Hyper capacitor : the super fast battery

A capacitor is an electronic component that is a passive two-terminal electrical component used to store energy in an electric field. A capacitor is used to stabilize a power supply, to filter periodic signals or to block direct current while allowing alternating current to pass.

A super capacitor (or ultra capacitor) is an electrochemical capacitor with relatively high energy density energy. A super capacitor can store hundreds of times greater energy than conventional electrolytic capacitors, but store less energy than a battery.

A hyper capacitor is an high energy density supercapacitor that can store as much electricity as a battery. A supercapacitor can be described as a hypercondensateur when its energy density is greater than or equal to 50 Wh per kg.

The hyper capacitor is therefore akin to a super fast battery which also has a long life. Technically, the hypercondensateur is not a battery because the energy storage is not done by chemical reaction. A hypercondensateur stores an electrical charge directly between a positive electrode and a negative electrode separated by a porous insulating membrane. It's any static electricity that is stored and can be released much faster than in a battery where electricity comes from a chemical reaction necessarily much slower.

The hypercapacitor is not a myth, several laboratories have succeeded in creating hyper capacitors with energy densities ranging from 50 Wh per kg to 155 Wh per kg ! It's more than lithium-ion batteries currently available commercially.

The hyper capacitor is not yet ready for commercialization. Several techniques have been directed to the energy density required, but to arrive at a stage of industrial production there remain a number of issues to be resolved.

On www.hyper-capacitor.com you can find informations about hypercapacitors with technological advances and techniques used by laboratories to create these high-density supercapacitors. Perhaps soon we will also discuss the development and industrial production of the first uses of this ultimate energy storage solution resembling a super fast battery.
