Why does this work, and is it doing anything at all?
Take a look at the pic, i have a 9v battery, two 50 volt 3300uF capacitors, and a 2.4 volt green 20ma led, when i hook up led normally i need a resistor and proper powr supply, but i was bored and started randomly hooking things together(mad science) any way i hooked the 2 capacitors together and wired a led inbetween them, plugged in the 9volt and the led started dim then got brighter then i have ever seen these crappy leds get, i left it on for 30 mins and it stayed on, i expected a fast burn out due to no resistor but no it was great, then i unplugged the 9v and the led slowly faded off which i kinda guessed would happen dimmed for 10 seconds then turned off.. ok my Q why did this happen, i have little expierence with capacitors, know they make good tazer but thats about it. and why did the led work like this with no resistor? is the capacitor pulling enough power that the 9v is working on lower volt? w/e answers please
