A capacitor is a device used to store an electrical charge, similar to a battery. Batteries store electricity using a slow chemical reaction, while capacitors store electricity in the form of a static field. Conventional capacitors are comprised of two metal conducting plates separated by a dielectric. This allows capacitors to charge and discharge extremely fast without noticeable degradation. Unfortunately, conventional capacitors have always been too small to be used in energy storage.
Electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLC) otherwise known as supercapacitors or ultracapacitor can store millions of times more energy than a standard capacitor of the same size. This is due to their electrodes using activated carbon instead of metal separated by an electrolyte instead of a dielectric. The high surface area in the activated carbon results in higher energy storage.
ELDC’s bridge the gap between batteries and capacitors while being more energy dense than their traditional counterparts and providing a much longer lifespan and faster charging than batteries.
