Eamex Corp. is in a hurry to put its high-capacity capacitor to practical use.
The capacitor is a solid polymer electrolyte membrane whose surface is metal-plated to form electrodes.
It is a kind of hybrid capacitor. The specific surface area of its electrodes was expanded by improving the plate processing method to enhance the physical absorption effects. And the energy density of the capacitor was increased through an electrochemical reaction caused by using Li ions as electrolyte salt .
Major automakers showed a strong interest in its energy density, which is higher than those of Li-ion secondary batteries. And Eamex allegedly is discussing the commercialization of the capacitor with some manufacturers.
