DIY supercapacitor fabrication

  1. Nov 15, 2015 #1
    Greetings. I started a new project, I am trying to establish a basic fabrication method so I can test different common household electrolytes when placed between two activated carbon electrode.


    The main problem I am having is getting the activated carbon to adhere to the aluminum foil.
    Suggestions welcome.

    This is my first chemistry project and I only have access to common household items.
    I am a fabricator and I just started to study chemistry. Skill level basic...

    Do electrolytes have different size ions?

    They sure do ! You can even look them up, e.g. here. For composite ions e.g. here
