Paper Battery ultrathin flexible batteries and supercapacitors

Posted by – November 16, 2014

The Paper Battery Company develops super capacitors with very high energy and power density and flexible form factors. These devices recharge very quickly, and hold enough energy to take care of peak performance usage. The form factors that they are developing give designers more choices and options on how to fit power in previously unusable spaces. Applications for the Paper Battery technology range from mobile wearable devices to backup power in computing. They have two product lines that meet a varied set of needs, in all cases they can relieve battery anxiety, improve performance, and enable smaller, lighter products and reduce costs for the customer.
