Will ultra-capacitors kill chemical batteries?

Ultra-capacitors have been grabbing the headlines recently. Offering higher energy density (to weight) than their conventional brethren, the components are seen by some as replacements for some of the age-old battery technologies.
The capacitors are currently finding themselves in automotive applications (Ultracapacitors fill automotive power gaps). China is reportedly running an experimental bus service where public buses get a quick charge from "electric umbrellas" at bus stops.
What applications in India can use ultra-capacitors to replace chemical batteries?

ultra caps can go in elec toothbrushes and shavers. They undergo instant charge from ac power and run for a few minutes.
also fire alarms don't need batteries.  auto chaarge when power is avail.
in automotive they can be placed with inductors (actually motors) so that power load can be synchronized and loss reduced

my TV was covered and they'd send out a teciaichnn to repair it. They were careful to say that if the teciaichnn found anything else wrong with the TV and we wanted that word done, it would be at our cost.They said it would be a couple days for the tech to call. Tech called the second day, came out on time for the appointment, immmediately said he knew the problem and began work. 30 minutes later the TV works correctly and the work was completed at no charge to us.This TV was purchased in December 2006, so the work was done well past the warranty.We have another Samsung that hasn't started to act up yet. The Samsung rep said when it does, give them a call and they'll send a tech out under the same program.We're very pleased with their response and our Samsung TV.
