Advantages of EDLC
· High Capacity – High Power
o Higher capacitance than Electrolytic capacitors, Higher power than secondary batteries
o Non-Chemical based charging-discharge mechanism provides safety from hazard factors compared to secondary batteries
· Environmentally Friendly / Easy-Acquirable Materials.
o Using carbon as the main material, it is free from pollutions & easy to acquire unlike Lithium(Li) – based secondary batteries.
· Rapid Charge / Discharge
o Ability to reduce charge & discharge time
· Semi-Permanent Life
o Million times of charge-discharge cycle. Semi-permanent life cycle
