Power SuppliesSPS Supercapacitors Overview

Supercapacitors, known alternatively as ultracapacitors are electric double-layer capacitors offering distinct advantages over conventional capacitors.

Individually, they are capable of capacitance levels, 10,000 times that of electrolytic capacitors. Additionally, whilst energy densities are a fraction of traditional batteries, power densities can be as much as 100 times higher.
Applications for supercapacitors are many and varied, including memory backup in electronic devices, power supplies for vehicles, trains, mechanical handling devices, solar energy and wind turbines.
