Cloth's got the power! The structural engineering of supercapacitors for high-areal energy and voltage output is presented. Several layers of textile loaded with active materials were laminated to construct individual electrodes, which enabled fold-increased areal capacitance and energy density. Ten unit cells with solid-state electrolyte were stacked together to form a tandem device with a 10 V output (see figure).
