29 Nov 2017

Just recently Samsung Electronics announced its new battery technology that can charge mobile devices and electronic vehicles faster than ever before.

The announcement was made on Tuesday by Samsung’s Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT). The company claimed that its new battery technology can help charge devices within 12 minutes, as compared to the current fast-charge technology that usually takes up to an hour or 30 minutes.

Called ‘graphene ball’, the technology was made using a single layer of carbon atoms from graphite, graphene. Graphene is famous for its ability in being 100 times more effective than copper in conducting electricity and transferring 140 times faster than silicon that used in prevailing lithium-ion batteries. This property makes graphene a perfect material for fast charge, said Samsung.

The technology will increase the battery capacity by 45% and permit five times faster charging with a complete battery recharge in only 12 minutes. Also, the new battery technology can be used in electric vehicles with the ability to stand heat up to 60 degrees Celsius, wrote Mashable.

Business Insider reports that this new technology can also provide mobile devices and electric vehicles with an extended battery life as compared to today’s batteries, since they contain the potential for more capacity.

Lead researcher Dr. Son In-hyuk said, “We were able to considerably enhance the capabilities of lithium-ion batteries in an environment where the market for mobile devices and electric vehicles is growing rapidly. Our commitment is to continuously explore and develop secondary battery technology in light of these trends.”
