Battery Vs super capacitor. Sounds simple, but the replacement of battery into super capacitor is happening in a full speed in a lot of applications. When I briefly studied them Both have its own pros and cons,(Size,capacity,charging and discharging rate,life cycle etc...).I want to know others opinion also. Is it possible to replace battery with super capacitor in coming years ?
I feel it will be possible to use super capacitors instead of batteries for special applications. Devices that are not size sensitive and run on very low currents may already be good candidates particularly for situations where routine charging is available. This is made possible by switch mode power supplies which can take a varying voltage input and provide a stable output voltage to power a device.
