I couldn’t help myself from asking what the MOQ would be. The answer probably won’t be useful to aspiring UcPure users, but who knows.

Cheers for making a attempt directly. Hopefully the threaded versions start populating on some distribution channels (primarily Mouser). But since they have demanding corporations and governments, the chances may be quite low.

That would imply that more "cutting edge" caps should work, but Ian would know better. Perhaps he'd like to comment.

Of course there are the Tecate caps that you mentioned, and the Eaton ones. Both look like reputable companies selling quality products. Personally, I am a sucker for that "made in Germany" thing but would not feel bad about using either of these.
I just meant the latest and greatest of their model, the 3400. The 3000 may have been out on the market longer. The 3400 may not even be released yet.

It's too bad, it would be my #1 choice too as German and European engineering is really appealing. I can't imagine how fast the Graphene will charge with the UcPure. If it takes an hour to fully charge a non-Graphene Ultra Capacitor, maybe a few minutes charge with Graphene? That would make a pretty robust solution.

I'm a good year behind in these Ian projects, so I may skip out on the UcPure as I just realised you need a third-party balancing board after skimming the manual. I just want to keep things simple for now and slowly learn. So I will try to hold out for Skeleton Technologies in late 2022. I have enough on my plate ATM to keep me occupied.

Thanks. Since I run exclusively Redbook on the RPi, the 5 MHz is all I will ever need along with the SinePi.
