I'm writing this one here to share a technique I've developed that works quite well, even on copper tabs (for which it was designed). The theory is simple- I've got a handful of ultra-capacitors (2.5 Volts, 2600 Farads) wir...

This usually means they're shorted out by crystal dendrite growth. Here's a method of bringing them back to life by zapping those shorted crystal dendrites away with too much current and/or voltage. We'll us...
