Analysis of Supercapacitors in Different Aspects

Nov. 25, 2022


As a new energy storage component between traditional capacitors and rechargeable batteries, supercapacitors have large capacitance. Compared with other capacitors of the same size, the capacitance of supercapacitors is much larger, reaching the farad level. Some complex circuit requirements cannot be met by ordinary capacitors. At this time, supercapacitors are needed. Supercapacitors can meet the needs of complex circuit operation, have low requirements on circuit structure.

Charging Speed

The charging and discharging speed of the supercapacitor is fast, thanks to the fact that it does not undergo chemical reactions during the energy storage process, and there is no impedance generated by electrochemical reactions. The charging and discharging lines are simple and unobstructed, and can directly transmit charges and store energy. When charging, it is quickly charged to 95% of the rated capacitance.

Service Life

Supercapacitors can be charged and discharged hundreds of thousands of times. During the charging and discharging process, there will be no loss like batteries, and they can be used for a long time. 

Supercapacitor VS Battery

A supercapacitor has a larger capacitance than a normal capacitor, but not as much as a battery. With the same size, the energy stored in the battery is much higher than that of the supercapacitor, and the battery life is also more powerful. However, the charging time of the battery is long, and the charging temperature is too high. It is easy to cause fire, the use time is short, and the substance wrapped in the battery is toxic which means it will pollute the environment, while a supercapacitor will not pollute the environment.
