The new battery is expected to have a twice the lifespans of existing batteries.
Chinese smartphone maker Huawei on Thursday announced the world's first long-lifespan graphene-assisted Li-ion battery which can withstand high temperatures and remain functional even in a 60 degrees Celsius environment which is 10 degrees Celsius higher than the existing upper limit in smartphone batteries.
The lifespan of the graphene-assisted Li-ion batteries is expected to be twice as long as ordinary Li-ion batteries."
In a statement scientists working on the battery said, "Over 70 percent of the graphene battery's capacity is left after it is recharged 2,000 times at a temperature of 60 degrees Celsius. Less than 13 percent of its capacity is lost after being kept in a 60 degrees Celsius environment for 200 days."
