Shameless plug to my recently published paper!  It's open source so you should be able to view it.   Key findings: Supercapacitors do not behave like other capacitors (obvious if you've used one).  Mainly in that their charge profile is not linear due to an internal distribution of time constants.  This means that you can charge a SC up to 1V, say, for 1s, then go open circuit and the voltage will seemingly drop, or sag.  If you do the same test but hold the 1V charge ...
