Researchers at UCLA are in the midst of pursuing a true miracle in energy storage, through the use of graphene for supercapacitor production. Graphene is a flexible, strong and very highly conductible carbon product that has the ability to store energy in a faster method than anything we currently have. To put it into perspective, the use of graphene supercapacitors could allow you to plug your cell phone in and have it completely charged in just a few minutes. Another idea for common use would be to have the ability to plug your electric car in, and instead of it taking hours, it will take only the amount of time it would normally take for you to fill your tank at the local gas station to bring a full charge.
