Charging a 350F Maxwell Ultracapacitor!

Charging a 2.7V, 350 Farad D-Cell Maxwell Ultracapacitor to 2.3 Volts. Charged with a small dc-dc converter module which takes in 12V and outputs 2.5V. It delivers a max. current of 3A. The charging current drops as the capacitor gets charged up. Then the capacitor is shorted for a short amount of time with a piece of wire just to see what happens. Since it is rated short-current of 840A it melts the wire right away.
