DIY variable tuning capacitor

For those who enjoy building radio projects, you may have noticed that variable capacitors are not as available as they once were. There was a time when all radio receivers contained at least one, but with the arrival of the varicap diode and frequency synthesizer, the traditional tuning capacitor is difficult to find. With a range of 5 pF to 27 pF, this multi-turn capacitor can be constructed using only six items. View the step by step guide

Super Capacitors as alternative to battery power storage

#SuperCapacitor as alternative to #battery #power #storage is already in many research labs. Here is some of the important features of it.

Supercap vs Battery

The most common battery technology is OK for today, but continuing forward we will need a battery that is safer, faster, cheaper, and denser than the current ones.

There is a global search for new energy storage technology, and this new
ultra capacity super capacitor has the potential to open the door to
unimaginably exciting developments,” said Dr. Brendan Howlin of the University
of Surrey.
