With minor variation the same routine can be used to estimate recharge time. One of the big features of capacitors over batteries is "instant" charging. Set the wattage to 500 (reasonable for a line-powered device), Vstop to 0 and efficiency to 1.0. Vstart stays at 2.5. Charge/discharge curves are symmetric with respect to time, so charging at 500 watts takes the same time as discharging.
