    I was watching a video recently about graphene batteries and apparently they are a thing now for mainstream. Yes I'm shocked too. Right now I've only seen them from this company called Real Graphene, they make power packs and the advertise quick fast charging with a 60W adapter and a 10Ah cell in about 50min. You can see product reviews online.

    Anyway, my point is I wonder if this is something we will see in Tesla's? Being able to fast charge at a constant rate from empty to full I'd amazing. Not only that but with graphene you get double the cycle life and heat reduction too.

    Interesting right?

    As far as I understood it the Graphene is added to the cell to aid conduction ability, this reduces resistance allowing for faster charge and discharge without overheating.

    Can be added to any current system as it’s only 1 micron thick. Should be really interesting.
