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