• dailymail

Researchers have revealed a radical new type of battery that could charge a mobile phone or even a car in seconds.

Called micro-scale graphene-based supercapacitors, the devices can charge and discharge a hundred to a thousand times faster than standard batteries.

Made from a one-atom–thick layer of carbon, can be easily manufactured and readily integrated into gadgets - and could even lead to far smaller phones.

The team say their breakthrough could least to faster charging phones and cars, but also smaller gadgets.
