I want to implement a momentary power backup in my circuit using a supercapacitor. I have come up with the following circuit. Am I right in implementing the super capacitor like this? Also, the input voltage is 5V. Should I have a capacitor rated above the input 5V?
Increased the resistor value to 100R and added a Schottky diode parallel to the resistor. Supercapacitor rated at 10V.
