In recent years, supercapacitors are attracting great attention as one kind of electrochemical energy storage device, which have a high power density, a high energy density, fast charging and discharging, and a long cycle life. As a solution processing method, printing technology is widely used to fabricate supercapacitors. Printable nanomaterials are critical to the fabrication of high-performance supercapacitors by printing technology. In this work, the advantages of printing technology are summarized. Moreover, various nanomaterials used to fabricate supercapacitors by printing technology are presented. Finally, the remaining challenges and broad research as well as application prospects in printing high-performance supercapacitors with nanomaterials are proposed. View Full-Text
