Future smartphones will take less time than ever before to get fully charged. On Tuesday, Samsung’s Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) announced that it has built a new battery technology which will help smartphones to get charged much faster. For example, the company said while the current fast charging technology takes a smartphone, at least, an hour to get fully charged, Samsung’s new battery technology would take only 12 minutes. Sounds incredible, doesn’t it?
Regarding of Samsung’s new battery technology the company said that, “The new technology includes a single layer of carbon atoms from graphite, known as graphene, which is 100 times more effective than copper in conducting electricity. It also transfers energy 140 times faster than silicon used in current lithium technology, which makes it an ideal material for fast charge.”

Most interestingly, this technology is not only for smartphone batteries. Electric vehicles’ batteries can also be charged by it. And yes, more or less this futuristic technology might help to give the battery a longer lifespan. As the new technology has enough potential for more capacity.
Samsung didn’t say anything in reaction to its new battery technology when contacted.
