    To understand an answer, you need to understand what a capacitor is.

    In modern electronics, a capacitor is one of the common elements of circuits. It temporarily stores an electric charge. And that’s as opposed to a battery, which charges slowly, stores for long periods of time, and discharges at a measured rate.

    But “capacitor” also has a more general use, as in: Anything that is acting as a capacitor. I.e., something that is holding an electronic charge.

    Folks in Yahoo! Answers mention that there is a 5,000 Farad commercial capacitor. But in terms of upward limit? There is none. Entire planetary atmospheres can act as a capacitor.
