    The super-capacitors should have no problem with the high load, although I don't know how long they last. One needs to know what one is doing as an over-voltage would destroy them; pictured is a 6...

    Well if 100W is sustained for 2 mins; 400W will be a quarter of the time or half a minute; 800W for a quarter of a minute; enough for glitches but maybe not enough time to shut down.

    One puts them in a UPS in place of the battery and the UPS takes care of everything.

    The calculation is easy as the energy is 0.5 C V^2 and one can assume the UPS has access to about half of this....

    Not sure efficiency is really an issue given that they are rarely used; I'd get them just for the longer life.

    Sounds like a manufacturing issue, where the thermal pad was the sort used for a CPU and not a high voltage component.

    I wonder what Corsair specified on their bill of materials

    If the fuel runs out in a plane does one blame the engine for failing to run?

    So it was not the actual diode that was failing, but the thermal pad.

    One begins to appreciate just how difficult manufacturing is and not just design.
