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.
- 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.
