Rechargeable batteries save us a lot of money but take a lot of time. What if you could recharge a battery in seconds instead of hours? Read more

Ok, time to spill the beans...
Ok, time to tell the secret. Hopefully this will put some of your doubts to rest. I've had a lot of messages from people, asking how it's possible to fit THAT much energy. Well, the big secret is this. This capacitor isn't even actually on the market yet and it also cost me a pretty penny to get the ones that I have. The activated carbon electrode has been replaced with a graphene substrate. The only way I'll be able to get these batteries made for the price I've got the rewards set at, is if I can spend $8000 with the manufacturer. The other $2000 goes to other components and shipping. Now, the theoretical capacitance is near 3500. If, for some reason you don't believe these claims, well, I invite you to pledge enough to get a battery and run it through your own rigorous tests. I've had 2 in one of my daughters toys for weeks now without recharging and it's still going strong. Graphene capacitors haven't yet reached the market, so, here is your chance to be one of the first.
