Huawei Unveils Graphene Assisted Li-ion Battery 2x Longer


Grapheme based li-ion batteries have been introduced by Watt Laboratories that works under Huawei Central Research Institute while these batteries are claimed to be last longer than traditional batteries.

Li-ion Batteries

A Li-Ion battery is mostly present in your laptops and smartphones and their maximum age is between two to three years. After that, you either have to replace the battery or smartphone/laptop.

Graphene Assisted Li-ion Battery

As compared to ordinary Li-Ion batteries, this new battery can work about 10 degrees higher at 60 degrees Celsius. According to claim of the makers, these batteries can last twice longer than ordinary batteries and one of the important reasons is that they remain cooler than regular batteries while running. It is important because heat reduces the battery life.

Chief scientist at Watt Laboratories, Yangxing Li, said that the grapheme assisted Li-Ion battery remained 5 degree cooler than ordinary Li-Ion batteries while working at same parameters. After recharging 2000 times at 60 degree C, more than 70% capacity of grapheme battery was left. When it is kept for 200 days in 60 degree Celsius environment, it loses its capacity by less than 13%.

Useful in Pakistan

In high temperature areas like Pakistan, these batteries are very useful especially in summer. In summer, temperature usually goes above 40 degree Celsius in most areas of Pakistan and the batteries of smartphones are impacted negatively with usage. We can see lot of adoption of these batteries in smartphones if the claims about these batteries proved true.

Most of the times, any change in battery or charging advancement is showed as an achievement or revolution but this time the claim is made by famous manufacturing company Huawei due to which we can soon expect large scale production of these batteries.

In 2015, Huawei introduced a new and feast charging technology which can charge 48% of a 3,000 mAh battery in just 5 minutes. According to unconfirmed reports, this new fast charging technology will be introduced this month by the company.
