I cant watch the vid due to connection but i could probably offer
capacitors are capeable of storing energy so it would be possible
to do something on a small scale small led lights etc.
large scale (house usage)i dont think they have the energy storage
density that lead acids do.
and on a large scale capacitors would be very dangerous they have little
or no internal resistance unlike a battery so they can dump there entire
charge in an instant.
most of us have dropped something metal across the terminals of a lead acid
battery to be rewared with huge sparking and a big fright.
a similar accident on a large capacitor bank would probably literaly
vaporise a large tool and or explode.
