On the basis of our recent research on multilayered graphene gel membranes, this talk will present our personal perspectives on the following questions: (1) What are the intrinsic limitations of the traditional porous carbon materials for application in supercapacitors? (2) What makes graphene unique for use as electrodes in supercapacitors beyond high specfici surface area? (3) Applications of supercaapcitors beyond energy storage.
