Press Release Summary:
May 9, 2012 - Designed using nickel and carbon electrodes, non-conducting separators, and alkaline electrolyte inside each cell, KAPowerÂ® Ultracapacitors allow 1-32 L engines to crank regardless of battery state. Physical reaction is used to store and release energy, and asymmetric design lets products experience Faradaic pseudo-capacitive behavior. Able to be fully recharged to 100% capacity in as little as 30 sec, supercapacitors hold energy for upwards of 2 years in-between use.
