In this study, the electrochemical performance of the electrode materials based on two commonly used binders -poly(vinylidene difluoride) (PVDF) and poly(tetrafluoroethylene) (PTFE)- was introduced. The electrochemical performance of the activated carbon electrodes was explored by performing cyclic voltammetry, galvanostatic charge-discharge, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy techniques. The results showed that the activated carbon electrode prepared at 500 degrees C with PTFE (AC-500-PTFE) exhibited higher capacitance values at low current rates than the one with PVDF (AC-500-PVDF). The results also revealed that the capacitance values of the AC-500-PVDF electrode for the current rates higher than 1.5 A g 1 were higher than the AC-500-PTFE electrode. The implemented transmission line equivalent circuit model for impedance showed that the capacitance inside the pores was higher for the AC-500-PVDF, and the higher capacitance on the electrode surface was obtained for the AC-500-PTFE. As a result, it is recommended to prefer PTFE binder for low current density, yet a PVDF binder for high current density applications.
