Well the question was answered... As it looks like the balance boards are for slow charging.
So I guess the question is, won't the capacitor system that Chris has work just fine without the balancing... once it is initially charged?
Do you even read what you are posting??
Do you understand what you are saying??
Sorry if that seems harsh, but sheesh ..... !!!!
You just brought this thread right back to the middle by NOT understanding anything that dumdum has already technically explained...and even wasnt even that technical.
The balancer circuit does nothing except prevent overcharging of individual caps with at worst a small parasitic loss,
Of course Chris's original Ultra Caps he bought could work with or without the addition of a balancing board/circuit but running WITHOUT the balancers adds to the likliehood of early capacitor failure and to the risk of vehicle fire due to the overcharging of individual caps
