Title: Flux Capacitor for sale
Post by: Majorstrain on January 17, 2019, 12:34:09 pm
Who else has noticed the Jaycar are selling a Flux Capacitor now.

Here's the link.
https://www.jaycar.com.au/flux-capacitor/p/OUTATIME (https://www.jaycar.com.au/flux-capacitor/p/OUTATIME)
The data sheet is a bit sparse on technical details though.

I'm just waiting for them to come back into stock.

I like the "related products" showing multi-meters.  Is CAT III rated to work on flux capacitors?  :-DD

With power levels of 1.21GW involved - I'd say not.

I am no BTTF officionado but GW x nS only comes to approx a joule or so - if I have my sums correct.

"When the capacitor is charged with 1.21GW of energy"

Yes, thats the level of technical know-how Jaycar normally exhibit.   I normally fear going to Jaycar for the following reasons

(1) The staff generally exhibit very poor personal hygiene and smell bad
(2) they always ask what i want something for.     ( Seriously, do you really want to know )
(3) They are experts on everything, but only really know how to use the EFTPos terminal

How do you charge anything with Watts of energy??
