OpiXtal, Inc. has developed a new kind of capacitor, which offers 10x the power of a battery-based energy source. Instead of being tightly wound and contained in heavy metal or ceramic cylinders like other commercially available capacitors, the new SuperXcap (tm) capacitors from OptiXtal are thin, light, flexible and can be easily stacked for added capacitance. SuperXcap capacitors are rated for 2.7 Volts and come in pouches equivalent to 5 or 25 Farads.

Given the high demand for battery operated electronics, this new bridge power SuperXcap capacitor could quickly help manufacturers create new or improved battery-powered products that are clearly superior to comparable products offered by the competition.

For example, SuperXcap 5F capacitors have almost 5x the power density by weight and are 1.5x more volumetrically efficient than other capacitors. This means they deliver more W/kg., for that extra power new applications could soon require. SuperXcap capacitors are not sensitive to temperature and deliver a constant charge from -40ºC to +50ºC plus users can count on at least 500,000 charge/discharge cycles before changeout may be required.

By delivering a burst of instantaneous power at the start of battery-driven devices, the OptiXtal SuperXcap can considerably extend a battery's length of service. Plus the SuperXcap re-charges itself in seconds, so it's always prepared for the next squeeze of the trigger.

SuperXcaps can be arranged in series, parallel, or any other design configuration where bridge technology makes sense. For more information on SuperXcap capacitors from OptiXtal contact us at http://www.optiXtal.com, or call 267-257-8139. One of our engineers will be glad to discuss the feasibility of including SuperXcaps in your next design.
