Bottom Line: In this article, a new method is used to fabricate a high-performance triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG), which is convenient and cost-effective.The short-circuit current (I s) and open-circuit voltage (V o) of the TENG are up to 0.4343 mA and 236.8 V, respectively, and no significant change is observed by applying different frequencies of external impact forces from 1 to 10 Hz.Finally, we successfully drive an electrochromic device (ECD) directly using TENG within just 2 min for the first time.

ABSTRACT
In this article, a new method is used to fabricate a high-performance triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG), which is convenient and cost-effective. A polyformaldehyde (POM) film with novel structures is prepared through electrospinning and is combined with a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) film to assemble micro-nano structured TENG. The short-circuit current (I s) and open-circuit voltage (V o) of the TENG are up to 0.4343 mA and 236.8 V, respectively, and no significant change is observed by applying different frequencies of external impact forces from 1 to 10 Hz. Finally, we successfully drive an electrochromic device (ECD) directly using TENG within just 2 min for the first time.

Mentions: Moreover, Vo of the TENG was measured after more than 5000 cycles to test the electric output stability (Fig. 5). It shows that there is no obvious decline (Fig. 5a). This might be due to the retained morphologies of POM and PTFE that have enhanced friction (Fig. 5b, c).Fig. 5
