Power/Performance Bits: April 7

Hybrid supercapacitors Researchers at UCLA combined the best qualities of batteries and supercapacitors in a new 3-D hybrid supercapacitor. Based on laser-scribed graphene and manganese dioxide, the new component stores large amounts of energy, recharges quickly and can last for more than 10,000 recharge cycles. The team also created a microsupercapacitor small enough to fit in wearable o... » read more
