Samsung has patented a graphene-based battery that will fully charge within 15 minutes

Cool Gadgets
Samsung is pushing the limits of technology really hard these days. If you ask me, I truly believe they are one of the most innovative companies when it comes to smartohones, and the problem of smartphone autonomy seems to concern them quite seriously.
