Their energy density isn't great compared to batteries, storing maybe a quarter of the power lithium units can for a given volume, but compared to other ultracapacitors their carbon nanotube structure crams up to five times more energy in.
Do they need so much density in F1 batteries of they can charge/ discharge much faster?
