Today, a typical cell phone battery takes between two and five hours to fully recharge. Researchers think using new battery materials with graphene could cut recharge time to less than 10 minutes.
Vorbeck Materials Corp., in collaboration with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), operated by Battelle for the Department of Energy, announces a cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) to develop Li-ion battery electrodes using Vorbeck’s unique graphene material, Vor-xTM. These new battery materials could enable electronic devices and power tools that recharge in minutes rather than hours or function as part of a hybrid battery system to extend the range of electric vehicles.
