Real Graphene on the Android Authority Podcast

Posted on Leave a comment

Real Graphene has brought one of the first graphene batteries to market and people are taking notice. There has been a fair amount of industry buzz, excited to check out our battery and see if it delivers on all of the promises we make.

There are a handful of companies out there claiming to already provide graphene enhanced batteries. But in reality, they are actually delivering graphite batteries. Graphene certainly comes from graphite, but graphite itself is three dimensional. Graphene is two dimensional. This means graphite enhanced batteries are definitely not the same as graphene. In fact, they are not able to offer any of the speed, temperature control and lifespan that a Real Graphene battery can.

This is why all eyes are on us, as we bring a true superfast charging battery to market. Our CEO Samuel Gong, sat down with the team at the Android Authority Podcast to talk about our revolutionary graphene battery.

Android Authority Podcast

We were thrilled to be invited on the Android Authority Podcast. Gong sat down with host Adam who had been using our Real Graphene battery to try it out.

After using and reviewing our graphene battery, Adam states while he was a little surprised by the weight of the power bank, he couldn’t believe how fast it actually helped charge his smartphone. Most phone battery charges take up to a couple hours to go from zero to one hundred, while our graphene battery charges smartphones in under 50 minutes. Adam explains, “The real benefit to this thing is [the phone] charged from 25% to 100% in 45 minutes. It was actually really insane.”

Gong adds, “The updated model will actually have a more efficient chip so we’ll bring that time down even more.”

There was even more excitement in the room when Gong revealed that the upcoming model will be a 10,000 mAh battery with a 100 Watt charger that will charge your phone in a little over twenty minutes. If that isn’t a superfast charging battery, then I don’t know what is!

One thing Gong was very clear about is that unlike the companies we’ve mentioned above, we use real graphene. It’s not just a buzz word here, it’s our namesake. If you’re looking for a true graphene battery that delivers all of the benefits of graphene, simply add our battery to your cart to experience it for yourself.

Real Graphene and Microsoft Power Lunch

Posted on Leave a comment

Real Graphene is bringing graphene batteries to the market and everyone is taking notice. Recently, our CEO Samuel Gong had a closed-door meeting with Microsoft President Brad Smith.

Held at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, this was an exciting development for the future of the Real Graphene brand. Many industry leaders were in attendance to discuss a variety of topics in upcoming technology. While we can’t reveal all that was discussed, Gong and Smith had a lengthy conversation about how each views the societal integration of advancing technologies.

After the lunch, talks steered toward the promise of graphene batteries and Real Graphene. We are ready to bring our revolutionary graphene battery technology to the market. Our superfast charging battery means quicker wait times and a longer life-span. Graphene batteries also mean lower temperatures while charging. This will radically impact the battery industry for many years to come.

Graphene is the perfect partner for a lithium battery as it acts as a cooling system. Graphene batteries also guards devices against surges, enhances charging speed and battery life-span.

Graphene is able to conduct heat evenly across the battery, which dramatically helps to increase charge times. No other compound this thin can conduct electricity and heat so perfectly. And no one is more excited about this than us at Real Graphene.

Can graphene batteries be in Microsoft’s future? Currently, our power banks can be used to charge all of Microsoft’s Surface devices. But how much faster could a device charge if a Real Graphene battery was integrated into the Surface devices themselves? Charging speeds would soar, which could prove to be very appealing to the Microsoft consumer. Gong looks forward to continuing talks with Smith on how Real Graphene can be a battery game changer for Microsoft.

The Top 5 Things To Know About Graphene

Posted on Leave a comment

Graphene is still very much a new discovery for many. Most people know little to nothing about graphene and how much it can mean to the present and future of battery technology. At Real Graphene, we never would’ve been able to build a superfast charging battery without it. Today, we are going to take a look at the top five things to know about graphene. This will help you better understand just what graphene is and exactly how it works.

1. The Make-up of Graphene

In order to understand how graphene works, we first need to learn where it comes from. Graphene comes from graphite and is the flaky stuff you’ll find in pencil lead. It is two dimensional and only one atom layer thick. But its thinness doesn’t stop it from being up to100x stronger than steel. In fact, two layers of graphene can even be bulletproof. Graphene is no ordinary compound.

2. Accelerates Battery Speed

One of the most exciting things about graphene batteries is how graphene dramatically increases charging speeds. For instance, a typical smartphone charging battery will take a phone from zero to one hundred percent charged in ninety minutes or longer. A Real Graphene battery gets the job done in under fifty minutes! We are currently working on a power bank that will get that time down to close to twenty minutes. Graphene makes this possible.

