Is the Time Near When Supercapacitors Replace Batteries Forever ? A supercapacitor is a high-capacity electrochemical capacitor with capacitance values in the range of around 100,000 µF up to some 1000 F with rated voltages in the range of 1.2 up to 3.8 V that bridge the gap between electrolytic capacitors and rechargeable batteries. They […]

There is now a Compressed Air Powered Motorcycle. Compressed air is one very viable way to store energy. We have learned how to store air at high pressures in excess of 10,000 psi for activities like SCUBA diving many years ago. Diving with an air tank containing significant compressed energy is something that is routine for […]
