Researchers at UCLA have discovered a way to make graphene batteries that charge fast, are inexpensively produced, non-toxic, and efficient.
The micro-supercapacitors created by Kaner and El-Kady are highly bendable and twistable and will be ideal for future flexible displays, e-paper, and wearable electronics.
Graphene batteries sound almost too good to be true. In addition to super fast charging, they don’t have any negative environmental impact. They are biodegradable and even compostable.
“We are now looking for industry partners to help us mass-produce our graphene micro-supercapacitors,” Kaner said.
