No good. You'd be lucky to get a second worth of power out of your capacitors. They're there for instantaneous power...measured in thousandths of a second, not tens of seconds.

Either buy bigger batteries that can output more all the time, or look for "performance" batteries that can handle sudden, intense rush of power.
