Could Ultracapacitors Realize Their Full Potential…With Laxatives?

Supercapacitors present an amazing opportunity to move away from batteries and into a world where almost instant charging is the norm. But their drawbacks mean we can’t use them widely…yet. Experiments with a new class of materials that are related to soap and laxatives (yes, laxatives) could bring us one step closer to a world […]

Batteries and Supercapacitors

With Tesla’s recent purchase of Maxwell Technologies, I thought it was a perfect time to take a closer look at the current state of batteries and what could be next. As well as what supercapacitors are, why so many people are excited by them, and a wonder material that could change … everything. So we’re […]

What is a graphene supercapacitor?

A supercapacitor is a device that stores energy that can be rapidly charged and discharged this makes it distinctly different from a battery which takes much longer graphene is an ideal material to incorporate into supercapacitors due to its remarkable conductivity its high surface area mechanical robustness and even flexibility this allows us to create […]
