They are 750,000 uF and each one is the size of a fire hydrant. They should sound AMAZING.

These probably won't fit in a ipod dock but I will just wrap them in heatshrink:


This is a 757 μF paper/oil capacitor rated 1600 V DC. It stores 900 Joules.

I think if you carry a pair of those around nobody's going to notice your earbuds and mug you for your iMod.

If I remember well, total capacitance of the world is 1F. That suggests me evil things.
