Samsung working on new battery technology

Samsung is trying to tackle the old "not enough battery power" issues that plagues every mobile device with new graphene batteries. The talk surrounding this new battery tech sounds promising with them saying it would carry 45% more capacity than lithium-ion and be able to fully charge in 12 minutes. Let's all cross our fingers that this actually work out. TNW has the details.

While persistent efforts in phone design and software optimization have got us to the point where our handsets can now last a day on a single charge, there’s work to be done yet if we’re heading for a future rife with VR and AR apps.

To that end, Samsung says it’s inching closer to making better batteries, thanks to its breakthroughs in using graphene in place of lithium, which currently powers most phones and electric vehicles.
