There are some very smart people that way in on "V". I am very interested to see what you think of this.
Why can't super capacitors like the ones sold my maxwell Technologies be used to increase the range of an electric Scooter.
You can buy these cap banks up to 56 Farad values at 15 volts. You could use these capbanks combined with a DC-DC converter to change the voltage from say 15 volts to 48, 60 or 72 volts.
You would charge the capacitors before you leave so you would be carrying more energy with you. As your batteries decrease in value from say 66.5 for a 60 volts system the DC-DC converter could be tuned to say 63 volts. When the voltage dips to 63 volts the batteries and the Capbank now would be supplying power to the controller.
Also, caps are more efficent at storing energy than battiers which could be good for any on board solar applications that people may have on their scooters.
Why won't this work?
