Super-Charged Supercapacitors for Speedy Battery Recharging

Supercapacitors run on static electricity and they can recharge and deliver power faster than conventional batteries. Their main drawback is how much energy they can store. But a new technique for making supercapacitors, developed by chemist Richard Kaner of UCLA, may eliminate that disadvantage and propel them to the forefront of the renewable energy world.
