The Gravitational Mass of a Charged Supercapacitor

Authors: Fran De Aquino

Electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs), also known as supercapacitors, electrochemical double layer capacitors, or ultracapacitors, are electrochemical capacitors that have an unusually high energy density when compared to common capacitors, typically on the order of thousands of times greater than a high capacity electrolytic capacitor. It is shown here that when an EDLC is fully charged its gravitational mass is considerably greater than when it is discharged.
