Maxwell's HC series of ultracapacitor cells are ideal for consumer electronics, automotive control systems, wireless transmission, medical devices, automatic meter readers, and many other applications requiring a pulse of energy that cannot be provided efficiently by a battery or power supply alone.
Care to tell me what the cost of a simple Kwhr of storage with Maxwell supercaps is?
Facts are SC will never be used for anything but very short pulses of power. Nor do they mention the expensive electronics needed to produce that power to a load because to get it's full power, a cap/SC needs to go from full voltage to 0 volts so not only are SC ungodly expensive themselves but expensive to use.
And there are batteries like A123 that over 1 minute output easily creams SC's output by I bet 1,000x's of the cost. Even in the 1 second range A123 beats them in practical operations.
Even lead batteries/Bolder type beat SC's hands down on specific power of any length.
At this year's MD&M West show, lots of material suppliers are talking about new formulations for wearables and things that stick to the skin, whether it's adhesives, wound dressings, skin patches and other drug delivery devices, or medical electronics.
The US Congress has extended an important tax credit for solar energy, a move that’s good news for future investments in this type of alternative energy and for many stakeholders in the solar industry.
