How supercapacitors work
Both supercapacitors and batteries are forms of energy storage, but supercapacitors are distinct from traditional chemical batteries in that they use static electricity to store energy rather than chemicals. Inside a supercapacitor, two metal plates build up electrical charges and store power. Sinetech’s supercapacitors are designed to maximize efficiency, offering a dependable solution for your power storage requirements.

What is the difference between supercapacitors and batteries?
While both supercapacitors and batteries serve as energy storage systems, they have distinct characteristics. Batteries offer a higher energy capacity over a more extended period, while supercapacitors excel in providing large amounts of energy rapidly. This attribute makes supercapacitors ideal for high-energy-demand applications, such as electric vehicles.
Is a supercapacitor better than a battery?
A supercapacitor is an energy storage system renowned for its ability to charge rapidly compared to traditional chemical batteries. They are used in solar energy storage and serve as reliable backup power solutions due to their rapid charge and discharge capabilities. Supercapacitor energy storage can provide power approximately 10 times faster than a battery, so depending on the use and energy output needs, supercapacitors are better than batteries for some applications, while batteries may be the better option in others.
What is battery storage?
Battery storage, also known as battery energy storage systems (BESS) are systems designed to store renewable energy like solar- or wind-generated energy. Supercapacitors fall into a different category (supercapacitor energy storage systems or SESS), though they serve the same purpose.
