Supercapacitors are commonly used to bridge short power interruptions and improve the way a battery handles current.
When connected in parallel with batteries, supercapacitors can supply peak power demands, and later use the batteries to recharge when demands are lower. This dramatically reduces the size and overall cost of the power system, and enables new, lucrative technological advances.
For example, lithium ion batteries alone cannot satisfy the enormous power appetites and miniaturization of next generation electronics. However, a supercapacitor combined with micro-fuel cell technology can.
As the chart illustrates, the solid state construction of Quantum Wired’s supercapacitor far exceeds the overall performance (energy and power) of double layer electrolytic capacitors, positioning Quantum Wired to capture a significant share of the global market.
Current supercapacitors made from electrolytes have limited commercial opportunity due to leakage and their inability to handle extreme temperatures.
Quantum Wired’s solid state supercapacitor has no electrolytes to leak, and thus can withstand significant mechanical shock and temperature conditions, such as those found under the hood of a vehicle, in space, or on the ocean floor.
