Smartphones Fully Charged in Under 15 Minutes? Samsung Says They’re Coming Soon

Yeah, we know. Samsung has had a good year, but they’re always going to catch some grief when it comes to batteries, and for good reason. But, there’s reason to get excited about Samsung battery news today — the company says they’ve developed charging technology that could fully charge smartphone batteries at incredible speeds using an emerging new super material.


We’ve heard a little about graphene before — the material is amazingly thin and light, and is produced in layers of carbon that are only a single atom thick! Despite being thinner than a strand of hair, the material is incredibly strong. We’ve already seen it used in dresses and headphones, but now it looks like graphene is ready to get down to business!
