Phone batteries are often a frustrating element of mobile phones. As mobile phone technological features advance, the battery life of mobile phones seems to decrease. Phone batteries haven’t advanced that much in recent years, whereas mobile phones have. This means the power of phones is outweighing the capacity at which the batteries can function at.
Samsung however, are planning on switching from traditional lithium-ion batteries, to graphene-powered batteries. These graphene batteries will charge 5 times faster than lithium-ion batteries and will be able to hold up to 45% more capacity. They’ll also be smaller, slimmer whilst having a similar surface temperature. Although, these batteries are thought to be expensive and won’t be available on the market until 2021.
There are some phones currently on the market, however, which do have a powerful battery life. Battery Experts have analysed the top 10 phones currently on the market for battery power, and compared how these same phones would perform with a Graphene powered battery.
If these predicted figures are accurate, then graphene-powered phones could be a game-changer from Samsung.
With a patent on graphene batteries, other phone manufacturers such as Apple and Huawei will need to be just an innovative as Samsung, if they are to match the longevity and efficiency of this new generation of graphene-powered mobile phones.
