Ultracapacitor : Introduction

LS Ultracapacitor (Supercapacitor) is promising energy storage device that positioned between conventional electrolytic capacitor and
rechargeable batteries. High power, high energy and long-term reliability feature of LS Ultracapacitor (Supercapacitor) enable this component
to use in various applications as backup power unit, auxiliary power unit, instantaneous power compensation, peak power compensation and
energy storage as well.

LS Ultracapacitor provides optimum design of package to have the best performance and reliability.

  • Ultracapacitor (Supercapacitor) is composed of two elec
    trodes immersed in electrolyte, and its porous dielec
    tric separator prevents short circuit of two electrodes.

    Ultracapacitor (Supercapacitor)stores energy relied on
    electrostatic charges on opposite electrode surface of the
    electric double layer, which is formed between each of the
    electrodes and the electrolyte.

    Randomly distributed ions in electrolyte move toward the
    electrode surface of opposite polarity under electric field
    when charged. It is purely physical phenomena rather than
    though a chemical reaction and highly reversible process,
    which result in high power, high cycle life, long shelf life, and
    maintenance-free characteristics.
