We present a fuel-independent self-charging biosupercapacitor comprising an oxygen reducing enzymatic biocathode and an opposing bioelectrode, where the supercapacitive properties of immobilized protein were utilized. Our findings disclose a novel hybrid type of bioelectrochemical systems, which can potentially be employed as autonomous power suppliers in substrate-deficient conditions.
