New supercapacitors charge in seconds, provide long-lasting power

10/24/2013 | Network World

Substituting silicon for the chemicals normally used in batteries, Vanderbilt University researchers say they've produced supercapacitors that can charge cellphones in seconds and keep them powered for weeks. The key is the supercapacitors' ability to store electricity by assembling ions on the surface of its porous silicon.
