Anyone familiar with Super Capacitors? Has there been any changes regarding energy density and charging time.
Speaking off the top of my head, Graphene is the real thing. Super strong. Super fast heat transfer, has been mixed with Aluminum(Cummins has an engine that uses a mixture of Aluminum & Graphene). The polycrystalline/monocrystalline solar cells are said that their use in solar cells may be usurped by Graphene. Even CPU material may go from silicon to graphene. The heat transfer rate of graphene is much, much faster than Aluminum, such that engines may not need a water pump. Instead heat energy can be transferred into recoverable forms. Engines when compared to electric motors are significantly less efficient. Take 28/29% efficiency number for an engine running at a constant speed to a standard electric motor, 85/90% efficient. A sheet of Graphene could support an Elephant if you could put him on it and secure the ends of the sheet.
