    Micro-supercapacitors (MSCs) hold great promise as highly competitive miniaturized power sources satisfying the increased demand in microelectronics; however, simultaneously achieving high areal and volumetric capacitances is still a great challenge. Here we demonstrated the designed construction of binder-free, electrically conductive, nanoporous activated graphene (AG) compact films for high-performance MSCs. The binder-free AG films are fabricated by alternating deposition of electrochemically exfoliated graphene (EG) and nanoporous AG with a high specific surface area of 2920 m2/g, and then dry transferring onto the target substrates with a high-pressure mechanical densification process. Remarkably, the resulting compressed AG films showed uniform morphology in lateral dimensions, high conductivity (60 S/cm), nanoporous feature (99.6% after 10,000 cycles). Our results suggested that AG-MSCs are competitive for prospective applications of miniaturized energy storage devices.
