Despite the fact that modern smartphones have become very functional and useful devices, they still have one significant drawback: battery life. And if you create and introduce a new type of high-capacity battery on the market is difficult, why not come up with a device that would charge existing batteries in 5 minutes? This is exactly what the developers from the American company Elecjet have done.
According to the publication Digital Trends, experts from Elecjet managed to create the world’s first portable USB-C-battery, which can charge smartphones, tablets and laptops in a record short time. The battery supports charging in the range of 5 to 60 watts. As the tests showed, with the help of the new device, the fully discharged iPhone X and iPhone 8 are charged in 90 minutes, and the less capricious iPhone 5, 6, 7 and SE require charging in just 5-10 minutes. As stated by one of Elecjet’s employees Wade Lam,
“A key feature of the project is a battery based on graphene, manufactured by our partner CellsX, which has 13 years specializing in the production of composite batteries based on graphene. Graphene provides ultra-fast charging of your devices. The battery can fully charge your device while you are drinking coffee, in addition, you will also always have a laptop outlet in your pocket. “
The first graphene charge is scheduled for delivery in 2018. It is also worth noting that at the moment Elecjet is developing a City Delivery electric bike with a power reserve of 100 kilometers, and charging time does not exceed 20 minutes.
