First of all, I'm very glad to have a chance to share my concerns and queries in a FORUM of Tesla Motors. I'm an armature researcher in Supercapacitor field, please help me to understand the field in a better way, thanks to all.
Now coming straight to my question:
While supercapacitor companies like Maxwell, Nanotunues are suffering to achieve an energy density higher than 20 Wh/kg,
there are many reports from several university labs worldwide , who reported values in a range 40 to almost 100 wh/kg.
My concern is, in which aspects these university results are not yet ready to be adopted by these frontier companies?
Are they not reproducible? or their measurement techniques are not reliable ? or there are other factors too? or these results are already under consideration and we have to wait for the near future time?
Or, are these research are those, based on what Nanotunes projects an energy density of 200 Wh/kg bby 2014?
