Do you need a supercapacitor charger that can provide a continuous power to the load, even after the power supply is removed?
Look no more - UPS click has just been released.
UPS click uses two 3.3F supercapacitors connected in series, which are used as a temporary power storage banks. Supercapacitors, known as ultracapacitors, are a great advantage in power management, as they can be discharged and charged more times than traditional batteries.
The main component of this Click board, LTC3225 from Linear Technology, can the ability to maintain a constant voltage level on both connected supercapacitors.
UPS click will make sure that your project is protected from overvoltage, with an automatic cell balancing feature.
Like we mentioned above, when the power source is turned off, the output voltage relies on the supercapacitors. These two have an equivalent capacitance of 1.65F.
Supercapacitors VS Batteries
Storing energy efficiently is one of the best ways to transition from current energy sources to a more advanced and eco-friendly way. With more solar and wind power plants on the horizon, it's up to energy storage to ensure a stable grid. And one of the more popular ways is using supercapacitors.
Someone could say that batteries are the answer, but the ones we are using now have certain limitations. So what is the advantage of supercapacitors over batteries?
In supercapacitors energy is not stored electrochemically like in batteries, but electrostatically. This means that a supercapacitor does not lose its storage capacity over time. Also, supercapacitors charge more quickly than batteries.
