The Carbon electrodes made from areca husk biomass materials have been successfully prepared and characterized. Preparation of carbon electrodes start with the pre-carbonization process, destruction of pre-carbon samples by using Ball Milling and sieving carbon powder for resulting particle size of <53 µm. Pre-carbonized powder is chemically activated using a 0.5 M KOH activator and continued by pellet forming by using Hydraulic Press. The carbonization process was carried out at a temperature

Physical properties analyzed include density, morphological structure and elemental content. The electrochemical properties were analyzed using the cyclic voltammetry (CV) method. The best density analysis result after carbonization-activation is 0.664 in SP-2.5 sample. The highest specific capacitance as high as 17.9 F / g found in the SP-1.5 sample.
