The difference of the super capacitor from the usual battery in that it stores charge on the surface.
A group of scientists from the University of Central Florida have developed a new method for the production of flexible supercapacitors.
Smartphone with this power source will be capable of work out a week and be recharged in a matter of seconds, writes with reference to .
The difference of the super capacitor from the usual battery in that it stores charge on the surface. For the production of supercapacitors used millions of threads with a thickness in nanometer, which is covered with a thin sheet of graphene. It provides high energy density and power density, as well as the accelerated transfer of electrons for fast charging.
“In the case of portable electronic devices our materials surpass traditional energy density, power density and stability of the life cycle,” says one of the main participants of the study Nitin Choudhary.
Scientists call their invention a “proof of concept” and are planning to patent a new method of making supercapacitors. Experts hope that the food source will be widely distributed and will find application not only in smartphones but also in other areas.
