Hybrid LIC supercapacitors deliver up to 220 Farads at 3.8V
CORNELL DUBILIER VMF and VPF Series of Hybrid LIC Supercapacitors meet growing need for ultra-high capacitance values at higher operating voltages. Product series operates at 3.8 WVdc with capacitance values up to 220 Farads. The higher voltage results in increased energy density. With nearly eight times the energy density and a fraction of the leakage current of similar volume 2.7V devices, designers can use smaller or fewer components to achieve the desired amount of energy storage. Both models have an advantage in applications with long standby and run times. Both series can deliver quick bursts of energy that may be used to maintain voltage when power is interrupted, or they may be used to extend battery life by reducing peak repetitive current demands on the battery. Due to their high energy storage capacity, some applications can use these components in place of costly batteries. Unlike batteries, hybrid supercapacitors do not degrade with each charge/discharge cycle. Devices are also inherently safer than batteries, with no risk of thermal runaway.
