Can Supercapacitors be used in place of batteries ?

AN ELECTRIC DOUBLE-LAYER capacitor (EDLC), also known,as supercapacitor, supercondenser,pseudocapacitor, electrochemical double layer capacitor, or ultracapacitor, is an electrochemical capacitor with relatively high energy density. Compared to conventional electrolytic capacitors the energy density is typically on the order of thousands of times greater. In comparison with conventional batteries or fuel cells, EDLCs also have a much higher power density.
