I read about this somewhere - I hate having to watch videos to get information. Energy density may be an issue, does anyone know?

Yes - there were press releases about it a few days back.

Doesn't seem to have affected the markets yet, I think everyone's taking a wait and see attitude.

I also hope it's as good as predicted. Energy storage is the big block right now in a lot of technologies..

timmmay: I read about this somewhere - I hate having to watch videos to get information. Energy density may be an issue, does anyone know?


They claim in that video that energy density is higher than for lithium ion batteries.
There is a little bit of other information out there on the 'net.
Use of dual carbon for "supercapacitors" isn't a novel concept.  Eliminating the inherent low energy density and high self-discharge rate may be the breakthrough.
Well - hopefully...
If true, then it's a game changer.  If not, then a great disappointment.
