Vishay's Electric double-layer capacitors are two-terminal energy storage products that collect voltage as current flows through an electric circuit. These devices are available from RS Components. These capacitors generate electrical field between two conductor plates and are additionally known as supercapacitors.
The Vishay 25F Supercapacitor EDLC is a polarized energy storage capacitor with high capacity and energy density and offers a rated voltage of 3V. The device is available in through-hole (radial) version. The device has a useful life of up to 2000h at 85C. The device provides rapid charge and discharge and is maintenance-free, with no service necessary.
Typical applications include power backup, burst power support, storage device for energy harvesting, micro UPS power source, and energy recovery.
