Gold Cap supercap leak

  1. Mar 9, 2013 #1
    Dear Experts

    I am using Gold Cap super capacitors. About 3.3 Farads ones at 2.5V.

    When I charged it to 2.5V, it immediate starts to discharge within a few seconds even when not connected to load.

    Is this normal?

    Thank you for reading.

    Best regards

    How did you determine the discharge is occurring? What is the rate of discharge?
