One HEC of a material: The use of trigol-reduced graphene oxide nanosheets as cathode material in hybrid lithium-ion electrochemical capacitors (Li-HECs) results in an energy density of 45 Wh kg−1; much enhanced when compared to similar devices. The mass loading of the active materials is optimized, and the devices show good cycling performance. Li-HECs employing these materials outperform other supercapacitors, making them attractive for use in power sources.
