The team claim they have developed this wearable power source – a supercapacitor – which works like a fast-charging battery and can be recharged multiple times. According to NTU, its supercapacitor has the ability to have its structure and shape edited after it is manufactured, while retaining its function as a power source. This invention is said to have the capability to be stretched multi-directionally and is less likely to be mismatched when it is joined up to other electrical components. When edited into a honeycomb-like structure, the team say that the device is able to store an electrical charge four times higher than most existing stretchable supercapacitors. They also claim that when stretched to four times its original length, it maintains nearly 98% of the initial ability to store electrical energy, even after 10,000 stretch-and-release cycles. The team experime...
