    As the title suggests we've just taken delivery of Scott Patrol E1 30l Supercapacitor airbags.

    Quite frankly these are game changers.

    Canister airbags are a PITA to travel with, trust me, lithium-ion powered bags are better but not perfect.

    These guys can be charged via supplied power adapter, USB or even 2x AA Batteries in 20-40 mins (20 for adapter, 40 for USB or AAs), they will hold their charge for 3 months.

    3 months.....
    I'm wondering how they get around the high self discharge rate of supercapacitors.
    I'd expect the charge to dwindle to 10-20% in 3 months.

    Looks like they are using the 2 x AA batteries to keep the system topped off, giving the three month reserve capacity.

    Looks great and I want one, two grand tho.... damm.
