In a few years, if the dreams of graphene battery pioneers are realised, your dead phone will revive to 100% in less than 15 mins. The first Graphene battery packs are already arriving from China and, and one manufacturer Dongxu claims their battery regains its lost charge in 13 to 15 minutes. The battery shouldn’t fall over after a single recharge either. Dongxu says the cell is strong enough to be discharged and recharged 3,500 times, which it states is seven times the strength of a conventional Li-Ion battery.
This could have strong implications for smartphone habits and use, with users less worried about their precious devices running out of juice when they most need them!
