Now, for the first time ever, we are offering the final solution to your
capacitor needs for Slot Car Racing, TRUE 50* Farad Capacitors. These are the Largest Capacitors In The World !
Capacitance Values this large are only available with the latest modern technology.
A Rivergate Exclusive !
- Use One of these across your 12~16.5 volt supply to provide HUGE
amounts of startup current. Whatever your application, these will
fit the bill. Capable of supplying almost a thousand amps for a short time
to supply that extra boost of current when you need it for startups.
Racetrack operators can use them to boost and protect their power supplies
during a race start.
- Can replace batteries used for race start surges on slot car
- Also used to filter DC supplies to absolutely eliminate any hum or ac
- Can actually power the racetrack for a few seconds in the
event of a power failure or dropout. This gives you the edge to
provide solid, proven lap times with a consistent power delivery previously unheard
- Great for Car Sound systems from 200 watts to 2500 watts. No one
beats this capability!
For the last several years we have
tried to find a capacitor that is reliable and of good enough quality to
offer it for sale to our valued customers. After many
disappointments from junk made in China, we discontinued selling them...
The "Hydra" is a powerhouse of a
capacitor. Rated at a conservative 50 Farads, it has no equal.
If you tech people will do a R/C time constant test on the so called 1, 5, or even 30 farad capacitors you have, you will be in for a shock.
We have measured 30 farad rated capacitors at a paltry .8 farad.
Yes you read it right, .8 farad. Based on a new technology we are
now offering a Super Capacitor that is a true 50 Farads... and you can
prove it with the R/C time constant test to determine capacitance
values. Look up the formula and try it on your 'foreign' made
Proudly made here in America! We
make them ourselves, with American labor.
All Models rated 0 to 17 Volts DC Max
50 Farads of True, Real, capacitance. Very low ESR. 20mΏ
Minimum Requirements: A 55 Amp power supply to charge the capacitor is the
absolute minimum, smaller units will charge the capacitor, but it will overload
them and require several cycles of powering up the supply to fully charge it.
Optionally you can use a 5 or 10 Ohm 20 watt resistor in series to charge up the
supply and then connect it directly to a smaller supply. (Note, this method will
take several minutes to reach full charge)
Size ~ 10 inches long and 4.25 inches in diameter.
Has internal voltmeter to show charge voltage.
Auto reset breaker on short circuit overload.
(To prevent fire or damage in the event of a short circuit)
Word on the street is the Hydra
is the Cap to get, you will never need anything else. "The
Best, Most Powerful, Money Can Buy..."
"We use them exclusively on our track"
I was getting complaints of power loss, but not with these new Hydra
Note: In stock units will
ship same day or one business day. If we are sold out, typical
waiting times are 5 to 10 days for more to be built and shipped.

* We say "True" capacitance because nearly all 1 farad +
manufacturers make false claims about the value of their capacitors.
We have measured capacitors rated at 32 farads at a true value of only .8
farad, yes you read it right, .8 farad. The test used was the standard RC
time constant test known for years in the engineering community. That's
an overrating of 40 times!
Hyrda Super Capacitors can supply massive
current into a dead short and cause a fire in small wiring. Do not use
wiring smaller than 12 a.w.g. to charge or operate these capacitors.
Recommended minimum wire size is 10 a.w.g. (American Wire Gauge)
Do not short the capacitor terminals to
discharge it, this will cause the internal reset breaker to trip and
repeated discharging can cause the breaker to fail if tripped many times in
in a clean, well ventilated location that will not be in direct contact with
humans to prevent injury or electrical shock.
Do not over voltage the capacitor, this will
void the warrantee and eventually shorten the life of the capacitor.
Do not place near a fire or heater where the
capacitor will be exposed to high temperatures, a fire might result causing
property damage or loss of life.
Do not place where the capacitor may fall and
hit someone causing injury or death.
Purchaser or user assumes all risks in
connecting and operating this capacitor and assumes all responsibility in
operating said product with safe connections and location and parameters.
