The New Lithium ion capacitor (LIC1235R3R8406) is a hybrid type of capacitor out of the family of the supercapacitors from Taiyo Yuden.

The anode of the  LIC1235R3R8406 consists of carbon material which is pre-doped with lithium ion. This pre-doping process lowers the potential of the anode and allows a relatively high output voltage compared with other supercapacitors.

Electric double-layer capacitors (EDLC) are electrochemical capacitors which energy storage predominant is achieved by Double-layer capacitance. In the past, all electrochemical capacitors were called “double-layer capacitors”. However, since some years it is known that double-layer capacitors together with pseudocapacitors are part of a new family of electrochemical capacitors called supercapacitors, also known as ultracapacitors. Supercapacitors do not have a conventional solid dielectric.

EDLCs are used to store electric power and are commonly used as a battery backup. Major problem with EDLCs is that they get self discharged. Self discharging means capacitor gradually loses its charge over time. Self discharge occurs rapidly if the capacitor is kept in high temperature environment.

Thermal runaway is a phenomenon where due to hike in temperature, the device changes condition and leads to more temperature hike which may cause destruction. In LIC1235R3R8406 the problem of thermal runaway is solved hence no risk of destruction occurs. LIC1235R3R8406are used in devices especially medical devices to reduce voltage fluctuation. It keeps the power flow steady.

Metallic lithium, electrically connected to the negative electrode, forms a local battery at the same time as immersion of the electrolytic solution. Then, doping of lithium ions begins on the carbon-based material at the negative electrode. Once doping is complete, the initial voltage of the LIC1235R3R8406 drops to 3V or less as the electric potential of the negative electrode almost matches that of lithium. Therefore, compared to the charging /discharging potential of conventional EDLCs, a higher voltage can be obtained by using LIC1235R3R8406 without a high potential at the positive electrode, which results in improved reliability in LIC1235R3R8406.



LIC1235R3R8406 have stable discharge no matter what temperature fluctuations are! Volume maintenance rate is around 60% at even -20 degree Celsius. Capacitance of the LIC1235R3R8406 is about 88 mAh at the range of 3.8 V to 2.2 V. LIC1235R3R8406 uses carbon- based materials such as activated carbon, which does not contain oxygen. This reduces the chances of damage when short circuit occurs. LIC1235R3R8406 are very lightweight and saves space.
