This article first appeared on the Hephaestus Project - Energy blog. By David Fuchs Six months ago, Northwestern University professor Harold Kung theorized that, using a graphene–silicon mixture, there was a way to extend a new lithium-ion battery's charge by 10 times and increase its lifespan by a factor of 10. The technology theorized by Harold Kung could allow for cell phone batteries to be charged in 15 minutes and hold a week’s worth of charge. It could also allow greater … Read More
