    In some sources I found info that main limiting factor of supercapacitors energy
    density is breakdown strength of its electrolyte.Usually it can withstand voltage
    of only 4-5 volts.
    In the same time usual electrolytic capacitors can withstand voltages up to 400-500
    volts and over.
    Do they use different type of electrolytes or what the matter?
