UCLA researchers develop new graphene supercapacitors that store massive amounts of energy

Hydrogen Research

Researchers from UCLA have developed a new way to produce supercapacitors. Supercapacitors are the common term referring to electrochemical capacitors. These technologies are capable of storing massive electrical charges and can discharge this energy more quickly than batteries. Supercapacitors are often considered the best form of energy storage currently available, but their production is costly and time consuming. UCLA researchers believe they have solved the problem of cost by using graphene, an allotrope of carbon. By using graphene, researchers have been able to construct affordable supercapacitors that are significantly more…
