Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) have developed long lasting battery what they name a ‘graphene ball’, a new and unique battery material will bind together and it will increased capacity and will also allow for much faster charging.
Samsung company has announced today that it has developed a new battery material, one that it has been researching on for a couple of years
now. researchers from the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) have developed long lasting battery what they name a ‘graphene ball’, a new and unique battery material will bind together and it will increased capacity and will also allow for much faster charging.
According to Samsung, a battery based on graphene ball technology can be charged five times faster than a standard lithium-ion battery.
The material which is inside the graphine can also boost battery capacity by up to 45 per cent, which is a huge increase in
“this the ‘graphene ball’ material requires only just 12 minutes to fully charge,” says Samsung samsung company.
“Additionally, this graphene battery can maintain a highly stable even in 60 degree Celsius temperature, with stable battery temperatures particularly key for electric vehicles.”
The company says graphene is 100 times more effective than copper at conducting electricity, and is also an “ideal” material for fast charging.
“Lithium-ion batteries were first introduced and commercialized in 1991, and widely applied to markets for mobile devices and electric vehicles,” says Samsung.
It has long been considered to be an alternative to Silicon and other forms of carbon, especially for processors and batteries.
This means it could turn out to be revolutionary for both smartphones and electric vehicles.
Samsung has explained the technology as: “This ‘graphene ball’ was utilised for both the anode protective layer and cathode
materials in lithium-ion batteries. This will ensured an increase of charging capacity smartphones, a decrease of charging
time as well as stable increase temperatures.”
