Like all supercaps, the maximum voltage is rather low. Just 2.5V. One can charge caps past their max. Doing so makes supercaps leak like a sieve and heat up. And take some lifespan-shortening damage. But entire products have been based around overcharging supercaps. Remember those tiny ZipZap remote control cars, briefly popular around five years ago? They used a small 2.5F supercap (with a 2.5V max) charged up to 3 volts. But the Boostcap is much larger and would not dissipate heat very well at all. So don't overcharge it.