3. Graphene Creates Longer Life Cycles

There’s nothing more annoying than spending money on something you already have. Graphene enhanced batteries last much, much longer than your regular phone charger. On average, most chargers last 300-500 charge cycles. Add graphene to that battery and you’ll get up to 1500 charge cycles! Graphene batteries give you a much better bang for your buck.

4. Heat Conductor

You might be wondering how graphene batteries are able to deliver such fast charging times and how they can last so long. The answer lies in the temperature. Part of graphene’s magic is that it acts as a near perfect conductor of heat and electricity. When placed in a lithium battery, graphene is able to prevent the battery from overheating. This allows for faster charging times and a longer lifespan.

5. Graphene is Here

Perhaps the biggest misconception about graphene is that it exists only on the horizon. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Graphene is here, now. Looking for a superfast charging battery? You can purchase our graphene enhanced batteries today. At Real Graphene, we are excited to be at the forefront of making graphene a reality.

The Anatomy of a Graphene Battery

Posted on Leave a comment

It is our privilege at Real Graphene to provide a safer, faster and long-lasting charging battery. Our secret ingredient is of course, the “supermaterial” known as graphene. We use a propriety method to create the graphene we use in our batteries. You may be wondering, how we are able to build this superfast charging battery? We’d like to give you a glimpse inside what makes a Real Graphene battery.

It All Starts With…Lithium?

The batteries that are used to charge your smartphone are lithium. Lithium batteries are great and an industry standard. We aren’t re-inventing the wheel by starting with a lithium battery. It’s the next step that changes everything. By adding graphene to the lithium, we’ve created a superfast charging battery that charges up to five times faster than a regular lithium battery. We add the graphene to the lithium in two distinct ways. First, we mix our graphene solution directly with the lithium. Secondly, we add a thin composite layer on top of the battery. These two graphene enhancements create major changes in how the lithium battery performs.

What’s Inside?

A Real Graphene battery consists of many parts. We start with a tempered glass shell above the metal plate. Inside the device, you’ll find a wireless charging coil and the graphene composite battery. Outside is aluminum alloy. There you’ll find our display counter. Next to it are two type A USB ports, plus a micro USB type B port for charging. There’s also a micro USB type C port for both charging and discharging.

At Real Graphene, we recognize what a major breakthrough our batteries are to the charging world. However, phone charging is just the beginning. We are already envisioning and working to create graphene batteries for smartphones themselves, laptops, smart-watches and even golf carts. The future is already underway at Real Graphene.

Lithium Plus Graphene Equals Speed

Posted on Leave a comment

Graphene is one of the most exciting scientific discoveries of the last twenty years. It is an extraordinarily bountiful compound for being only one atom thick. Aside from it’s incredible properties, graphene becomes a superpower when paired with other compounds. One of the first ways graphene is being introduced to the public is through its pairing with lithium batteries. Lithium mixed with graphene is a match made in battery heaven. Let’s take a look at how we’ve created a superfast charging battery by combining the powers of both graphene and lithium.

Temperature Control

You may not be aware, but lithium batteries have a few hindering limitations. One of the biggest issues lithium batteries face is heat. As a lithium battery begins to charge, it’s temperature starts to rise. This increases the resistivity of the conductor. The hotter the battery gets, the higher the resistivity climbs. This is how batteries catch fire. The beauty of graphene is how it acts as an ideal heat conductor. When paired with lithium, the electricity flows without any hindrance. This slows down the heating process for the lithium and allows the graphene to act as a cooling system. A cooler battery enables it to do its job to full capacity. Which leads us to our next benefit: speed.

Speed

Thanks to the amazing temperature control graphene offers, speed is dramatically increased. Our superfast charging batteries can charge up to five times faster than a regular phone charging battery. Most phones charge in ninety minutes, give or take. Our graphene batteries charge in under fifty minutes!

Graphene has been an absolute game changer when it comes to lithium. From temperature control to speed, graphene and lithium have proven to be a powerful duo that will no doubt change the future of charging.

Graphene Batteries Are a Major Breakthrough

Posted on Leave a comment

Discovered in 2004, graphene has showed immense promise for a faster charging and longer-lasting battery. However, in the fifteen years since it’s discovery, nothing has come to market to fulfill that promise. At Real Graphene, we have made the breakthrough others have patiently been waiting for. We have finally been able to release a consumer level graphene battery for purchase.

