Using Supercapacitors for Backup Power and Peak Energy Surges
When will supercapacitors replace batteries? Each of those technologies has their advantages and disadvantages, ones that power designers take into consideration when developing power systems. And supercapacitor technology is advancing at a rapid rate while current battery technologies are relatively mature. In this white paper, we compare the key parameters of Li-ion batteries and supercapacitors and peer into the future to see when and where supercapacitors may replace batteries.
