I don't think so, the recharge circuit pushes higher voltages (3.1v) when
charging. The intelligent power supply is a little too intelligent for it's
own good. ;-) It very particular about what it wants in the line and errors
at the slightest fault.

But I am curious, do super caps come in coin size? The space in the case is
built for a shrink wrapped 1x2 coin setup. Not sure of the equivalent
coin size yet.
