Graphene 3D Lab has released a new video this week which demonstrates how they can print a Graphene 3D printed battery into almost any shape and that is capable of providing the equivalent power of a AA battery.
Dr. Daniel Stolyarov, chief technology officer and co-founder of Graphene 3D Lab explained in an interview that he hope the company will be able to start offering the graphene-enhanced filaments to consumers later this year. Watch the video after the jump to learn more.
The technology behind the new 3D printed battery technology has been submitted as a provisional application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The 3Ders website explains a little more about the new technology 3D battery printing :
“The company’s 3D printed graphene battery can potentially outperform a conventional battery because of its shape, size and specifications that can be freely adjusted to fit the particular design of almost any 3D printed device.
Graphene can be easily mixed with thermoplastics commonly used in FDM 3D printer. Currently the company is working on designing a mixture of plastics and graphene that can be turned into nanocomposite material filament.”
