  • Unveiled by Chinese company Dongxu Optoelectronics at an event in Beijing at the beginning of July, the battery pack is called the G-King
  • The Chinese company claims that the battery regains its lost charge in a matter of 13-15 minutes
  • Apart from smartphones, these batteries might be a breakthrough in the world of electric cars as well

While the companies selling smartphones and batteries continue to boast about fast recharging systems, but how fast can they really be? Can they recharge your phone completely in less than 15 minutes? Well, it is now possible with the coming of the world’s first ‘ Graphene’ battery pack.

Here is everything that you need to know about the world’s fastest battery recharging systems listed by businessinsider.com:

  • Unveiled by Chinese company Dongxu Optoelectronics at an event in Beijing at the beginning of July, the battery pack is called the G-King.
  • G-King has a capacity of 4,800mAh, which is considerably higher than any contemporary technology we find in smartphones, small tablets, and compact laptops like the 11-inch MacBook Air.

  • The Chinese company claims that the battery regains its lost charge in a matter of 13-15 minutes.
  • G-King is strong enough to discharge and then again recharge up to 3,500 times, which is approximately seven times the strength of a regular Li-Ion battery.
  • Made out of wonder material, Graphene, the battery has the potential to revolutionise the world of battery technology.

  • Apart from smartphones, these batteries might be a breakthrough in the world of electric cars as well.
  • Dongxu hasn’t yet announced the launch of G-Kings commercially. It hasn’t revealed any information on when will the battery or its derivative reach us.

Aiming to achieve a breakthrough in battery life, Huawei Consumer Business Group on Monday unveiled the industry’s first patented lithium-silicon battery that promises to greatly improve fast-charging capability and ensures safety.

This patented technology is an iteration of the battery that is likely to be used in upcoming Huawei smartphones, the company said in a statement.

The silicon anodes in the Lithium-Silicon battery hold more power than graphite-based versions, thus making the battery more durable and increasing its power-retention capacity.

“Just like how multi-touch technology changed the way displays work, Huawei’s ultra-fast charging technologies will redefine the way people use smartphones and free users from nomophobia — the fear of having no access to phones,” said the company.

The new batteries are coated with a 3D nitrogen-doped carbon network and this coating can be synthesised at a relatively lower temperature and has high conductivity, resulting in ultra-fast charging.

Unlike traditional fast-charging solutions, ultra-fast technology employs a relatively low-voltage and high-current formula that aims to maximize the amount of current going into the device while minimizing efficiency losses, heat as well as throttling.

“This innovation is based on electrochemical kinetics advancements, which enable ultra-fast charging batteries to support greater power efficiency and current input. Leveraging the nitrogen-doped carbon frame, Huawei improved the stability intercalation and deintercalation of lithium,” the company added.
