Hybrid Supercapacitor Gives Energy Density Of Lead-Acid Batteries (Video)

Hybrid Supercapacitor Gives Energy Density Of Lead-Acid Batteries (Video)

By Stephen Edelstein 1,538 views Apr 23, 2015 Reddit This! Share on Facebook Share on Twitter The need to increase electric-car ranges and decrease charging times has led to huge amounts of research into improved battery chemistries. But why stop at the stuff that goes into the battery? Why not change the battery itself? Scientists at UCLA's California NanoSystems Institute says they have developed a hybrid device that goes beyond simple changes in cell chemistry. CHECK OUT: Volvo Develops Structural, Supercapacitor Nanobatteries For Future Electric Cars (Oct 2013) The experimental device combines the energy density of a lead-acid battery with the quick charge and discharge rates of a supercapacitor. It's six times as energy-dense as the average commercial supercapacitor, according to research published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (via Gi...
