Researchers Have Innovated A Supercapacitor (Stores electric Energy) That Stretches To 8X Its Original Size While Being Fully Functional Without Wear Or Tear. And It Loses A Few % Points Of Energy Performance After 10,000 Cycles Of Charging And Discharging. The Device Could Be Used In, E.G., Wearable Electronics Or Biomedical Devices.
Researchers at Duke University and Michigan State University have engineered a novel type of supercapacitor that remains fully functional even when stretched to eight times its original size. It does not exhibit any wear and tear from being stretched repeatedly and loses only a few percentage points of energy performance after 10,000 cycles of charging and discharging.
