Graphene 3D Lab recently introduced their 3D printed graphene battery prototype in the Inside 3D Printing Conference in Santa Clara, California. The prototype battery is composed of nanoplatelets of graphene that are added to polymers, and can already produce the same amount of energy as a common AA battery. The company states that these batteries will be able to be integrated into a 3D-printed object while that object is still being built, which grants the batteries enhanced performance potential (compared to non-integrated batteries) due to precise customization.
Since the battery is still in prototype phase, last month Graphene 3D Labs announced a partnership with Stony Brook University in Long Island, NY, for a round of quality control testing to get it to the next step.
Graphene 3D Lab is a joint-venture between Graphene Labs and Lomiko Metals. The company focuses on the development of high-performance graphene-enhanced materials for 3D Printing. Graphene 3D Lab trades in the Canadian stock exchange (TSX:GGG), and we recently posted an interview with the company's founder and COO.
Back in May 2013, Lomiko Metals, SBUY and Graphene Labs signed an agreement to investigate graphene based applications - mainly supercapacitors and batteries.
