With the advent of thin high energy density super capacitors, new value based increased power and energy density are now available to designers who are frustrated with short battery life and transportation safety in mobile devices. This presentation will cover fast charging, high energy density supercaps that may replace batteries in some applications where a full charge in minutes allows for functional use for hours; increasing the operational capability of small lithium batteries by increasing the power density in battery/capacitor combinations; and Supercapacitors enabling hot swap for small lithium batteries applications. These innovative approaches to reducing battery runtime anxiety in smaller, high pulse power mobile devices are driven by breakthroughs in super capacitor technology which are commercially available today.
