Supercapacitors Instead Of Rechargeable Batteries

Here's a little experiment of mine that tests the viability of using supercapacitors instead of rechargeable batteries in portable electronics. Supercapacitors charge much faster then traditional batteries and absorb the charge current more readily since their internal resistance is very small compared to a regular chemical battery. This is only a proof of concept video. If this was to be truly implemented, you would size the supercapacitors significantly and most likely add in a buck-boost converter to use more of the energy stored in the supercapacitors.
