The Electrolyte Factor in Supercapacitor Design and Performance: Conductivity, Ion Pairing and Solvation

  • B. E. Conway

Abstract

The principal expectations for supercapacitor performance for energy storage and delivery are
  1. 1.

    excellent recyclability with cycle lives of hundreds of thousands of cycles;

     
  2. 2.

    substantially greater power densities of operation than those achievable with regular batteries at the same operating voltages; and

     
  3. 3.

    good state-of-charge indication during discharge and recharge.
