Motley Fool article explores the wonders of graphene and it’s potential for revolutionizing how we power our world. In it, they highlight the innovative work of Nanotech’s scientists. “Dr. Richard Kaner and Maher El-Kady are working on graphene-based supercapacitors that promise to combine the energy density of traditional batteries with the ability to charge up to a thousand times faster. As an added bonus these supercapacitors could be made cheaply and without any environmentally harmful materials (they are biodegradable and can even be composted).

Just how fast are we talking? Well, they claim that this technology could charge an iPhone in five seconds, a MacBook in 30 seconds, and an electric car in the same time it takes to fill up a gas tank. Better yet, the micro-supercapacitors are highly flexible and bendable. This means they would make ideal power sources for future foldable and wearable electronics.” Read the full article, here.
