Yes, it needs a charge, but that charge can out last any battery on the market.
If you can charge it in a second, you can dump it in a second. But that is if your using something that will be destructive. But if it has a fast
recharge rate, then once disconnected, it can be used on let's say a town.
So to focus on the small things, if a laptop was to have a Rectangular shaped quartz crystal, and going off this equation with it equaling a cubic
C is the capacitance measured in Farads, A is the area in square meters, K is the dielectric constant between the plate, e= 8.85 X 10^-12 coul^2/Nm^2,
d is the distance between plates.
The variables are A = 2.25 X 10^8, K=1, and d= 10^-10
(((2.25 X 10^8)(8.85 X 10^-12)/10^-10) X 2= ~40 MF. For a laptop that can last a long time, most likely beat the laptop in a durability race.
And there is another thing I forgot to mention to all, once charged, the crystal will have it's own cooling system.
Cool to the touch, but don't put it into a swimming pool. Will freeze it.
So for a laptop, you can overclock it all you want, and all the components will be safe as long as that crystal remains charged.
