According to a report from a Chinese website, The Spanish Graphenano, along with the University of Cordoba and Grabat Energy, developed a polymeric graphene battery, especially suited for electric cars, that will be cheaper and lighter than conventional batteries and will run 1000km on a 10 minute charge. Graphenano claims that this revolutionary battery will be put into production in 2015.

Polymeric batteries can have a longer lifetime compared to conventional hybrid ones (up to four times!) and due to graphene's light weight, the battery itself will be light enough to improve the electric car's fuel efficiency.
This battery is even supposed to be 77% cheaper than lithium batteries, and it is rumored that prototypes have already been sent to several German car manufacturers, which at this time remain undisclosed.
Back in August 2014, Tesla's CEO said the company is developing a new battery technology that will almost double the capacity of its Li-Ion batteries. It was reported that Tesla is also looking into graphene technology for this project.
According to the “World News” had a message , Spain Graphenano company ( an industrial -scale production of graphene company) developed the first case of polymeric material graphene battery with the University of Cordoba , Spain , and its storage capacity is the best product currently on the market three times with this battery provides power for the electric carcan travel up to 1,000 kilometers, and its charging time of less than 8 minutes .
Graphenano company plans to put into production in 2015 of this battery , and plans with the German car company in two of the four ( now is not convenient to disclose the company name ) will be tested in this month, and electric vehicles.
The star of the current electric car industry car – Tesla chairman and product architect Alan Musk (Elon Musk) had boldly predicted in an interview with the British car magazine “Auto Express” interview , the future of electric vehicles is expected to reach Mileage about 800 km . The polymeric material graphene battery with the advent of automobile production or joint electric car industry will lead the new mileage.

Graphene is the thinnest , hardest material in the world, came out in 2004 , its discoverer , University of Manchester Andre – Heim (AndreGeim) professor who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010 .
Such polymeric material graphene longer battery life , twice to four times the conventional hydride batteries , lithium batteries. And because of the characteristics of graphene , this battery is only half the weight of conventional batteries , making the loading of the car battery is more lightweight , thereby improving vehicle fuel efficiency.
Although this battery is excellent in various properties , but its cost is not high . Graphenanocompany responsible person , this low cost than lithium battery 77% , entirely within the scope of the consumer to bear .
Moreover, in areas such as automotive fuel cells , graphene is also expected to bringrevolutionary progress .
Professor Wu Hengan University of Science and Technology of China, Wang Feng super Extraordinary Research Associate Professor Andreas Heim research group in collaboration with university researchers and, first discovered in the study transport properties of graphene and other types of film material , the graphene can as a good ” proton conducting membrane ,” the top international academic journal “Nature” published online November 26 of this research.
The fuel cell is a fuel having a chemical energy directly into electrical energy generating device . Compared with other batteries, has a high energy conversion efficiency , no environmental pollution. ” Proton conductive thin film ” is a core part of fuel cell technology , automobile fuel cell using oxygen and hydrogen as the fuel , chemical energy converted as a current input .
Existing proton film there is often a fuel leak , reduce the effectiveness of the battery , but the proton can be more easily “through” and other two-dimensional material graphene , and other substances is difficult to pass through , which can solve the problem of fuel penetration , increasing battery effectiveness.
Graphene films can be used to extract hydrogen atmosphere , implies that the material binding the hydrogen fuel cell is more easily extracted from the air . Karnik MIT professor pointed out this latest study confirms that , in theory, has reached the United States Department of Energy ‘s 2020 target proton exchange membrane transport properties in the comments.
This groundbreaking study , bringing a new discovery for the material properties of human cognition , such as graphene , and is expected to bring about revolutionary advances in the fieldof fuel cells and related hydrogen technologies .
