Using industry-standard D cell battery dimensions, the BCAP0350 ultracapacitor from Maxwell Technologies is more "plug and play" and can easily be designed into a system.

The device is the first in a series of new ultracapacitors to be standardized on battery-sizing to drive down costs and ease integration of the technology. According to Maxwell, it provides system designers a lower-cost, highly reliable, and standard-sized energy storage and power delivery component for seamless and rapid integration in a variety of applications.

The product offers particular benefit to the transportation market where designers can integrate the BCAP0350 to power initial acceleration, operate electrical subsystems and recapture energy from braking for cleaner, more fuel-efficient hybrid electric/internal combustion buses, trucks and automobiles. For industrial systems, the capacitor provides a simple, solid state, highly reliable solution to buffer short-term mismatches between the power available and the power required.

As with all BoostCap ultracapacitors, the BCAP0350 supplies bursts of high power and recharges rapidly from any energy source over hundreds of thousands of cycles without significant performance degradation.

Rated for operation between the -40C to 65C temperature range, the product features a 350F capacitance, 2.5V voltage, 20A rated current, and 0.0032-ohm internal resistance (dc). It has a similar dimension to EN 60086-2 and EN 60285, offers ultra-low internal resistance and resistance against reverse polarity, and lasts over 500,000 duty cycles.