Graphene Comes From Graphite

Before we get into how exciting the development of graphene batteries is, it’s important to know exactly where graphene comes from. Graphene’s origins are in graphite, which is used to make lead pencils. Graphite is a 3D arrangement of carbon atoms. When you change the arrangements of the atoms to a 2D structure that is flat, you have graphene. This unlocks incredible physical properties. Only one atom thick, it is over 100x stronger than steel! In fact, only two atomic layers of graphene can be bulletproof. Lastly (and most importantly when it comes to batteries), graphene is the best conductor of electricity and heat known to man.

Real Graphene Delivers

We are proud to say we have beaten everyone to market with our very own graphene battery. Our battery delivers on the charging capabilities graphene has been promising.

Most phone batteries have about 3000mAh, which takes roughly 90 minutes to get a complete charge. With a Real Graphene battery, you can accomplish a full charge in 50 minutes when using a 60 Watt charging brick.

Are Graphene Batteries Safe?

Graphene batteries are so powerful, some may wonder if they are in fact, safe. It may surprise you to learn that graphene batteries are actually safer than a typical phone charging battery. This is because the cell generates much less heat and runs much cooler.

Our CEO Samuel Gong explains, “Graphene is an amazing conductor of heat and electricity. Lithium doesn’t like it when you put a lot of energy in and when you take energy out. We’ve applied graphene in two different ways. We mix it in the solution with lithium. Plus, we’ve added a composite layer, like a sheet of it, in the lithium battery. It acts like a conductor and doesn’t generate as much heat.”

The wait is over. Graphene batteries are here and they are safe. At Real Graphene, we are honored and thrilled to share the power of graphene batteries with the world.

What Does Graphene Mean to Our Future?

Posted on Leave a comment

Real Graphene is proud to be a pioneer in the graphene battery world. We’ve created a superfast charging battery that lasts longer than any typical phone charging battery on the market. What graphene is doing for phone battery charging is nothing short of revolutionary. But graphene has a lot more up its sleeve than just a phone battery charging application. What’s the most exciting part about graphene technology? All of the possibilities to come.

The Future of Graphene Batteries

At Real Graphene, we are already in talks with many industry partners to provide batteries. In fact, we’ve already built them and testing is underway. You can take a look at our power lunch with Microsoft President, Brad Smith, here.

We are currently working on making graphene batteries for everything from smart-watches to battery-powered golf carts.

According to our CEO Samuel Gong, “We’ll be seeing graphene batteries in actual big brand devices within a year. Not in every single device, but trickling down from the higher end first. People think graphene is a thing of the future. But I’m here to correct them. It’s here, now.”

What about other companies that claim to already be producing graphene batteries? The truth is most of these companies are actually using graphite, graphene’s third dimensional cousin. Graphene is two dimensional. What this means is the batteries using graphite don’t have any of the benefits offered by graphene. It is simply a marketing gimmick and many people don’t know the difference. The speed, the lower temperatures and the lifespan are only unique to graphene.

Looking Toward Tomorrow

When graphene technology is fully matured, it could mean a world of difference not only for mobile phones and laptops, but even electric cars, electric planes and grid energy storage. Graphene has the power to change material science and engineering as we know it.

Superfast Charging With Our Graphene Battery Power Bank

Posted on Leave a comment

Are you tired of waiting close to two hours every single day to charge your phone? What if you could charge your phone in half the time? Our superfast charging battery power bank will charge your smartphone in as little as 50 minutes. What’s our secret? You’ve guessed it, graphene.

What is Graphene?

Graphene is a lattice of carbon atoms only one layer thick. It is known as a “supermaterial” because it is incredibly powerful for being so thin. You might recognize graphene as the tiny, flaky bits that are used in pencil lead. We’ve all used graphene at some point, even if we may not have realized it.

Graphene has so many more possibilities than just pencil lead. One of the most exciting developments in graphene technology is how powerfully it can aid in battery charging. We’ve created a consumer level graphene battery that delivers the fastest charge possible.

How Does It Work?

When you combine composite graphene inside the electrodes of a battery you can actually change the characteristics of the battery. One of the examples of this the much faster charging times.

Another amazing feature is just how perfectly graphene conducts heat. With lithium batteries, heat is a huge concern. At Real Graphene, we mix the graphene solution with the lithium battery, as well as add a composite layer of graphene to the battery itself. The result is a cooler battery that lasts longer and charges faster.

The G-Pro

Our G-Pro Series 10,000 mAh external battery pack is the graphene battery you’ve been looking for. It’s small and compact which makes it perfect for when you’re on the go.

Our display counter shows how much power it has inside of it at any given time. You’ll also find two type A USB ports, plus a micro USB type B port for charging. There’s also a micro USB type C port for both charging and discharging.

