Abstract : Wearable electronics have become a growing topic of interest for the application of energy storage devices. Supercapacitors have high energy densities compared to conventional capacitors, making them desirable for military applications. Supercapacitors have been fabricated with graphene to investigate its applicability for energy storage devices, as this carbonbased material has a large surface area and mechanical/chemical stability. In this study, we investigate the potential of graphene electrodes on Kevlar supports created using a dip-and-dry technique. This report demonstrates how applying different masses of graphene affects the specific capacitance of the Kevlar-supported graphene electrodes.
