The new graphene batteries are reportedly ready to be installed on smartphones. The American company “Real Graphene” says this.
This company believes that its batteries have everything to be present in smartphones and has already sent copies to several manufacturers to start their installations in their prototype equipment.

Advantages of graphene batteries in smartphones
- Much faster charging (0% to 100% in 20 minutes on a 3000mAh battery)
- More than triple life cycles (batteries last much longer)
- Autonomy lasts much longer
- More environmentally friendly
- Batteries are not “addicted”
According to the company “Real Graphene” your batteries can charge from 0% to 100% in just 20 minutes. These tests were done on a 3000 mAh battery. In turn, a lithium battery achieves the same in 90 minutes of charging.
The company also guarantees that your battery will be able to have up to 1500 charge cycles. Again, compared to lithium batteries that give us an average of 300 to 500 cycles.
Graphene batteries are still seriously expensive
However, not everything is a bed of roses. According to investigations, a small graphene film for smartphones will cost manufacturers $ 25.
Some time ago it was estimated that a kilo of graphene could cost more than 200 thousand euros. In comparison, a kilo of lithium has a value of around € 600.
We can then realize that if any manufacturer dares to launch a graphene battery on their smartphones, its price will not be the same as a “normal” battery.
Still, it is worth considering the evolution of batteries in technological equipment. All technologies are expensive when they are launched. However, as soon as the technique is improved and developed with more companies in the sector creating competition, the cheaper it gets. Hopefully it won’t be long before we have such a battery on our smartphones.
