The Koreans have just received a patent for what was called a "graphene ball". More specifically, it is a solution that effectively improves existing batteries. How does it work?

The SAIT (Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology) is responsible for the creation of the patent and the development of the "graphical ball". The ball is supposed to be an add-on to lithium-ion batteries that have been in use for a long time. And that's pretty much because the benefits are really great. First, the "graphene ball" allows you to achieve a higher energy density – up to 45% more than a traditional cell. Second and in my opinion the most important, the use of the ball will make a significant acceleration of battery charging. Samsung boasts that the lithium-ion battery in the Galaxy Note 8 takes about an hour to fully charge. Thanks to "graphene ball" this time can be reduced to 12 minutes . Five. Do you imagine it? The latest innovation introduced by the ball, which is also important from the point of view of using mobile devices – is the temperature. This solution is able to withstand temperatures up to 60 degrees Celsius. Of course, at this moment it is not known when and whether Samsung will eventually implement a "ball" for its mobile devices and other devices. I certainly would not expect it to happen next year. Nevertheless, this is another step to change your current habits and improved battery life. Keep it up. Source: ZDNet
