Nowadays, smartphones are charged by ordinary lithium-ion batteries. It can charge mobile within half an hour or so. According to rumors, Samsung will release graphene batteries into its smartphones. It is able to charge smartphones within only half an hour. Earlier in 2017, According to Samsung, the development of graphene batteries is under process. However, research says, in theory, it would take only 12 minutes to charge the battery.
This is not the first time that graphene batteries are coming into use. Companies like Panasonic have been using graphene technology for their products before. Korea revealed the transparent graphene memory module as well. Samsung is making its way into graphene batteries to have easy-going displays.
Till now, the fastest Samsung’s 45W charger came up with Galaxy Note 10. It can charge Note 10 in just one hour. However, this claim of Samsung is still to be tested.
Blass, in his tweet, said
“Lithium-ion batteries are … suboptimal. Samsung is hoping to have at least one handset either next year or in 2021, I’m told, which will feature a graphene battery instead. Capable of a full charge in under a half-hour, they still need to raise capacities while lowering costs.”
Graphene vs Silicon Battery
This new technology involves one carbon atoms layer from graphite. This layer is called graphene. It is 100 times more productive than copper in terms of electrical conductivity. It also shifts energy, probably, 140 times faster as compared to silicon. Lithium-ion batteries are dependent on Silicon. It also serves as the best material to power batteries. Samsung told about these details back in 2017.
Charging Time Span
Till now, there are no further details about battery life with graphene battery. Smartphones, other than Samsung as well, need to charge on a daily basis to provide maximum functionality. Usually, batteries more than 4000mAH can take 2 days to drain off completely. The major issue which contributes to this problem is the running of applications in the background.
Anyhow, the final product has to be launched. We will keep you updated in this regard.
