Supercaps have a low amount of Watt-Hours. E.g. Ten watt hours. BUT, they pack a wallop in instant power. E.g. 2000Amps.

I did not buy one because of the price, but I may eventually buy one to start the engine faster in cold weather.

I recommend 20KWH of batteries for our rigs. I did the math.

This is about the power of a Nissan Leaf G1 battery pack.

I did the math on this and put in 3 new 8d agm's.  I feel alright with my choice ;) We aren't prolific boondockers though and I don't mind the inefficient charging using my little $150 sportsman generator that gets 10 hours on a soda can's worth of...
