The Super Supercapacitor

Ric Kaner set out to find a new way to make graphene, the thinnest and strongest material on earth. What he found was a new way to power the world.



Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Seriously, where’s the DIY manual for making graphene with a DVD player?!

  2. @Duane DIY manual: http://hackadaycom.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/laser-scribing-of-high-performance-and-flexible-graphene-based-electrochemical-capacitors.pdf

    The making of a graphene cap is not new, people at Northwestern University (among others) have been doing it for a long time, the neat part is doing it in a lightscribe DVD player. From my quick examination the materials they used:

    1A) PVA (cheap, readily available electrolyte but poor ion density compared to 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium
    tetrafluoroborat)

    or

    1B) d 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium
    tetrafluoroborate Expensive but great capacitance!

    2) Graphite oxide expensive as 1B, but maybe someone has a DIY we can make ours for less?

    3)Polyethylene terephthalate – cheap and readily available, can be substituted with photocopy paper or aluminum foil.

  3. yes, we want such thing opensource and with adafruit style tutorial!

  4. Duane:
    I’m with you there! This type of technology is incredible. Charging a phone in only a matter of seconds? It would make cords and wires practically obsolete for a wide range of electronics! Imagine being able to link this type of charge and storage capacity, with a renewable energy source like solar or wind turbines. I am very excited for what the next decade has in store for us.

  5. Its a great concept except I have seen this pop up time and time again and have yet to see/hear anything about the entire process behind it. Maybe I will dig into it again.
