    Damn! This is cool as hell! But I have to wonder about this vs solid state batteries, will they compete? Or will a way to merge them be found? Mind you, solid state batteries are still a few years away from market, but they are making good progress. Current lab samples provide similarly increased lifetimes in charge cycles as these graphene ones, but they also provide much higher energy density. No matter what happens, I'm excited to see what's next.

    I imagine when chips get more energy efficient like the M1 from mac this will help battery life on devices too a lot in the near future, couple with this it'd be amazing if you could squeeze a week's worth of use out of your device without charging it.

    Great video! I just wanted to say that the whole 2 layers of graphene being bullet proof thing is incorrect. Researchers fired a microbullet(1 micron in diameter) at 2 layers and the layers disintegrated, a few years ago researched at Rice fired a microbullet at 300 layers and it fully stopped the bullet, but this is still with a microbullet. A full bullet might require 1 million layers, however, even at 1 million layers it would only be .34mm thick!

      @J Smith the research shows that the diamond properties resulting from impact only occurs with a two atom thick layer no more no less. it doesn't work if its 3 atoms thick or more. its only 10x times better than steel in that 2 atom thick ideal arrangement so its not that special of stuff.

    While graphene is definitely interesting stuff--there are related exciting materials also. For example, a Canadian researcher discovered that if you graphitize a cellulose material with a high content of crystalline cellulose (hemp, flax linen, ramie, etc) it becomes very highly conductive--as conductive as some lab created graphene samples and can store a lot of energy (especially in a super capacitor sense). He took some hemp fiber, soaked it in some water with potassium hydroxide and heated it up to around 800C (if I remember correctly) in a non oxygen environment.
    While I can't say with certainty, it seems to be a sort of carbon nanotube/graphene like combo.
    What's interesting is that one can fairly easily concentrate the crystalline cellulose. Hemp fibers for example, contain around 70% crystalline cellulose. You can easily concentrate that to around 95% content. If the former was quite conductive; just imagine how much the latter will be? Plus, it will also become nano sized when you put it through that process.
    One could built a super solar oven (as I'm doing), and have a source of free energy to convert these cellulostic materials into carbons and graphites. As far as a no oxygen atmosphere, you can can do a low oxygen atmosphere fairly easily, just by putting some paper and baking soda combo over the materials to be heated in a closed lid container (like a steel can).
    So if you can make a good amount of this stuff for relatively inexpensive, and create a super capacitor-battery hybrid, you could get pretty good energy density and charge time. This is what I'll be working on.

  • Patrik Andersson
    Patrik Andersson Year ago

    As someone who works with steel I get triggered when I hear "x amounts of times stronger than steel". Steel is not one material. It depends on its composition. Some break easily when bent, others bend easily without breaking, others have a very hard surface. While I'm sure graphene is "strong", whatever that means. Making the comparison to steel requires one to be very specific with what type of steel.

      A supermarket is a destination too, isn’t it? But if you have to charge several times each day then your range is clearly too small.

      @ConservatorThe trick of driving an EV is charging at your destination, not in between.
      Quite the opposite. Trick to own and use EV in daily life is to charge whenever you can, you buy some stuff at supermarket- use charging station, at work- charging station.
      It is ICE thinking- I can drive and when I need I will just refuel.
      Problem with EV is not in range, it is a car that you cannot relly on. If something unexpected happens- your cousin broke a leg 350 km away from you, come and get her, you cannot just run to your car and drive if you do not have fast and reliable grid of charging stations. EV will replace ICE only when battery tech will become as trustworthy as fuel.

      Charging of small baterys like the one in your electric skatebord is usualy not a big problem there are high drain cells on the market and they can be charged 10 to 70% in like half an h.
      you just need to get the heat away thats the problem. Alsow its kind of anoying to carry a 0,5kW Psu with you when you are on the go. @ home you have no problem and can charge slow so no point of having a fastcharger that just lives there

      The speed of charging isn’t a real issue as you usually charge your car at night. That means you always leave home in the morning fully charged and that should be more than sufficient for one day.
      Range anxiety and emphasis on charge speeds is typically ‘fuel station’ thinking. The trick of driving an EV is charging at your destination, not in between.

