage * Current
Thus, you do not gain anything from parallel configuration except the fact that equivalent internal resistance (ESR) is halved. That can help in quick high current demands.
The real concern is the efficiency of the booster. Capacitors should be arranged in a configuration to produce voltage at which the efficiency of the booster is maximum.
