Yes, that's the big disadvantage. I've been looking at the specs.
Really bad at audio frequencies.

Organic hydrogel outperforms typical carbon supercapacitors | Ars Technica

For audio only as a battery replacement.. circuits could be paralleled with better and faster caps.

At least this isn't EESTOR (many vague promises, no product after years of "research"). Still going to need time and money to develop production quantities.

Freax,

Actually its a power amp and the transformer is a 4KVA, soft start seriously required. Here is my take on a Preamp power supply - only 2 each 375VA transformers - and yes, there's no soft start on this one :-)

Good Listening

Peter

It's pretty neat to consider...
If every basement had a "super capacitor" with an appropriate charge controller, or there were just a lot of them spread about. That could be the missing piece of the puzzle for the grid. As of now we need to generate to meet demand because there is no way to store excess power so we route it about or turn generation on or off as needed. It makes it difficult to use wind and solar due to needing "back-up" generation to fill demand when that power is not available at night or during a calm period. At least that's how I have understood it. I think some of the possibilities are very cool.

I like the idea of exchangeable batteries.
You pay a deposit and a kind of rent for using them. The rent could be paid together with the energy.
Imagine the batteries were taken to the power plant to be recharged. The full batteries would be transported to the "gas stations" .
I turn up up with my e-car and park over a mechanism that will take my exhausted battery from the bottom of the car and replace it with full one. You pay for the energy you have taken from the battery and for the time you have had the battery.
Fast and clean exchange, no power electronics in the layman´s home and a nice model for the energy companies (now oil companies) to continue making some profit.
I see no reason why this could not be done.

And by the way, I would really like to live in a world were there are no noisy exhausts.
