Supercapacitors for battery replacement

Post by pkersey » Sun Apr 15, 2018 3:16 am

Hello, it's been a while. Any of you fellows ever tried to fit a supercapacitor in place of the age-old, leaking-prone batteries? I'd like to hear any considerations on the subject.

I've done it. I can't find much info on it other than this thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11727

I've not powered my master up since the Sunday morning of the Manchester ABUG so I'll dig it out today and see if it's kept its settings.

I'm replying at last!

I plugged the master in last weekend and all the settings were correct so that's more than 3 months it's lasted.
