Samsung is working on graphene batteries that can be fully charged in 12 minutes

It is undeniable that the battery life of our smartphones have come a long way. However, Samsung is looking to further improve them, as it is working on creating graphene batteries instead of lithium ones. According to Samsung, graphene batteries would be able to uphold a stagnant temperature of 60 degrees Celsius, while being able to full charge in just 12 minutes.

On top of that, these batteries would have 45 percent more capacity than a lithium battery. Scientists stumbled across the graphene ball material while attempting to mass synthesize graphene due to its strength and conductivity which is important when it comes to manufacturing batteries. The batteries are able to achieve quicker charging and higher capacity after the graphene is mixed with silica to form balls.

Right now, it is unknown when Samsung devices will start using these batteries, though Samsung did apply for two patents on its technology.
