The graphene super capacitor.

Not a term most of us have come across but it could be one of the most important scientific discoveries of the century.  The reason - for decades the scientific and business communities have been searching to find a more efficient battery.  With so many of the devices that we require to conduct our everyday lives now running on batteries and these devices getting more power hungry and smaller, the ability to charge these devices is becoming the limiting factor in their design.  So imagine a high energy storage device that could charge and discharge between 100 - 1000 times faster than a conventional battery and is not made from toxic metals!

Enter scientists Richard Kaner and Maher El-Kady who had been investigating how to produce the wonder material graphene more efficiently and accidentally discovered something ground breaking.  Check out the video for more…
