Tear down of a super capacitor

Posted on Tuesday, January 10th, 2017 in Teardowns by DP

A teardown video of a 1 Farad super capacitor from Electronupdate:

In a recent video on the tear down of an electrolytic cap a viewer was wondering what a super capacitor looks like.
They have much more capacitance: 10,000 time more on average for the same volume.
Surely this means the physical construction must be amazing! Interestingly enough, the construction is almost identical.. the secret is in the dielectric.
