They can be integrated as the sole energy storage source or in combination with batteries to optimize lifetime, run time, and cost.   Unlike batteries, our Hybrid LIC Supercapacitors do not degrade with each charge/discharge cycle and are inherently safer than batteries, with no risk of thermal runaway.  For applications requiring higher voltage or capacitance, CDE can design custom series-parallel banks of components, packaged into modules with the desired lead configuration.  Both series are fully RoHS compliant and UL recognized.



  • High Voltage
  • Very Fast Charge/Discharge
  • High Power Density
  • RoHS Compliant


Applications Include:

IoT systems, mechanical actuators, smart meters, pulse battery pack alternatives, memory backup, UPS systems, emergency lighting, LED powered solar lighting, and energy harvesting from solar or wind power
