Compared to traditional carbon-based supercapacitor electrodes fabricated from carbon black and binder materials, graphene aerogels offer many advantages such as control of density and pore size distribution, and increased conductivity due to carbon linkers between the active carbon sheets and the absence of binder materials.
Aerogels derived from carbon as well as inorganic materials were developed at LLNL and have found a number of applications—from capturing space dust to lining the inside of National Ignition Facility targets.



So Lawrence Livermore Lab developed a new material that could replace lithium-ion batteries in electric cars including other applications.

But will it allow my phone to last for a full day of full usage without needing a recharge???

If it can do that than I'll invest!

Yes, because these materials aim to maximise the energy density of a material. That's achieved by increasing the surface area/volume ratio.

In my opinion the future its in our past

Supercapacitors also have much faster discharge rates.

A high energy density, and high discharge rate. think: What sort of systems have that property, and who funds their development at Los Alamos?






















[i'm thinking: EMF weapon]
