High energy density supercapacitors: alternative to battery power storage

BatteryConcerns.jpg

Researchers from the University of Surrey and Augmented Optics Ltd. collaborated with the University of Bristol to develop a high energy density supercapacitor that could recharge mobile devices in just a few seconds.

The technology could impact numerous industries, including transport, aerospace, energy generation, and household applications. It could change electric cars as we know them, allowing them to recharge as quickly as it takes for a standard non-electric car to refuel with gas. This would cut the 6-8 hour process down significantly.  Read more...
