Electronic devices such as displays, sensors, and medical implants are well on their way to becoming flexible. But flexible power sources to operate them are only starting to catch up. Researchers now report a simple method to fabricate bendable supercapacitors that uses carbon nanoparticles from soot (ACS Nano, DOI: 10.1021/nn2041279).

Supercapacitors, like batteries, store energy. While batteries store and release charge through chemical reactions, supercapacitors store . . .
