What Does It Mean For Electric Cars — Samsung Battery Innovation

What Does It Mean For Electric Cars — Samsung Battery Innovation

To put that in perceptive, graphene is 100x more effective than copper in conducting electricity and 140x faster than silicon. The material is taking center stage as a new material for batteries and displays thanks to its high physical and chemical stability. Nevertheless, the potential impact of the technology on future Samsung phones would a big differentiating factor. But keeping graphene in its thin, fragile form still proves a hard task, especially for volatile uses such as relaying power.

SAIT researchers say the graphene ball coating can be used inside regular lithium-ion cells to increase a battery's capacity by up to 45 percent and decrease charging times fivefold. Samsung though has a solution with its new "Graphene balls"-based battery technology".

Crucially this development is able to stay at a steady and stable 60 degrees celsius.

After lithium-ion battery was first commercialized in 1991, its markets have been growing continuously as its application has expanded towards mobile devices and electric vehicles. By finding a cost-effective way to synthesize the material at scale, this means that, at the very least, Samsung has taken a step forward in bringing graphene batteries to the mass market. "It is expected that it will take about five years to produce the finished product", said an official in the battery industry. This "graphene ball" was utilised for both the anode protective layer and cathode materials in lithium-ion batteries. South Korea and the US are the two regions were Samsung has filed a patent for this new technology.

The new battery will replace current lithium-ion batteries found in phones, wearables and cars. Samsung, after all, does make batteries for more than just mobile devices.

Samsung's recently published paper on Nature reveals the mechanism behind this newly patented battery technology.

Samsung now claims to have developed battery material with 5x faster-charging speed.

These batteries have also reached their limit for capacity expansion.

Graphene, discovered by scientists from the University of Manchester in 2004, is the strongest material ever tested.
