PowerStor

PowerStor Capacitors, unique ultra-high capacitance devices based on a novel type of carbon foam-carbon Aerogel. The ultracapacitors are Electrochemical Double-Layer Capacitors, have 2,000 x the volumetric capacitance of standard aluminum electrolytic capacitors.

Manufacturer of Components

PowerStor Corporation is an independent and privately-held Northern California company that has developed a new class of supercapacitor called the Aerogel Capacitor. This patented product is a unique, ultra-high capacitance device that utilizes a novel material called carbon aerogel, sometimes referred to as "frozen smoke", and was developed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories under funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Department of Energy. Supercapacitors, also know as ultracapacitors, are uniquely positioned between a $15 + billion battery market and a $9 billion capacitor market. The Aerogel Capacitor's breakthrough low-resistance enables its use in pulse-power and electronic circuitry applications, which other types of supercapacitors cannot address. With its broad range of electronic applications, the Aerogel Capacitor is now available throughout the world through PowerStor's new strategic partner, Cooper Electronic Technologies, a global supplier of electronic circuit protection, power conversion and filtering components.
