We developed activated carbon from the Aegle marmelos fruit shell also known as Beli. Firstly, its carbonaceous process is done by a typical process. H3PO4 treatment was used to activate the carbonaceous material. Activated material is characterized by using Scanning Electron Microscope and Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) specific surface areas. Calculated BET surface area of the fabricated supercapacitor is 517 m2/g. Electrochemical characterization was carried out through cyclic voltammetry, charge/discharge and electrochemical impedance spectro-scopy. Highest specific capacitance of 59 F/g and energy density of 8.19 kW/h for highest specific capacitance was obtained from the charge discharge curve. Obtained equivalent serial resistance is 0.414 O from equivalent circuit.

Keywords: Activated carbon, Beli fruit shell, Specific capacitance, Supercapacitors.
