Hemp Supercapacitors - Awesome Idea !!!

Graphene is a super material that is 100 times stronger than steel, conducts electricity better than copper, and is more flexible than rubber. It’s used in electronics but it’s prohibitively expensive to produce – so David Mitlin of Clarkson University, New York has discovered a way to replicate at least some of its properties with cheap hemp fiber leftover from textiles and building materials. His team has managed to upcycle these fibers into supercapacitors – energy storage devices that are quickly transforming the way electronics are powered. His findings were recently published in the ACS Nano Journal and presented at the American Chemical Society meeting in San Francisco.

Now those caps might really make your rig sound better, especially if you "smoke" one of them.

Supercapacitors/ultracapacitors are beginning to really come of age. Unfortunately, so far, they are only in low voltage values.

Their story...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supercapacitor

They are pretty interesting and certainly will only grow in use, applications and capability.

But you can buy 'em now...just no Colorado influenced version yet.

I wonder if there is a sonic difference between sativa and indica? :-s
