 Traditionally, rechargeable batteries have been used as energy dense products and the other devices based on capacitors have been used as power dense products. There are more-power-dense versions of the favourite rechargeable batteries - lithium-ion with 70% or so of the rechargeable battery market in 2023. Unfortunately, power dense rechargeable batteries surrender a lot of energy density. It is therefore helpful that more and more energy dense supercapacitors and variants are becoming available, some even matching lead acid batteries and yet retaining excellent power density. This convergence of properties has led to the widespread combination of the two in parallel, particularly in power applications. Battery/supercapacitor combinations approach the performance of an ideal...

Natural Antioxidants - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Natural antioxidants are mostly found in fresh food. They have the ability to remove harmful/toxic substances from body. They are chemically free radicals and stable in their own way and hence do not give away electrons. Antioxidants convert harmful toxins into harmless products which are excreted from body as waste products. They prevent the body from oxidation which produces free radicals and damages cells. Foods which are rich in natural antioxidants helps prevent cancer and also act as anti-aging agents. They also reduces risk of heart disease by significantly absorbing bad...
Electronic Toll Collection Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Toll when collected electronically in an attempt to eliminate the delay on toll roads is called electronic toll collection (ETC). Electronic toll collection debits the accounts of the owners of the registered cars without stopping. ETC alerts the system for the cars that have not been registered. Each car is equipped with a transponder. The transponder’s personalized signal would be picked when the car passes through an intersection. The information is passed on to the central computer and they would be charged accordingly. Types of electronic toll collection are single lane...
