# Electronic – Supercapacitor and an applied exterior magnetic field

I'm curious of the effects of an exterior magnetic field to a Supercapacitor, in both states of charging & discharging.

If the Supercap. is placed inside an area where an exterior magnetic field $$\B_{ext}\$$ is applied, while the capacitor is charged, and connected to a load, would the +/- ions move quicker(since the electrostatic force would push like charges away + the Lorentz force) from the double layer towards the electrolyte?

Likewise, for the case of charging, would the ions feel a force(Lorentz) while moving towards the electrode to form the double layer from their initial positions from the electrolyte?

Finally, if I moved the Supercap. in any state(charged/discharged) would the ions feel a Lorentz force(depending on $$\v_{SC}\$$)?

The exterior magnetic field can be in any direction $$\B_{ext}\$$ = $$\B\hat{i}\$$ , $$\B\hat{j}\$$ , $$\B\hat{z}\$$
