And no platiunum. There is plenty of carbon so its cost is tied only to manufacturing. Platinum yo have to spend a lot of money finding and refining. And, of course, graphene strikes again. Did I say we may be living in the Graphene Century? Sure looks like it.

Chunky mobile devices? Soft graphene could help you downsize | Chemistry | Scoop.it
Assuming you are geeky enough to open up any mobile device on the market – a phone, tablet or laptop – the most glaringly obvious component of the device is the battery: it generally consumes up to (if not more than) 60% of space.
