Jason I am sure that the caps can and do work in light situations and used a science test ok....BUT...
That is really not the best solution, and for proven reliability we use higher capacity CCA, AGM or lead acid batteries for our cars. I would not want to chance problems by even trying the connections with caps. I cant afford computer related problems/nightmares.
In the video above with the car running, with the battery terminals disconnected, I am not so sure that is a good idea either..for the alternator alone.
