#Supercapbatteries, Thermoelectrics to Power Future Cars #EV

PORTLAND, Ore. -- A new type of electric power storage unit that combines the best of supercapacitors and lithium ion batteries, combined with thermoelectric charging from heat of engines, could be the ideal power source for future vehicles -- from cars to industrial trucks to military convoys, according to Peter Harrop, chairman of IDTechEx Ltd. in Cambridge, United Kingdom. "Supercabatteries have battery and supercapacitor properties, usually intermediate between the two. While there are lead-acid- and nickel-battery-based versions, the main attention is on ones with a lithium-ion battery electrode and a supercapacitor electrode," Harrop told EE Times. "These asymmetric electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLC) are otherwise known as lithium-ion capacitors. They are a promising option for replacing lithium-ion batteries and supercapacitors in automotive applications...
