Tired of recharging your batteries every 10 hours? Your problems have been heard. Scientists of UCLA,  Richard Kaner and Maher El-Kady recently made a groundbreaking discovery which might actually “change the world” or at least your battery*. The video posted below describes the battery which was made out of graphene that could light a bulb for 5 minutes with just charging it for 2-3 seconds.

To the science geeks out there, the experiment was originally intended to make high quality sheets of graphene which is by the way a Nobel Prize winning super material. In the course of experimentation the scientist found its electrical properties and more to their surprise it was one of the best super capacitors ever! 

A capacitor stores electrical charge and a word super indicate its predominance in the field. Experts say that this new discovery can be coined to be (super) super capacitor. The best part of whole experiment was the material could be made with a simple DVD-Burner.

Get your DVDs ready, we are going to make batteries!
