UCL bendable supercapacitor

A new bendable supercapacitor made from graphene has been developed and demonstrated by researchers from the UK’s University College London (UCL) and Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The proof-of-concept technology solves the key issue of supercapacitors by increasing both its power density and energy density— critical requirements for use in applications including electric vehicles. 

Moreover, it can bend to 180 degrees (in a half-pipe configuration) without affecting performance and doesn’t use a liquid electrolyte.
