Abstract

Chen et al. suggested a skin-contact type triboelectric energy harvesting device [Chen et al., J. Mater. Chem. A, 2017, 5, 12361], which can give a rise to an electrostatic charge issue adversely affecting a person's physical experience. Here we show that adoption of a higher ranking triboelectric material than skin on the positive electrode and size optimisation of the two electrodes can ensure both high power generation and resolution of the electrostatic charge issue.
