Energy storage is called to be one of the enablers of the full connectivity of the modern world. We all want all-day (or all-week!) battery life for our smartphones and gadgets, but there’s much more to it. Supercapacitors, in contrast to batteries, can be used to power low energy devices with a virtually infinite lifetime, and with new fabrication techniques such as laser pyrolysis, graphene electrodes can be made in a low cost and quick way. Interconnected sensor networks, wearable electronics and other IoT applications, including health, will benefit soon from the application of these graphene supercapacitors, but still some challenges must be overcome.
