Jan 13, Monday: We have our parts now! Got our capacitors! When measured, they were 50% of the printed value >:(. We started crimping some connectors on to wire them in parallel for our capacitor bank. This means total voltage will be low and energy stored will increase linearly with the number of capacitors.
We also tried to source some transformers for the charging circuit. Trying to stay away from using the wall power!
