Panasonic Electronic Components’ Electric Double Layer Capacitors, known as “Gold Capacitors”, offer the highest volumetric efficiency of all capacitor technologies. They are often compared to secondary batteries. Unlike batteries, Gold Capacitors do not rely on a chemical reaction to produce electric current. Rather they are storage cells that utilize the absorption/release reaction of ions. Gold Caps have no limit to the number of charge and discharge cycles they can sustain and do not need a charging circuit. Repeated rapid charge and discharge cycles are acceptable.
Environmentally friendly New EEC-RF/RG Series Gold Capacitors provide capacitance value up to 1 farad and long life of 2000 hours at 85°C. They are a reliable secondary battery power back-up source.
