rechargeable battery + super capacitor

Fri May 10, 2019 4:53 am

I'm building a pocket project that I'm going to put in my pocket and walk around with.
Inside is a [18650] battery and a 3.6v to 5 v boost. Also inside is a raspberry pi zero, but it could be any small electronics as well.
When I need to change battery, I would have to shut down the load. I'm wondering if I put a super capacitor of some sort, I can then switch battery with-in n-seconds. I have tested the load and it drains from 110mA to 160mA.

Its probably a good idea to have a look at what others have done.
