|Skeleton Technology's ultracapacitor|
At the heart of the ultracapacitors' performance advantage is Skeleton?s nanotechnology research into patented curved graphene. Curved graphene differs significantly from regular activated carbons, which are used by other ultracapacitor manufacturers. All competitors use organic pre-cursor materials, mostly carbon made from coconut, Skeleton is the only company to use an inorganic pre-cursor and has patented the synthesis process for the proprietary material. The use of curved graphene is one of the key factors in achieving the superior energy density of our ultracapacitors.
Skeleton Technologies has also achieved one of the lowest ESR (equivalent series resistance) levels on the market. This factor is crucial as it greatly increases the efficiency of the cells by reducing the amount of energy that is lost as heat. This is also an advantage because cooling systems can be downsized or removed altogether.
