Abstract: 

To develop a technology to combine the technical advantages of both batteries and electrical double Layer Capacitors (EDLCs) into a single electrical storage device for electric vehicles (EVs). The approach is to mechanistically integrate battery reactions into the configuration of EDLCs to create a new energy device that can be charged in less than 2 minutes (compared to hours for batteries), meet or exceed the lifetime of EVs, and deliver much higher power density than any battery.
