EPS using Super Capacitor Buffering of Solar Energy

We are flying the CSK structure and flight MCU, but building our own EPS. Given that the orbital period of LEO cubesats is on the order of 90 minutes, super capacitors appear to have several advantages compared with rechargeable batteries for storing energy.

We are seeking information to guide our design efforts. Are you aware of anyone who has taken this approach? Any comments on this approach based on your knowledge of classical cubesat EPS design?

Thanks!
