Comment low energy efficiency? (Score 1) 603

Vague memories from my physics degree suggest that as much energy is wasted while charging the capacitor as is actually stored in it. See eg. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor#Power_dissipation. Does this mean that this system could only ever be 50% efficient? Does anyone know whether similar physics applies to battery systems?
