Seoul, South Korea-based graphene producer and applications developer KoreaGraph has announced the development of fast-charging graphene-infused lithium-ion batteries, which it’s currently in the process of testing.
The company said after trying various metals in its fast-charging battery technology, only graphene provided the levels of thermal and electric conductivity needed while also being the safest substance tested.
“After many, many months of research, the current li-ion battery technology is restricted by recharging time which we plan to improve by the addition of graphene properties. Our analysts believe that the certain characteristics graphene possess would significantly improve the performance of lithium-ion battery technology and graphene will play a part in the future of Li-ion battery applications,” said KoreaGraph’s chief development officer in a news release.
He added, “With the foundations and the technology team we have in place, KoreaGraph is uniquely positioned to develop graphene infused Li-ion batteries. We have expertise in graphene and lithium-ion battery technology and we are working with high purity Lithium-ion anode battery powder and we have a supply for both graphene and anode powder fabrication processes. KoreaGraph’s aim is to develop battery technology that can store more capacity and deliver more power at lower cost.”
