Samsung's new battery tech can fit 4000+ mAh in the size of the Galaxy S6 juicer
We are on the cusp of battery technology breakthroughs that would allow our spec'd-out smartphones to last for days. These technologies are not years away, mind you, and none other than Samsung announced that its R&D department has achieved a breakthrough into the all-important cathode material composition, which has been the pinnacle of recent efforts for increasing capacity while preserving battery size. 

Samsung has used something similar to the silicon cathode material we've told you about before, throwing graphene into the mix, and this has allowed 1.5-1.8 times the battery capacity in the same juicer size. This means that the battery that is currently in the Galaxy S6, for instance, will be able to hold 4000+ mAh capacity, which in turn would turn it into a two- or three-day battery phone with typical usage.

Moreover, the charge/discharge cycle numbers have also been preserved, which has been the bottleneck for the technology before. We knew that Samsung is working on "denser" batteries, and are glad to see things moving along nicely. Hopefully, this one will land in time for the Galaxy S7.

Your dream is to have ~30% more battery? O_O

How does 1.5 to 1.8x battery capacity turn into ~30% more in your little head?

Yep, it's 50-80% more aka freaking a lot. Think about electric cars, 50% more range :o.

I can bet we won't see this tech used in the next 5 years or so... I hope I'm in the wrong though.

Nah may be note 6.

Looks like even by the time of note 7 or S9.

The S7 and Note 6...maybe even the Note 5.

Put it in the note 5/ edge and it will sell like hot hot chocolate.

Samsung is such a beast, man.

This will first of all lead to thinner phones instead of increased battery capacity

And faster processors, more RAM, more radios. Just more stuff to make a phone use more battery. Zero net gain.

More ram doesnt equate to a massive increase in power usage. Also the octacore is more efficient than processors of old. The biggest Battery suck actually has been the higher resolution brighter screens.

I remember seeing posts from across the world about new battery technologies and new quick charging technologies for the past one year. But somehow these things dont seem to come to my mobile.

That's because why they all worked the life time of the battery was crap Samsung as come up with a way to keep it to normal life of a battery

Sound like a serious breakthrough. Sammy will make $$$ hand over fist with this one. Apple is no doubt already getting lawyers together to patent it... No actual details needed as usual.

Now that's what I'm talking about. Kudos Sammy, and get this into the S6 edge plus, if it drops. I'll be buying on for sure.

Wouldn't it be great if it were to actually fit in the S6...

Wish this technology apply to car batteries too... Lighter weight and longer distance!

Ofcourse, Samsung isn't only targeting phone batteries but car batteries too."Samsung has been working hard to improve its battery technologies which will not only aid its consumer electronics business but also give it a concrete footing in the burgeoning electric car market" - Sammobile

Great! I'll just buy one and slap it into my new... S.... 6. FU Sammy.

This won't be available until at least the GS8 and GN7.
