Metallized paper makes for flexible, foldable supercapacitors

The new supercapacitor, made from metallized paper, can be folded up without losing its conductivity

If batteries are the marathon runners of the energy storage world, then supercapacitors are sprinters: great for short bursts of power but not so great long-term. Now engineers from Georgia Tech and Korea University have developed a new supercapacitor that’s designed to store more energy for longer – and it’s made out of ordinary paper, meaning it’s flexible enough to power wearable electronics.
