Samwha Electric Focus Product Line: Green Capacitors (EDLC)

General Information & Comparison to Batteries

Electric Double Layer Capacitors (EDLC), also referred to as “Supercapacitors”, are  next generation energy storage devices with excellent cycle characteristics. In Samwha’s product portfolio, they are called “Green Cap”. Through having the highest energy density among all capacitors, they close the gap between batteries and common capacitors. In order to reach higher voltages, single cells can be connected in series or parallel, resulting in supercapacitor modules. Despite the technology being around for some time, new application fields arise on a daily basis, enabling EDLCs a promising future. Especially in the energy, industrial, transportation and automotive sectors, Electric Double Layer Capacitors are suitable for various applications and enable significant advantages and cost savings compared to other solutions.
