In electrical double layers, also known as supercapacitors, there are no Faradaic reactions; excess ion accumulation near the electrode surface is the underlying phenomena for energy storage. Typically, high surface area activated carbon electrodes are used. Ionic liquids (ILs) with their wide electrochemical window can enhance energy storage capability of these devices since energy is proportional to the squared voltage. How an ionic liquid wets the activated carbon electrode effects the device performance.