    Given that it was discovered just using scotch tape and regular graphite, one wonders why it took so long? Had no one conceptualized such a material previously?

    Very interesting how this technology to this day still hasn't been used to improve battery performance. I could be wrong but from a marketing standpoint this is something big companies will avoid for as long as possible since there's quite a lot of people that buy a new phone after their batteries has worn out. With this that replacement-cycle would be lengthened. I just wish there was a company making the first step to push all others into evolving. Im absolutely not informed on the process of getting graphene but if the process is like Samuel Gong described it must be do-able with large funding and operating sites/larger production-lines.

    My understanding is that a graphine battery is really an array of super capacitors. Conventional batteries store energy in a chemical form and thus take time to process this input of energy. Capacitors store energy as an electric field and so do not need time for the chemical change process.

    Some of the 'wasted' heat of an ICE engine is useful -particularly if you live in cold climates. An electric battery must provide this heat energy too when needed. Using electricity for heat is quite inefficient. I mention this because its a factor to consider when comparing different engine technologies. It might be possible to replace a prop plane with an electric motor but a jet uses the full heat energy of the fuel... Large electric 'jet' planes are a long way off IMO.

    If they ever make a car that can run for 4-500 miles on a single charge and recharge to full capacity in less than hour and has zero emissions and does less environmental impact than building and running a regular car for 10 years, I’m in. But while zero emissions is a worthy goal the mining of material used in these batteries is pretty terrible for the environment.

    Whilst it is a graphene-augmented lithium cell it is a step in the right direction. The more people there are producing graphene and working on graphene cells, the faster we will have affordable cells providing the performance that graphene promises.
    Battery technology has been an ever present performance bottleneck in various electronic devices for quite some time and this could make a meaningful difference.

  • Richard Robertson
    Richard Robertson 4 months ago +2

    Chemistry is my field, not electronics, so I have a basic question due to my ignorance on this subject. Too many terms are being used interchangeably. A battery produces a potential flow of electrons because two or more materials have an electrical potential difference between them. So lithium, and just about anything else, can be used as a battery. The same could be said for fluorine, which is on the opposite end of the electrical potential spectrum. Graphite, on the other hand, transfers electrons better than almost anything else, but it's electrical potential difference with other things is poor, very poor. So graphite would make an excellent, light weight "wire" or capacitor or generator or alternator, but not a battery. Please enlighten me; what am I missing when almost everyone talks about "graphite batteries"?

    Seems like yinlong battery users are finally able to charge builds fast as hell but until actual cells in electronics change to match its not worth buying just yet...

      ​@Eric Yuan its not good business for phone makers/battery manufacturers. So theyll increase charge speeds to degrade the battery at the same rate as before... but youll be able to charge the phone 0 to 100 in 5 mins. The economics of throwing sht away asap to buy it again.

    • nelsonbutcher1

      @TheNicholasWayne im talking about the number of charges you can get out of a battery. Current 500ish (about 1.5 years of normal use before serious degradation) vs 1500 full recharges. Thats the crazy part. I can live with the same capacity if it charges faster and wont be garbage in a year of my use.

    One thing we know, if you charge a normal battery or graphene battery with 60 watt, it will generate the same amount of heat into the battery and that will end up damaging the phone / melt it if it gets too hot, this is the main problem with battery charging, n1 not to break the battery, n2 not to damage the phone by charging at too high power.
    60w is 60w regardless and will generate teh same amount of heat even if you're charging an iceberg.

    Lithium Ion is superior to Nickel Cadmium and Nickel Metal Hydride batteries because there was no reduction in operation when the battery was low on power like the other 2. It would give up the same amount of power from full charge until it was completely depleted.
    Does the Graphene battery work in the same manner, full run power until fully depleted?