Additionally, our superfast charging battery acts as a wireless charging pad. If you have a smartphone that allows for wireless charging, the G-Pro Series has you covered. Simply rest your phone on top of the power bank and you can start charging.

Now, let’s get to the best part. How quickly does it charge? Our graphene battery takes you from a 0-100% charge in as little as 50 minutes! It also lasts up to 1500 charge cycles, compared to most other batteries that can only last 300-500 cycles.

Real Graphene provides a one year warranty on all purchases, so you can try our amazingly fast graphene batteries, risk free. Start charging your devices faster with the G-Pro Series graphene battery.

The Evolution of Our Graphene Batteries

Posted on Leave a comment

Graphene was discovered in 2004, when scientists Andrew Giem and Konstantin Novoselov created the sample from graphite. Ever since then, the world has been waiting to see graphene in action. At Real Graphene, we’ve created a superfast charging battery that lasts longer and is completely portable. Today, we’re going to take a look at exactly how we are able to produce such a revolutionary graphene battery.

Why Graphene?

Graphene is an incredibly thin compound that is filled with enormous potential. It is only one atom thick, but provides a few key elements that are perfect for advancing batteries. Graphene acts as the ultimate heat and electricity conductor which enables the lithium battery to stay much cooler. This in turn allows for rapid charging speeds, up to five times as fast as your typical phone battery. Another amazing benefit of a graphene enhanced battery is its advanced lifespan. A normal phone battery charger lasts from 300-500 charge cycles. Our graphene batteries will last you up to 1500 charge cycles.

How Are Graphene Batteries Made?

In order to make graphene enhanced batteries, you need to start with transforming graphene into sheet form. This is a very complex process and used to be prohibitively costly. Only a few years ago, a single kilo of graphene cost a colossal $300,000 USD. Fortunately, there have been many improvements in the manufacturing process which has allowed the cost to start falling. For instance, back in 2010 the cost of one cubic centimeter was one thousand dollars. Now, it’s only one cent. And your average sheet costs around twenty-five dollars. This has paved the way for Real Graphene to be able to bring a consumer level graphene battery to the masses.

Our CEO Samuel Gong adds, “It’s easy for us to scale up because we make the graphene.” We also make the chipset used for charging at Real Graphene.

To make a graphene battery, we introduce graphene into the actual lithium and mix the solution together. Secondly, we add a single sheet of graphene as a composite layer to the lithium battery.

This two-pronged approach allows us to produce a superfast charging battery that delivers on all of the promises graphene offers.

The Future of Batteries is Here

Posted on Leave a comment

The benefits of graphene have always been an exciting prospect. But when you hear about actually putting it to use, the news points to the future and not the present.

Here at Real Graphene, we are putting graphene into action today. The future is happening now and we’re ready to charge your phone at lightning speed.  Our CEO, Samuel Gong explains, “People always think graphene is a thing of the future, but I’m here to correct them. It’s here now.”

So, what exactly is a graphene battery? It is a superfast charging battery that lasts longer than its non-graphene counterparts, all while emitting lower temperatures during charging.

Let’s look more at what this means for the consumer. Currently, most phone batteries need roughly 90 minutes to recharge. With a 60 Watt charging brick, a Real Graphene battery can take as little as 50 minutes. One might think that would exhaust the battery, but a graphene battery can outlast any typical phone battery. A Real Graphene battery will last up to a whopping 1500 charge cycles. This blows away all other phone batteries which normally last only 300-500 charge cycles.

Wondering how we are able to bring this superfast charging battery to life? At Real Graphene, we mix the graphene solution with lithium as well as add a sheet-like composite layer in the lithium battery. The graphene acts as a near perfect electricity conductor, which allows for a much slower heating process. This in turn, creates a graphene battery that can charge up to five times faster than a normal phone battery.

We are already shipping orders of our power banks and Real Graphene is ready to scale. Like we said, the future is here and we could easily fulfill a limited run of 100,000 units. If we were to ink a deal with a major phone manufacturer, you can expect about a year of ramp-up production before hitting the market.

What’s next for Real Graphene? Look out for our crowdfunding campaign to support two new battery packs:

  1. The G-100 – a 10,000mAh cell with 3 charging ports. Allows a recharge in as little as 20 minutes with a separate 100w charging brick. Expected price: $90 plus $15 for the 100w brick
  2. The G-100 Max Power Pack – has a 20,000 cell inside and charges in 40 minutes. Expected price: TBD

Both the future and the present remain exciting for graphene battery technology. According to Gong, “We create a battery that can charge superfast, is very cool, and has a long lifetime in terms of cycle charges.” And there is no shortage of people looking for a faster way to charge their devices.
