Samsung’s Advanced Institute of Technology researchers has come up with a revolutionary technology that will let you charge your smartphone’s battery fully in 12 minutes only.
This can be done via graphene ball. Graphene balls have a unique battery material which offers 45% more capacity and 5-times charging speed as compared to usual lithium ions. On the other hand, these graphene balls are said to be stable even at 60-degree Celcius. Thus, you can use them freely without being afraid of unwanted mishaps.
This technological advancement won’t be enjoyed by smartphones only, Samsung has said that even vehicles and other devices running on batteries can enjoy it.
To be fair, it’s best for bigger machinery which gets heated while using. This can save a lot of damage as well money for the buyer. However, pricing still remains a bigger concern.
SAIT Project Lead, Son In-hyuk said that their research enables mass synthesis of multifunctional composite material graphene at an affordable price. They have also enhanced the capabilities of lithium-ion batteries in an environment where the markets for mobile devices and electric vehicles.
As for the graphene ball technology, Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology has already filed their patent in Korea as well as USA.
Graphene was first discovered by researchers at the University of Manchester in 2004. Graphene is the best conductor of heat and electricity. Transparent graphene is thinnest and lightest material ever!
Graphene sounds quite promising to me. If developed properly, it can be made to great batteries with quick charging and more ssafe as well. What do you think? Would you go for graphene batteries? Rather, would you go for graphene batteries even if they cost slightly more? I would.
