Most notably, the last three decades that preceded the recent world environmental issues were marked by increasingly prevalent concerns due to environmental pollution and an inadequate energy supply because of increased energy demand. Prodigious research efforts are being pursued in the development of light and wearable energy-storage systems as a result of the substantial energy demand that is expected to rise. For wearable applications, where charging and discharging take place predominantly at one time, including the variability, flexibility, and low cost, textile-based energy-storage devices are especially well-suited. Multifunctional wearable electronic appliances, such as clothing, can use textile-based energy-storage systems that are lightweight, flexible, have high environmental and thermal stability, as well as high conductivity. The present article takes a bird's-eye view of supercapacitors (SCs), as well as their structural and electrochemical properties, and focuses on these devices from the standpoint of supercapacitor materials. This research presents a new SC platform that can help advance the performance of portable and wearable electronic appliances in the next generation.
