No, no, I actually went through the time/hassle and expense to create
a usb gps with a PPS
output, and then wanted to put a supercap on it because batteries
didn't last long enough.


They were sold wholesale for a while. I don't know if any modern usb
gps has a pps
output... I still have enough of these left to last a lifetime.
