  1. This one is one to watch as it may move quickly to an IPO once capable of production. From cell phones to EVs everyone has wanted a fast charge and long lasting battery. These super capacitors are even flexible. If this battery breakthrough makes it beyond the lab, waiting for a smartphone to charge could be a thing of the past. Excerpt: "Scientists have developed a method for creating small, flexible supercapacitors that could mean blisteringly fast charging times and more reliable batteries. While lithium-ion batteries can break after about 1,500 charges, this supercapacitor can be recharged 30,000 times before degrading, according to scientists at the University of Central Florida. Better yet, the supercapacitor can charge in a blink of an eye and wouldn't need topping up for a week. Supercapacitors use static electricity to store energy, as opposed to batteries which use an electrochemical reaction. "If they were to replace the batteries with these supercapacitors, you could charge your mobile phone in a few seconds and you wouldn't need to charge it again for over a week," said Nitin Choudhary, a postdoctoral associate and one of the main authors of a new paper detailing the process. The supercapacitors they've created are also flexible, which could help address one of the main pitfalls of devices such as the Apple Watch. Their supercapacitors are packed with millions of nanometer-thick wires wrapped in two-dimensional materials. "A highly-conductive core facilitates fast electron transfer for fast charging and discharging. And uniformly coated shells of two-dimensional materials yield high energy and power densities," the university explains. Jung is in the process of patenting the method. However, he warned it could be some time before this technology is seen in electronic gadgets and vehicles. "It's not ready for commercialization," Jung said. "But this is a proof-of-concept demonstration, and our studies show there are very high impacts for many technologies."
