This is a wonderful idea. I’ve always believed that if an electric car would be made that would recharge in roughly the same amount of time that it takes to fill a gas tank, and with no excessive premium in cost for that ability, we’d be well on our way to a more useful electric vehicle.
Now the only problem is how large a conductor will you need to carry the amount of charge that it would take to drive a car, oh, say, 300 miles into the super capacitor in just a minute. I’m guessing it would be somewhat larger gauge than your typical 15 A extension cord UNLESS it could be made of room temperature super conductor but that’s a whole different field of research.
