Electrochemical Techniques for
Knowing the exact specifications when testing batteries.
Super-capacitors are energy storage devices similar to secondary batteries. Unlike batteries, which use chemical reactions to store energy, super-capacitors generally store energy through the physical separation of electrical charges.
This application note is Part of 2 describing electrochemical techniques for energy-storage devices. It explains Gamry’s PWR800 measurement software and describes techniques to investigate electrochemical capacitors. This application note can also be extended to testing batteries.
