Printing technology has evolved from traditional quick writing tools to the modern manufacturing methods for functional devices and systems. The benefits of printing-based manufacturing include less material waste, fast-turn around prototyping due to simple design customization and wide substrate compatibility. In this presentation, all-printed supercapacitors, where all the components are made by printing, are introduced. Because the device is manufactured only by printing, the complexity of manufacturing facilities can be minimized and the resource efficiency and versatility are maximized, which are particularly important in places where the supply of material and human resources are limited such as rural areas, environmental monitoring of nuclear sites and space exploration missions. We have fabricated electrical double layer capacitors and pseudocapacitors, both with high electrochemical performance and cyclic durability and the results will be discussed in detail.
