capacitors Answered

So i'm trying to make a power supply, so for example if i make one with just capacitors (ill put a schematic if i can) and i hook it up to a device,Will it just discharge immediately or will the charge ask for a while?

Capacitors only discharge immediately if you short them. If there is a load in the circuit, they take longer.

You must be careful to match the capacitors and the device, or you may damage, even destroy, your device. Use the search box (very top right of page) to see what other people have done in your situation.
