    The more I read about these new 'supercapacitors' the more I think they are really creating new types of batteries. The science article says.
    "NITROGEN-DOPED MESOPOROUS CARBON OF EXTRAORDINARY CAPACITANCE FOR ELECTROCHEMICAL ENERGY STORAGE"
    How much of the energy storage is electrostatic vs electrochemical. A super capacitors sounds cooler than a regular battery.
