Ultra Capacitor Power Bank | Part 6 | Storage longevity and Recharging from a running car with jumper cables.

Sad news first, Bike wouldn't start, since the power had dropped to 9.2v.

First yet, the bike wasn't fully charged when I left it. In my previous video # 5 I had accidentally stalled the bike while being started by the girlfriend. It took me a moment to gather myself and turn off the key which turns off the lights which are a major drain on the system.

Anyway. I attach the leads and snap the picture below, 9.2v but is it enough to start? At this time I didn't know myself so I was really excited to find out. So I sat there narrating to you that I would pull the choke and turn the key to start the bike. So I did and nothing happened, but the starter solenoid and lights pulled the Power Bank down to 5.6v :-( At this point I figured I'd document Wesley's previous question of how to you charge it back up when it's dead, I didn't feel like dragging it into the house to use my trickle charger and my car was sitting right there so I decided to use the jumper cables and wire it in parallel just as if I was jump starting it.

That is where the next video picks up... Sorry for the shaky camera work but I was tired and this part of the video wasn't actually what I thought I would be doing but I wasn't sure if I wanted to after my day.
