The electromechanical behavior of a flexible, solid state supercapacitor is examined. The structural-electronic material is characterized with galvanostatic charge–discharge with in situ microtensile testing. The capacitance increases by ≈10% as the supercapacitor is mechanically loaded, which is attributed to enhanced electrode–electrolyte interaction. Nanoindentation is used to show improved local mechanical behavior of the composite electrode with respect to the neat polymer electrolyte.
