Sunvault Energy announced that it, in conjunction with the Edison Power Company, has completed the development of a graphene-enhanced Smartphone Battery Case that is built initially for the IPhone. Smartphone case designs for major brands such as LG and Samsung and other Smartphone manufactured devices are to follow shortly. The Company will be submitting this prototype for certification and verification.
The Battery Case will provide approximately 5000 mAh (milliamp hours) of energy to the first prototype IPhone model. The case will charge in roughly 3 minutes and will provide approximately 200% of additional power for most smartphones that are in the average 2400 mAh battery range. In addition to the fast charging, the case will not experience or generate any significant heat, and will have the unique attributes of both a battery and supercapacitor. Additional attributes will include superior cycles that will go far beyond the Lithium Ion spec of 500 cycles of charge / discharge before battery requires replacement. It will also be considerably lighter than current products on the market. The Company will start by focusing on the top Smartphone lines, which include: Samsung, Apple IPhone, Lenovo, LG, Huawei, Xiaomi and Sony.
Edison Power Company will be launching a KICKSTARTER campaign for all Smartphone users in the near future. This will be a unique opportunity for Smartphone users to be first in line to receive the 5000 mAh battery case. The technology for this product is based on the work of Robert Murray-Smith, PHD, who has been added to Sunvault's Board of Directors in June 2015. Dr. Robert Murray-Smith is a renowned PHD that has become one of the World’s best authorities on graphene.
