I am trying to use capacitors instead of batteries to run electrical
equipment. Let us say I am storing many thousands of amps on a capacitor.
This amount of charge will destroy (and has destroyed) anything I connect
it to. Is there anyway to discharge this electric potential slowly so as
to be useful? Thank you for your time.
