Graphene is regarded as one of the best nano-materials currently available, due to its various properties such as its thinness, electrical and thermal conductivity and its strength.
Thanks to its extensive properties, it is nicknamed “black gold.” Research suggests that China’s graphene industry will form a market with a value exceeding hundreds of billions of yuan by 2020.
Chinese company, Zhejiang Chilwee Power,? is using the nanomaterial to develop lead-acid batteries with longer battery lives, power performances and load capacities. Chilwee unveiled its latest generation battery using graphene on Sunday, promising a much better performance than previous lead-acid
Chilwee BG (BLACK GOLD) Series high energy VRLA Battery is specially designed based on Graphene Technology, which has obviously improve the battery’s capacity, output power, cycle life and high/low temperature performance. The Chilwee BG (BLACK GOLD) Series provides longer range, largerer power and extremely long life for motive power applications, i.e. electric bicycles, electric tricycles, electric motocycles and other device require DC power source.
