How much and how efficiently can a capacitor store charge?
I recently found out all the items required to build this project: http://www.instructables.com/id/Electricity-Generating-Footwear/ . I don't want to buy the power bank, so I though about using rechargeable batteries. But I had none, but I had capacitors and I thought of using them. These capacitors 1000 uf . I am thinking about soldering 5 of them in paralell so that I have 5000 uf storage capacity, But I am concerned how well it would work, if at all. Can this store upto the amount of charge that a powerbank can? Can it actually charge up at a constant voltage if I use it? Thanks for helping!