      If ur Phone doesnt "Hold up" as it should, calibrate the battery if its an Android. You can do this easily with Root Priviliges, or the "longer way" with properly charging and discharging the phone 2 times.
      What you need to do for the long route:
      Discharge ur phone till it goes off.
      PowerCycle it as long as its possible, so the Battery is REALLY Empty, not just "fake Empty".
      If thats done and the phone bearly turns on, let it go off, wait 15 Seconds and plug it in.
      DON´T Turn it on, let it charge up in one go, till the display shows 100 Percent and wait an extra 15 or 20 Minutes to be sure.
      Turn ur phone on.
      Once its on and u put in your Pin, unplug the cable. Let it drain the Battery without recharging in between and do the same again. Android will calibrate the batterystats.bin correctly. If that doesnt work you may have a faulty part in ur phone, which leads to energy drain.
      Hope it helps.

    So they're basically lithium ion batteries with flecks of graphene in them. You've been able to get them for drones for a couple of years now, and you can get much better power levels from lithium titanate (can sharge and discharge 100% in 6 min).
    The actually interesting graphene batteries are the pure graphene supercapacitors which are meant to have higher capacity than lithium, and charge / discharge in seconds, but you cant reliably produce large enough sheets of graphene for them to leave the lab yet

      @Real Graphene USA Hi there, first of all I'd like to thank you for your clarification regarding the sponsorship status of this video and for taking the time to respond. As for questions related to the product - I would like to know more about the electrodes employed in this graphene enhanced battery. Is it a sheet of graphene applied over a standard electrode? If so, how exactly does this help with conductivity? Wouldn't the electricity be conducted more rapidly across the graphene sheet but then still have to pass through the higher resistance of the (presumably metal) electrode? I'd also be interested to hear a more indepth explanation of the nature of the graphene nano-platelets dispersed through the battery, how much graphene is dispersed through the lithium ion cells and do you guys have any interesting data on the extent to which this effects heat dispersion in your product? Thank you again for the response, looking forward to hearing back. :)

    Essentially the same reason the AA battery makers added acetylene black (replacing previously used graphite) back in the 1990's.... increased capacity, longer life... Acetylene black is the 1 dimensional form of carbon (chain) with delocalized electron bonds (Carbon triple bonded carbon alternating with single bonded carbon forming a chain with delocalized electrons like graphene has).

  • Jonathan Bojorquez

    I can't help but remember that quantum computers are bulky because they create a ton of heat from all the energy consumption and so they need tremendous cooling.

    Safety issues related to key materials and cell design techniques , including cathode, anode, electrolyte, and separator, are the fundamental of the battery. Cell design and fabrication techniques also have significant influence on the cell's electrochemical and safety performances. Thermal runaway (TR) in single cell level would cause chain reactions and whole battery pack failure, resulting in catastrophic effect in electric vehicles or energy storage devices. Therefore, it's of vital importance to understand the factors which may potentially lead to TR in single cells. Battery Power Online that this is important because successful mitigation techniques ultimately lead to the design safer batteries with adequate thermal management systems. A few things can trigger thermal runaway events. Thermal runaway can be initiated from mechanical or thermal failures. Electro-chemical abuse from overcharging or over-discharging the cell can also initiate thermal runaway. Also, there’s the possibility of an internal short circuit within the cell leading to thermal runaway. Any of these events can lead to elevated temperatures that are high enough to induce rapid exothermic decomposition of the cell materials. However, graphene and other competing local materials can be a major breakthrough and further environmental issues if there are any as a result of waste disposal etc. of the materials.

    If these batteries can successfully get put inside electric cars and eventually dramatically lower the cost of them. And dramatically lower the time it takes to charge them. We could see much more EVs on the road in the next 10 years.

    I have a 10,000 mAh battery charger which legit takes a near full 24 hours to charge from empty. It's a fairly thin one so it doesn't use those inefficient tube batteries but it still takes ages.
    Charging that much in 24 hours would be amazing, although it wouldn't matter too much to me because I hardly use my battery pack & when I do it's got 2.1A fast charging so unless I'm camping for multiple days not using my car then I hardly need this charger & its plenty enough as is. Also I have 2 & considering I've never had to fully use the first one I'll say that for the moment I'm perfectly good with my battery reserves.
