  • Samsung's new 'graphene ball' tech promises 5x faster battery charging

There's a research paper you can read if you can handle all the terminology, although the bottom line is that it claims a battery capacity increase of 45 per cent within a comparable size as today's cells, along with that five-fold increase in charging time, because of. graphene magic. "Batteries that use graphene ball can also maintain a temperature of 60 degrees Celsius that is required for use in electric cars".

For a battery that takes an hour to fully charge, the usage of graphene ball will reduce charging time to as little as 12 minutes. The team successfully synthesized graphene the so-called balloon, which potentially can be used for the production of batteries support much faster charging than now. They then used the obtained graphene balls as a material for the anode and the cathode in traditional Li-ion batteries.

However, in a report recently published on scientific research website, it appears that Samsung Electronics has accomplished what could be the next step big step in smartphone battery tech.

Samsung has already patented the new technology in South Korea and the U.S. but there's no telling when it could make its way to smartphones.

With Samsung looking at a $4 billion-plus hit due to the Galaxy Note 7's explosive lithium-ion battery problems, how are the alternative technologies shaping up? It's a promising way to extend the life of lithium-ion batteries, a technology many see as being at the limits of its potential.

With the Graphene material in action, Samsung is also patching the temperature limitation of Li-ion cells to an extent.

On Monday, Samsung released the findings of its investigation into the failed Galaxy Note7 phones, concluding that irregularly-sized batteries led to the overheating issues.
