Super caps to power an automatic putter Answered
I'm looking to build an automatic putter with a solenoid from a old starter motor and some super capacitors.
I've figured out how to triangulate the distance using a servo and a pair of lasers but I'm at a loss on how to charge them and the math behind it to make sure that the right amount of current goes through.
The basic plan is to either wire up a series of the caps listed above and hopefully charge them in series. OR buy a car booster pack and disassemble it for the bits and pieces. OR use a lipo like this and hope that the discharge is enough to hit the ball down the course.
Any thoughts or suggestions on some reading meterial?
I'll be doing an instructable at some point and will give some cred to the best answer
