Samsung patents ‘graphene ball’ technology that will improve charging speeds

Samsung is always on to what’s next, and the South Korean conglomerate just patented a new technology known as ‘graphene ball’. The aim is to drastically improve fast charging and battery duration.

According to ZDNet, this graphene ball will make lithium-ion batteries last up to 45% percent longer and charge at up to five times the current rate. For a device that takes an hour to charge, this means that graphene ball can charge the same battery in around twelve minutes, and, make your device last longer on a single charge.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard a company discover ground-braking battery tech innovation, but all these experiments were never commercialized, or brought to market. Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT), the group behind the development, has been successful with innovation in the past and bringing them to reality, so we have hopes for this one.

Samsung’s graphene ball technology could be the next power method many have been waiting for, and as you can see, it could change everything for devices we use everyday. We’ve always dreamed of not having to worry about battery life constantly running out, but these days could still be a ways away. We’ll keep our finger crossed.
