Electric vehicles have been around for about a century now. Today, manufacturers are scrambling to make an inexpensive EV that can go at least one hundred miles.
The most affordable of these electrics barely can reach eighty miles in everyday driving and require charge times that render long distance travel impossible.
Add the high purchase cost of these cars to the equation and suddenly these vehicles don't become an extremely practical decision for many people.
But what if your batteries could be charged faster than a fuel tank could be filled? What if you can challenge diesels for range? What if your smartphone's battery has the ability to last days, and not hours? What if a New York Times reporter didn't have to worry about Supercharger stations?
This accidental discovery could just change the world as we know it...Meet the Super Supercapacitor...
