Supercharge is a term primarily used in the context of internal combustion engines. It refers to a process by which an engine's overall power output and performance are increased by forcing more air into the combustion chamber than normally would be drawn in, allowing for more fuel to be burned and thus, creating more power. This is often achieved using a supercharger, a device powered by the engine, that compresses the incoming air to increase its density before it enters the engine. The term can also be used more generally to mean enhancing or energizing something significantly.
to charge (a bearing) upon another bearing; as, to supercharge a rose upon a fess
