Yesterday we heard some details about some new battery technology that Samsung has been working on. Samsung has created a new graphene based smartphone battery that will charge considerably faster than existing smartphone batteries.
Samsung has now revealed some more details about the technology, the company has developed a new graphene ball which is going to be used as a new battery material. This new material will increase battery capacities by around 45% and also reduce charging times.
These new graphene based batteries can be used in smartphones and also other devices and they will also be able to be used in electric vehicles. With an increase in capacity of around 45% and faster charging of about 5X the current batteries, this could bring some significant changes to electric vehicles.
Recently, a team of researchers at the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) developed a “graphene* ball,” a unique battery material that enables a 45% increase in capacity, and five times faster charging speeds than standard lithium-ion batteries. The breakthrough provides promise for the next generation secondary battery market, particularly related to mobile devices and electric vehicles. In its research, SAIT collaborated closely with Samsung SDI as well as a team from Seoul National University’s School of Chemical and Biological Engineering.
As yet there are no details on how long it will take for this new technology to reach our devices, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know.
