Super caps are a temporary high capacity capacitor power storage device. I installed these in the LGB stainz loco and after running about 1 minute on DCC with lights and smoke on and full speed, I picked the engine up off the track and it ran for over 10 seconds ion the air!! This is how long it took for these super caps to discharge. Look at these as a short term battery for power, but have no lead or acid to degrade and can be recharged a hundred thousand times or more.
